The Scientist Proudly Announces the Top 10 Innovations of 2012
Date:12/3/2012

New York, NY (PRWEB) December 03, 2012

The Scientist announced today the winners of its 5th annual Top 10 Innovations competition. Continuing its mission of “Exploring Life, Inspiring Innovation,” The Scientist invited members of the life science community to submit descriptions of technological advances that made a direct impact on research in 2012. We assigned a panel of expert judges the difficult task of evaluating and ranking these technologies, techniques, or tools.

Biochemist Vicki Chandler of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Science Program, Gabriel Popescu of the University of Illinois, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Steven Wiley, and Northwestern University's Andrew Mazar evaluated more than 45 qualified entries in this year's Top 10 Innovations competition and narrowed the impressive field to the10 best.

Taking top prizes this year are a company that offers syn bio à la carte at fast-food prices; two different DNA sequencing machines; stem cells made to order; two high-tech cell culture and imaging systems; photo-morpholinos; a new luminescent reporter protein; an extremely versatile digital camera; and a killer organize-your-lab app.

“With The Scientist’s fifth installment of our annual Top 10 Innovations competition we refocus on the core meaning of ‘innovation’—to whit: a new idea, method, or device, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary. And this year’s crop of winning products delivers on this simple definition.”
—Bob Grant, Senior Editor, The Scientist
