App Note: 3D neurotoxicity assays for compound screening

Learn about a high-content assay for morphological characterization of neuronal development in a 3D matrix using human iPSC-derived neuronal cultures. Development of more complex, biologically relevant, and predictive cell-based assays for compound screening is a primary challenge in drug discovery. The development and integration of three-dimensional (3D) assay models are becoming more popular to drive…

New research paper on loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) for the diagnosis of malaria

I came across this article today: “Performance of loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) for the diagnosis of malaria among malaria suspected pregnant women in Northwest Ethiopia.”  Malaria Journal, 201716:34. Once again, LAMP demonstrates that it beats many methods for sensitivity and ease of use when one is looking for a point-of-care technique to detect pathogens, whether they…
