The renowned Innovative Technology Centre (ITC) at the University of Cambridge, UK has used a Uniqsis PhotoSyn flow photoreactor to efficiently scale-up a radical mediated boronic acid coupling under photoredox conditions using a novel organic acridium-based photocatalyst. The acridium-based organic photocatalyst, developed by the University of Cambridge, is demonstrated to be an efficient replacement for […]Continue Reading ...
Aneurysms form as abnormal bulges or balloonings over an artery, and, if ruptured, can lead to serious health complications or even death. Some aneurysms can exist for a long time without rupturing, and the surgery involved in treating aneurysms can be quite risky, so a parameter to help guide surgeons is needed. Today, treatment decisions […]Continue Reading ...
Mar 29 2019 BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), a leading global medical technology company, today announced the CE-IVD certification for the BD FACSDuet™ automated flow cytometry system. The new fully automated sample preparation instrument enables clinical laboratories to improve their efficiency by reducing errors and limiting the manual user interactions required to run assays on […]Continue Reading ...
Mar 6 2019 Postnova Analytics Inc. reports how its Electrical Asymmetrical Flow Field Flow Fractionation (EAF4) and Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC) modules have been used to determine the physicochemical and biophysical attributes of monoclonal antibodies. EAF4 technology uniquely combines the principle of Electrical and Asymmetrical Field Flow Fractionation in just one system. In a Postnova […]Continue Reading ...
More than 40 billion capillaries — tiny, hair-like blood vessels — are tasked with carrying oxygen and nutrients to the far reaches of the human body. But despite their sheer number and monumental importance to basic functions and metabolism, not much is known about their inner workings. Now a Northwestern University team has developed a […]Continue Reading ...
Jan 7 2019 Company Ramping up Production to Meet Increasing Global Demand Cytek Biosciences Inc., the preeminent provider of innovative flow cytometry solutions, has marked a significant milestone: the company has shipped 100 of its advanced flow cytometry systems.

Atherosclerotic disease, the slow and silent hardening and narrowing of the arteries, is a leading cause of mortality worldwide. It is responsible for more than 15 million deaths each year, including an estimated 610,000 people in the United States. In the current issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a team of […]Continue Reading ...
Facial massaging using a roller can increase skin blood flow for more than ten minutes after the massage. It can also improve vasodilation — the widening of blood vessels, — in the long-term, according to a study by researchers in Japan. Beauty experts rave about them, and millions of us buy them, but what do […]Continue Reading ...
