Better Outcomes for Young Women Surviving Cancer

Reproductive health is not the same as sex ed,” Teresa K. Woodruff, PhD, from the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, reminded us in yesterday’s plenary session, “Oncofertility: From Bench to Bedside to Babies.” The war on cancer has been hard fought, with more young women than ever now surviving cancer but being faced with the possibility of infertility.

New Psychoactive Substances Challenge Detection

Anyone who walked into Monday’s morning symposium, “Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS) in Emergency Toxicology” thinking that NPS are not a growing threat to public health were quickly disavowed of that notion. Speakers Jennifer Colby, PhD, and Kai Li, MD, described various compounds, including the drug U-47700, which is a synthetic super-opioid that causes extreme euphoria and respiratory depression, frequently leading to adverse effects, including death.

Is Laboratory Medicine Ready for Artificial Intelligence?

Some say that the invention of the abacus more than 2,500 years ago was the first step on the long road to artificial intelligence (AI). The reason why this simple calculator made of beads and wires is often called the precursor to the modern computer is because the principle—performing repeated calculations faster than the human brain—is the same. Now scientists are harnessing the speed of modern computers and programming them with cognitive algorithms and sophisticated decision trees to help solve complex medical problems. This rapidly advancing science was the focus yesterday of the Chair’s Invited Session, “Is Artificial Intelligence in…

Young Laboratorians Discover Path to Leadership

The path from junior laboratory scientist to senior scientist or director can be daunting. Though a good foundation in scientific knowledge and increasing experience in the day-to-day challenges of the clinical lab help get us there, not many laboratorians have a PhD in leadership. While leadership may not initially seem critical early in your career, seizing opportunities for growth and influence early on can help us be recognized as leaders long before an official title confers it.

The NEFA assay from Wako Diagnostics is designed to detect a variety of non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA). The test is specific to free fatty acids with minimal interferences from other related compounds and serum components such as bilirubin, hemoglobin, and ascorbic acid. The need for an extraction step has been eliminated. The company’s enzymatic method relies upon the acylation of coenzyme A and ultimately results in a purple colored product that can be measured colorimetrically at 550 nm.

Guinea Pig Monoclonal Antibodies : A New Promising Tool for R&D, IVD and Therapeutics

Monoclonal antibodies development has been limited for a long time to only two species : mice and rats. However, the immune systems of mice and rats are not the most suitable in terms of humoral response to certain antigens, such as human antigens like glucagon. Indeed, the protein sequence of glucagon is the same in mice, rats and human (fig. 1). Small not immunogenic antigens, such as antibiotics or toxins, generally failed to trigger an immune response in such species. This is why some companies have developed fusion cell lines to generate monoclonal antibodies in rabbit (Abcam-Epitomics) or in sheep…

New Products for Liquid Biopsy Applications

Liquid biopsy is a new technology for detection and analysis of biomarkers in blood or other body fluids without the need of invasive procedures. One important analyte is cell-free circulating DNA (cfDNA). The main challenges in working with cfDNA are the low concentration (1 - 50 ng/ml) and the high degree of fragmentation of cfDNA (< 500 bp). An additional complication is that the circulating tumor DNA only accounts for up to 20 % of the total cfDNA. Therefore processing higher sample volumes, typically in the range of several milliliters, is required.

Clippard NPV Dual Tube Miniature Solenoid Pinch Valves

Clippard NPV Series Miniature Pinch Valves are solenoid-operated devices designed to open and close tubes for controlling flow of liquids and gases. Other valve types have internal passages that may cause small amounts of fluid to remain in the valve. Pinch valves have no areas or dead volume where fluid can become trapped. Only the inside of the tubing contacts the fluid. Energizing the solenoid retracts or attracts the plunger, which opens or closes the tube. De-energizing the solenoid will allow the plunger to return to its original state.
