cells. One reason researchers would use this assay is to mimic cancer metastases and gain more knowledge about the factors that control that process. Prostate cancer cells, for example, tend to move to bone marrow, while breast cancer cells tend to move to the liver and lungs.
On the flip side, the cell migration assay also could prove to be valuable in healing wounds if researchers......Full article >>>
o human) diseases.
The Platypus antibody assay requires the use of only one (liquid crystal) reagent - a substance used to bring about a chemical change - and allows researchers to image the anti-bodies on the assay's surface. In contrast, ELISA sometimes requires the use of specific secondary reagents for various species - reagents that are more expensive and, depending on the species, n......Full article >>>
t helps researchers study chemical reactions with the help of nano-structured surfaces, but Jim Leonhart, executive vice president of the Wisconsin Biotechnology and Medical Device Association
, views Platypus as more of a pathfinder.
Leonhart said the company's evolution is a model for early-growth Wisconsin life science companies. He noted th......Full article >>>
