Often referred to as “mini-organs”, organoids are tiny self-organizing 3D assemblies of cells which show some physiological features of a specific organ. As an intermediate between traditional 2D in vitro cell cultures and animal models, organoids are a useful tool for several applications.READ MORE
From car exhausts to building construction, from city-wide clouds of pollution to colossal power plants with billowing masses of smog, it can be easy to think of air pollution as something you leave outside when you walk indoors - but homes can have their own air quality issues.READ MORE
There are lots of reasons to culture bacteria, many sources from which to culture them and diverse species with equally diverse growth requirements – some pickier than others. To give yourself a fighting chance at successful bacterial culture it is therefore vital to pick the correct culture conditions for your purpose and avoid contamination by using good aseptic technique.READ MORE
For proteomics researchers, work is almost impossible without mass spectrometry (MS). Neuroscience, however, has largely got by without dipping its toe into the pool of analytical chemistry. With the advent of faster, smarter MS tools, those days may be numbered, as MS-based techniques become an invaluable resource for studying the brain.READ MORE
The pharmaceutical industry is facing pressures to optimize the drug discovery phase of the drug development pipeline. One approach to doing this is by adopting automation. Download this infographic to learn more about the benefits of an automated drug discovery laboratory.
