- Self-disposing supramolecular materials with a tunable lifetime
Materials that assemble themselves and then simply disappear at the end of their lifetime are quite common in nature. Researchers at the Technical University Munich (TUM) have now successfully developed supramolecular materials that disintegrate at a predetermined time - a feature that could be u...
- Introducing nano antibodies into living cells
Scientists at the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Ludwig Maximilians University (LMU) Munich and the Leibniz Institute for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP) have managed to introduce tiny antibodies into living cells.
Antibodies are one of the main weapons of our immune system. They dock to virus...
- Measuring the half-life of RNA molecules
RNA molecules are individual transcripts of the cell's DNA. They transfer the genetic information of the DNA and provide a template for the production of proteins that regulate all the cell's processes. The small carriers of information are themselves regulated throughout their lifespan, or rathe...
- Reviewing safety of glutamates added to food
EFSA has established a safe intake level for glutamic acid and glutamates used as food additives after re-evaluating their safety. The Authority also concluded that estimated dietary exposure to glutamic acid and glutamates may exceed not only the safe level but also doses associated with adverse...
- Study paves the way to investigate nano-machines in action
A team of scientists has used microwaves to unravel the exact structure of a tiny molecular motor. The nano-machine consists of just a single molecule, made up of 27 carbon and 20 hydrogen atoms (C27H20). Like a macroscopic motor it has a stator and a rotor, connected by an axle. The analysis rev...
- Safe Evaporation Under Inert Atmosphere
Genevac announce HT Series 3 evaporators with Inert Gas Purge (IGP) option enable safe operation even when removing highly explosive solvents such as diethyl ether.
To eliminate these risks, the IGP system purges the air from the HT Series 3
- Sustained Episomal Gene Expression Free from Foreign DNA
AMSBIO announces MC-Easy™ minicircle technology for labs looking to produce sustained transgene expression in model animal generation and gene therapy research without the risks of introducing exogenous DNA.
Minicircles are circular DNA elements that
- Beam Compressor for Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer
Optical Surfaces Ltd. has been selected by the Magdalena Ridge Observatory (Socorro, New Mexico, USA) to produce an ultra-stable 7.5x off-axis beam compressor that will form a key beam transfer element in the facility's optical interferometer.
- Circular Dichroism Measurement in Microplates
Porvair Sciences introduces new black Krystal UV Quartz bottomed microplates that offer excellent optical transmission in the wavelength range 185nm to 1100nm making them ideal for labs looking to make Circular Dichroism (CD) measurements.
- Filtration System Improves Quality of Paints & Coatings
Amazon Filters reports that its SupaClean filtration system is being installed by paints and coatings manufacturers prior to filling lines to remove impurities such as skins, coagulants and undispersed pigments from their final product.
