The 3 industry developments you need to know about in flow cytometry

Written by Olivia Lowden on Jan 6, 2023 9:00:00 AM

flow-cytometry

Flow cytometry is a popular analytical technique used in research and clinical laboratories. The process uses a laser to quickly analyze a population of cells submersed in fluid. Flow cytometry serves a variety of uses, from cell counting and biomarker detection to protein engineering. This laser-based technique has helped scientists diagnose immunodeficiencies over the past decade, though its applications range from marine biology to pathology.

Primary Cell Industry Continues Upward Trend

Written by Olivia Lowden on Oct 26, 2022 9:00:00 AM

Primary-Cells

The cell is one of the most basic units of life. While some cells are organisms in their entirety, like the microscopic amoeba, others only function as part of larger organisms – like the cells that make up our hair, brain, and skin. Cells are the building blocks of life, the very fiber of our existence, and can tell us a huge amount about human physiology. Because of their high physiological relevance, primary cells represent a promising sector of the market. Primary cells paint an accurate picture of how a human might respond to a certain drug or process. They are isolated directly from living human tissue, as opposed to manufactured cell lines, which are drawn from the already isolated primary cell culture.

Whether you refer to it as The Big C, a malignant neoplasm, or its simpler name; cancer, we all know what it is and have all heard and seen the detrimental effect it has on those fighting and living with it every day. With a devastating mortality rate and a plethora of heart-breaking films, podcasts, and charities to remind us why research is so fundamental, cancer is one disease we can’t seem to sweep under the rug. According to Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C) UK, one in two of us will get cancer in our lifetime which, as a harrowing statistic in itself, means that funding cancer research and the development of potential cures is vital.
