Cellular reprogramming, the conversion of adult cells to induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), has become embedded in the scientist’s toolkit and the likelihood of developing human disease models of high predictive utility has dramatically increased. Several challenges still remain in the development of high quality iPSC banks.

Research laboratories make use of some of the world’s most technologically advanced equipment, and can be amongst the most dynamic and exciting places to work. However, the complexity of research tools coupled with the frequent use of hazardous and infectious materials can make the lab a potentially dangerous place.
In this article Todd Sasser Ph.D., Field Applications Scientist at Bruker Preclinical Imaging, talks about developments in optical preclinical imaging systems and assess the current ‘state of the art’ in the field.
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is a powerful technique for detecting changes in protein structure that can impact the safety and efficacy of drug products. In this article we focus on its efficiency for comparing changes in the higher order structure of proteins caused by external stresses such as oxidation.
Using the Agile approach to software development can increase project success threefold as compared to traditional methods. So what is the Agile approach? It is an iterative approach to software development in which the requirements and solution evolve through continuous collaboration of cross-functional teams.
