The Cure For Your Biobanking Informatics Challenges: Illustrating Benefits Of Integrating Comprehensive Solutions For Biobanks By Todd Jones, Shawn Toffolo, S. Doug Holbrook, et al, Thermo Fisher Scientific
Modern biobanks are facing enormous challenges as the need for collecting biological samples and providing access to researchers is increasing every day. And because biobanks store the precious biological materials that make medical and disease research possible, it is becoming more critical that the methods of storing and accessing this information not only become more efficient and cost effective, but also foster collaboration and decision making.
Advice For Biotech Start-Ups From Someone Who’s Been There By Fred Olds, contributing editor, Life Science Leader magazine
Getting venture capital to fund a biotech start-up is not difficult if you have good data. Larry Lasky, Ph.D., discusses the state of biotech, venture capital, and offers advice on approaching the start-up process.

Spotlight On Laboratory Automation
Transgenic Animals In Preclinical Safety Testing Transgenic and genetically modified animals are being increasingly used in the study of diseases, safety assessments of new compounds, and they are powerful tools for understanding how specific genes play in biological pathways.
Using Single-Use Tubes In A Biorepository Many hospitals and research institutes are accumulating large collections of biological samples, together with associated medical and life style data, as a resource for biochemical research. Typically, the objective is to better understand the causes of disease and treatment response.
A Tool For Measuring Liquid Mixing Efficacy In Microplates You wouldn’t bake a cake without mixing the ingredients first, yet, when important assays are being conducted the liquids dispensed into a microplate are often assumed to have been mixed through simple diffusion or after only a cursory agitation of the plate.
Selecting The Appropriate Laboratory The downloads include the methods that are used to perform the Bradford Assay on the GX-241 Liquid Handler and GX-274 ASPEC as shown in this application note.
