Instruments that can capture the covert processes within cells are bringing laboratory research into much sharper focus, writes Louisa Hearn.
We have launched the first issue in a new series of web magazines.
Female scientists have been hitting back at Nobel Prize winner Tim Hunt this week after he made sexist remarks while speaking at a conference in South Korea.
Emerson Process Management’s Robert Ferris looks at the challenges faced by nanomaterials providers when ensuring product quality.
As breakthroughs in medical diagnostics bring earlier and more accurate diagnosis, we’re seeing patients benefiting from faster access to treatment, says Randox quality control manager David Hunter.
A quality assurance protocol based on dynamic powder testing has proven successful for identifying powder coatings that will perform well in electrostatic spraying applications, says Freeman Technology operations director Jamie Clayton.
Pre-rinsing is a fast, easy way to increase accuracy by up to 0.2%. Why? It helps neutralise the capillary effect in micro-volume pipettes, and for larger volume tips, equalises the temperature of the air inside the tip with the temperature of the sample.
Immersing the tip to the correct depth will improve your accuracy by up to 5%. Immersing the tip too deeply can cause too much liquid to be aspirated and create bubbles. Conversely, positioning the tip too close to the surface can aspirate air.
A whitepaper published by Retsch Technology looks at the advantages and drawbacks of three common particle size analysis techniques, their comparability among each other as well as detailed application examples.
WHEATON is offering a white paper that reviews the standard available formats for high-throughput plate systems, as well as the uniquely designed solutions that mitigate the risk of cross contamination and allow for better process flow integration.
