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.
What is personalized medicine (PM) and why do we need it? Download this infographic to learn about PM, a movement with the potential to help match patients to therapies far more efficiently than the current “trial and error” approach.READ MORE
Cryopreservation, the use of very low temperatures and cryoprotectants to preserve structurally intact cells and tissues, is essential to many areas of research and medicine. Find out why cryopreservation is used, how cryoprotectants reduce cell shrinkage, and learn about the therapies dependent on successful cryopreservation.READ MORE
