Dutch researchers have grown their own kidney tubules derived from human kidney adult stem cells and urine cells in microfluidic chips.
A newly developed biophotonic system makes it possible to detect, in a non-invasive way and with a very small sample of blood, allergies to antibiotics in less than an hour.
Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) introduces its rhAmpSeq targeted sequencing system, providing researchers with easy-to-use amplicon sequencing on Illumina next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms.
Lonza has expanded its hepatocytes portfolio characterisation with the addition of Verified for Spheroids Human Hepatocytes, which are pre-screened for their ability to promote rapid spheroid formation in cell culture.
An important but commonly overlooked aspect of image-based assay design for high content analysis (HCA) is the use of appropriate controls.
A new screening technique for non-small-cell lung cancer helps assess whether immune checkpoint inhibitors would be a suitable treatment method for individual patients.
Lonza has launched DonorPlex Hepatocytes, a line of high-quality cryopreserved pooled donor suspension hepatocytes. Researchers within DMPK and ADME laboratories can now benefit from this robust product offering for studying the hepatic metabolism of drugs.
Researchers have developed a sensitive new biosensor that could someday be used to detect foetal Down syndrome DNA in pregnant women's blood.
Nanotechnology researchers have reported a low-cost way of detecting cancer in early stages using a new class of magnetic nanomaterials.
