In February 2001, scientists celebrated the initial sequencing of the human genome by two competing groups. Now, not one but two draft human proteomes form the next logical link in a chain.

Fields & Applications Proteomics

Parallel Proteomes

| Stephanie Sutton

While Bernard Kuster and his colleagues were compiling ProteomicsDB, a separate team of researchers at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA, and the Institute of Bioinformatics, Bangalore, India, tackled the challenge in a different way

Fields & Applications Clinical

Crafty Diagnostics

| Rich Whitworth

Could a simple flower-shaped paper-based assay be the answer to an undiagnosed hepatitis C pandemic?

Techniques & Tools Micro/Nano-scale

From Diagnostics to BiognostiX

| Rich Whitworth

Teams in the UK, Finland, Spain, Switzerland and Italy join forces to tackle microfluidic-based assay development

Fields & Applications Food, Beverage & Agriculture

Micro GC Robots for Farmers

| Stephanie Sutton

Taking gas chromatography into the field has the potential to detect crop disease sooner

Fields & Applications


| Nick Kim

Nick Kim gifts us with his very analytical and amusing view of the world around us.

Techniques & Tools Technology

Command the Box

| Bill Anderson

Surely, we’ve gone beyond thinking outside the box – the time has come to tell the box to respond to our thoughts.

Fields & Applications Data Analysis

Targeting the Untargeted

| John A. McLean

Our capacity to generate data is unsurpassed, but how do we cope with the data deluge? It’s time to embrace data-driven discovery in biology and medicine.

Techniques & Tools Pharma & Biopharma

Analytical Asset Management

| Ben Potenza

The promise of cash generated from idle and surplus equipment sounds great. But how can you turn theoretical gains into practical benefits?

Techniques & Tools

Flipping the Analytical Chemistry Classroom

| Christopher Harrison

With so many modern teaching tools at our fingertips, shouldn’t we be making more of the time we spend with our students? I decided to “flip” my classroom in an attempt to answer that question.

Techniques & Tools Mass Spectrometry

Building Mass Spectrometry from the Inside

| Ian Jardine

The development of mass spectrometry is one of science’s great technology stories.

Harnessing 2D-LC for Big Pharma

| Cadapakam J. Venkatramani

Over 10 years ago, the potential of two-dimensional liquid chromatography seemed obvious to me – so I built a system and never looked back.

Fields & Applications Sample Preparation

Differentiation and characterization of subvisible particulates in therapeutic protein products

This application note provides an example of how Archimedes can be used to detect and quantify the formation of protein sub-visible particles and the introduction of silicone oil droplets, in response to shear stress.
