A new General Chapter addresses balances for analytical purposes
Weighing is one of the key activities carried out in every quality control (QC) laboratory. Usually it is one of the first steps in a whole analysis chain, e.g. when a sample or a standard is prepared for subsequent dilution and HPLC or qNMR analysis.
Chip-based tissue and organ systems for personalized medicine
The aim of personalized medicine (or precision medicine) is to take patients’ personal features into consideration as much as possible for their medical treatment, thereby going beyond the functional diagnosis of the disease. A promising concept that is gaining ever more attention and showing ...
Ensuring comparability of clinical results is important in the age of globalization
World Metrology Day is celebrated annually on the 20th of May and this year’s focus on health provides an opportunity to emphasize the importance of comparable and reliable measurement results in laboratory medicine.
The future of health diagnostics begins at the level of the individual cell
The cell is the basic unit of our body – and key to understanding the biology of good health, as well as how molecular dysfunction leads to disease. Yet our understanding of the hundreds of cell types and subtypes in the human body is still very limited and often based on techniques with ...
Workplace and process optimization using 5S as the basis for safety in the lab
Holistic management systems such as Total Quality Management (TQM) and Lean Management aim to achieve the greatest possible added value for the customer while sustainably eliminating waste. The often underrated 5S method can provide the basis for creating a workplace organization that goes hand ...
Animal poisons as a bioresource for new drugs
More than 200,000 animal species produce poison to defend themselves against predators or to kill their prey. These poisons are usually complex mixtures of different toxins that have been functionally optimized over the course of evolution. For this reason, animal poisons are also a valuable ...
Synthetic biotechnology as a tool to create a sustainable, circular economy
Anthropogenic climate change and the rising world population, in combination with increasing urbanization, poses global challenges to our societies that can only be solved by technological advancement. The direct biotechnological use of greenhouse gases, including residual biomass flows from ...
AI-based methods for classifying individual blood cells
For a long time, doctors have been diagnosing disorders of the body’s hematopoietic system using a light microscope. The analysis of individual blood cells is largely performed manually. Now, artificial intelligence can lend them a digital hand.
Analytics and multivariate data analysis of coffee phenols
Chlorogenic acids (CGAs) are, by definition, esters formed from hydroxycinnamic acids and quinic acid. As such, they are produced by almost all plant species as secondary metabolites. In our diet, we take up substantial amounts of this class of compounds – around 1 g per day, in extreme cases ...
Immune-responsive human tissue models for the development of immunomodulatory drugs
Innate immunity is a central component of the human immune defense. Pattern recognition receptors (PRRs), such as the toll-like receptors (TLRs), play a key role in this system. They are omnipresent in nature and found in plants, insects, vertebrates and human beings.
