UCSD researchers maintain stem cells without contaminated animal feeder layers

...liminating their therapeutic value. While several laboratories have attempted to grow stem cells in alternative cultures, problems have remained. In some cases, human feeder layers were developed but this added another measure of complexity to the culture system, Hayek noted. In recent studies in Wisconsin and M...

Open microfluidic and nanofluidic systems

...a-chip", i.e., integrated chemical and biochemical laboratories shrunk down to the size of a computer chip. An essential prerequisite for such labs are appropriate microcompartments for the confinement of very small amounts of liquids and chemical reagents. Directly accessible surface channels, which can be fabri...

An entropy-based gene selection method for cancer classification using microarray data

...enough to allow diagnosis even in regular clinical laboratories and ideally identify genes involved in cancer-specific regulatory pathways. Here an entropy-based method is proposed that selects genes related to the different cancer classes while at the same time reducing the redundancy among the genes. Results ...

Study of genomic DNA leads to new advances in cancer diagnostics

...is similar to methods commonly used in diagnostics laboratories (such as Pap smears), could be applied to such a purpose. The authors also used flow cytometry to characterize melanomas of varying invasiveness. Further study will be required to determine the specificity and sensitivity of these methods before they...

Chemists identify immune system mechanism for methamphetamine binges

... "ice" and "crank." It is often made in make-shift laboratories using over-the-counter drug ingredients, particularly cold and allergy medicines. Available as a powder or crystal, the drug can be injected, snorted, swallowed and smoked to provide users with a sense of euphoria. Drug effects can last for up to 12 ...

Different microarray systems more alike than previously thought

...between, say, healthy and cancerous tissue. Unless laboratories can rely on each others' results, such findings would not have much value. For the study, 10 laboratories in the Washington, D.C./Baltimore area were given identical samples of RNA -- DNA's cousin -- to ana...
