A BioPen that Allows Surgeons to Draw Bones

1. A handheld bio pen developed in the labs of the University of Wollongong will allow surgeons to design customised implants during surgery. 2. Injectable hydrogel scaffold undergoes rapid gelation from a soluble liquid at room temperature (left) to a stable, nonshrinking gel at body temperature (right) in a minute.[/caption] Scientists at the University of […]

Go Paperless with Agilent’s Enhanced Electronic Laboratory Notebook

Agilent Technologies’ revised version of electronic laboratory notebook (ELN), OpenLAB ELN 4.2, is now available for scientists and laboratory managers. The ease and speed with which users can capture, store, catalog and retrieve laboratory information with OpenLAB ELN 4.2 outperforms its competitors Labguru, Syapse and LabArchives. Unlike Labguru’s file uploading function, convenient cross-team collaboration and […]

Spinnovation Elemental Analysis for Culture Media and Raw Materials.

With the Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES) method, Spinnovation Biologics introduces a new elemental and trace metals analysis for cell culture media. Elemental Analysis is offered in addition to the existing advanced cell culture analysis platform to support customers in the optimization of upstream processing and cell culture development. This includes characterization of raw […]

Spinning Disk Statistical Imaging (SDSI) System: The Improved Super-Resolution Microscopy

A team of researchers (Dr. Neveen Hosny, a bioengineer from Prof. Martin Knight, School of Engineering and Materials Science; Dr. Ann Wheeler, Head of Imaging at Queen Mary’s Blizard Institute) from the Queen Mary University of London have developed a Spinning Disk Statistical Imaging (SDSI) system that offers super-resolution imaging of a range of cellular […]

TAP Biosystems Develops New Method for Bioprocessing Automation with ambr Micro Bioreactors

By using their very own ambr micro bioreactor system, scientists at TAP Biosystems developed a new method for microcarrier cell culture. In addition to dispensing consistent microcarrier samples at microscale (10 – 15 mL), this new automated method allows rapid process optimization, improves productivity and shortens timelines particularly in vaccine production and development of cell […]

CryoELITE Tissue Vial by WHEATON for Cryogenic Storage

WHEATON offers CryoELITE Tissue Vials for secure cryogenic storage – a solution for cryopreservation of biological tissue specimens. The CryoELITE Tissue Vials are meant to maintain sample integrity with the uniformity in manufacture, an important feature sought after by the researchers working with tissue biospecimens. WHEATON achieves this by using low binding, cryogenic-grade virgin polypropylene […]

Researchers Develop a Novel 3-D Method to Grow Miniature Pancreas

An international research team led by Professor Anne Grapin-Botton of the Danish Stem Cell Center at the University of Copenhagen has established a novel 3-D culture method to grow miniature pancreas from progenitor cells, which aims to unravel various aspects of pancreas development. The new method offers a long term potential to fight against diabetes […]
