  • AFM Tips from the Microwave

    Scientists from the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena (Germany) were successful in improving a fabrication process for Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) probe tips. Atomic Force Microscopy is able to scan surfaces so that even tiniest nano structures become visible. Knowledge about these structures is more

  • Cell phones that protect against deadly chemicals? Why not?

    Do you carry a cell phone? Today, chances are it's called a "smartphone" and it came with a three-to-five megapixel lens built-in—not to mention an MP3 player, GPS or even a bar code scanner. This 'Swiss-Army-knife' trend represents the natural progression of technology—as chips become smaller/more more

  • Sniffing out terrorists

    A new intelligent system has been developed to help identify terrorists carrying explosives. Sensitive electronic noses capture the smell of the explosives; the system processes the acquired data, correlates it with individuals’ movements … and ultimately tracks down the suspects. Literally hundred more

  • Polyether-Modified Silicones for Cosmetic Applications

    Polyether-modified silicones have a long history of use in the personal care industry as emulsifiers and dispersants, as well as stabilizers for water-in-oil systems. However, because of their external phase type, water-in-oil systems tend to display poor aesthetics, such as greasiness, tackiness and slow absorption. A new polyether-modified silicone, PEG/PPG-19/19 dimethicone (and) C13-16 isoparaffin (and) C10-13 isoparaffin, was evaluated for its potential to aid in the production of stable water-in-silicone and water-in-oil formulations with unique textures and enhanced aesthetics. Various oil phases were studied, including silicone oils, organic oils, and a combination of both. Results of the evaluations demonstrate the versatility of the new material, and prototype formulations illustrate its broad utility more

  • Analysis of the DNA Methylation Patterns at the BRCA1 CpG Island

    Germ-line alterations of the BRCA1 gene confer a lifetime risk of 40% for ovarian cancers and of 40%-80% for ­breast cancers. It is likely that BRCA1 acts as a tumor suppressor gene. BRCA1 involvement in breast cancers does not seem to be restricted to familial cancers. Despite the absence of somatic mutations in the breast tissues, a down regulation of BRCA1 expression is associated with malignancy in human sporadic breast cancers. more

  • Real-Time PCR Quality Control for Gene Expression

    Quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) has become the de facto standard for nucleic acid quantification. This achievement is due in large part to its sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, large dynamic range of linear quantification, and its speed. The qPCR technology has matured to a ready-to-use commonly available method in most molecular biology laboratories. Nevertheless, the reliability of the final quantification result depends heavily on all elements in the workflow, such as the quality of the input template (integrity and absence of inhibitors), the PCR assay (specificity, efficiency, limit of detection), and normalization strategy (validated reference genes). more
