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 ...
Deep learning and convolutional neural networks in microscopy
The advent of accessible, easy-to-use high-content screening systems has brought many benefits to life science. However, this increased access to large amounts of images also brings challenges, for example relating to data processing, statistical analysis and automation. Addressing these ...
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.
Data governance as a strategy for value-added data and digitalization in the laboratory
In the field of data analytics and machine learning, data quality and the “right” data architectures are the key to success. Data governance enables organizations to establish important elements and processes for generating value-added information from data.
A catalyst with high selectivity for converting organolithium compounds
For the first time, an efficient catalyst for palladium-catalyzed C–C bonding between aryl chlorides and alkyl lithium compounds has been found. This reaction enables simpler synthesis routes for important products, such as pharmaceuticals, while avoiding much salt waste.
Surface-imprinted hybrid materials for the selective detection of viruses
Thanks to technological advances in polymer chemistry and nanotechnology, it is now possible to synthetically produce nanomaterials with a wide range of properties and functionalities. This has paved the way for producing bio-inspired structures and systems which, for example, possess binding ...
