3D-bioprinting

Bioprinting is a promising technology that offers hope to patients on the notoriously lengthy waiting lists for organ donation. Not unlike additive manufacturing, bioprinting involves 3D printing technology but instead uses organic material. The aim is to imitate natural tissue for a range of applications, including drug discovery, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine.

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.

How can businesses stay ahead in the competitive world of continuous glucose monitoring?

Written by Olivia Lowden on Dec 13, 2022 9:00:00 AM

continuous-glucose-monitoring

Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) track blood sugar levels automatically, 24/7. Unlike traditional monitors, CGMs are minimally invasive, involving tiny sensors under the skin that test for interstitial blood glucose levels every few minutes. This data is usually transmitted straight to a patient’s phone, fitting in with the incumbent era of smart devices.

Emerging technologies in the brain monitoring industry

Written by Katie Biddle on Nov 25, 2022 9:00:00 AM

brain monitoring

Brain monitoring is fundamental in understanding how our brain works and in determining the root cause of neurological disorders and general brain functioning. New-generation brain monitoring technologies continuously record brain activity in a clinic or at a patient's home. These sensor-generated devices are part of an emerging field that will improve disease management and diagnosis for those with conditions such as epilepsy and Alzheimer’s.

What does the future hold for the self-testing kits Industry?

Written by Olivia Lowden on Oct 27, 2022 9:00:00 AM

Self-Testing-Kits

It goes without saying that the pandemic forever changed the face of global self-testing. What was once the reserve of those with specific needs and conditions became an activity that required the dutiful participation of entire nations. The process began: people watched videos on how to swab their nostrils and throats, while others queued for a slot in drive-thru self-test sites. Armed with the science of self-testing kits, the world fought the rise of a lethal virus, and the market for these kits soared.

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.

Pediatric Vaccinations Industry to Grow Despite Vaccine Hesitancy

Written by Olivia Lowden on Oct 11, 2022 9:00:00 AM

pediatric-vaccines

For over two centuries, vaccines have helped to lessen the scourge of numerous life-threatening diseases. Polio, measles, smallpox, and more recently, Covid-19, are some of the major ailments that have been curbed by vaccination. Immunizations save the equivalent of five lives every minute, but their enduring success hangs on one significant factor: widespread uptake.
