Quality in the Laboratory

Quality is of extreme importance for labs. However, it is often seen as the responsibility of the quality manager and its importance and impact on your own work is not always well understood. In this webinar, Peter Kootstra will reinforce how quality can improve your performance and your work satisfaction.

Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Laser-guided fruit flies: Thermal control

The movements and behaviour of fruit flies, genetically engineered to carry a heat-sensitive ion channel, can be controlled with a precisely aimed infrared laser. The fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, is widely used as a model organism for biological and biomedical research and so such puppetry should allow the species to be studied more easily than ever before.

Two seconds here could save you months in the lab by using Wiley's Compound Search tool. Check the database coverage now... it's free!         We understand that you don't have time to wade through thousands of results. Compound Search's sole purpose is to tell you whether a compound appears in a specific database so that you'll know whether that database meets your needs. To speed this up, we provide exact structure matches only. Compound Search enables users to perform...

Bacterial phenotypic diversity of cultures of Staphylococcus aureus grown under variable sets of environmental conditions was characterized by FTIR spectroscopy, using different spectral preprocessing methods in combination with scaling methods in principal component analysis.

Fourier transform mid-infrared photoacoustic spectroscopy was used to quantify protein content of rapeseed with interval selection data processing models providing accurate results.

Researchers in the USA have developed a way to use mid-infrared quantum cascade laser spectroscopy to measure blood glucose through one's skin. If they can successfully miniaturise the system it could be a boon for people with diabetes who otherwise have to regularly prick their skin to obtain a blood sample for testing.

Protein Science, the flagship journal of The Protein Society, serves an international forum for publishing original reports on all scientific aspects of protein molecules. The Journal publishes papers by leading scientists from all over the world that report on advances in the understanding of proteins in the broadest sense. Protein Science aims to unify this field by cutting across established disciplinary lines and focusing on “protein-centered” science.
