Single-nucleus RNA sequencing, Droplet by Droplet

September 4, 2017

Image Credit : Susanna M. Hamilton, Broad Communications Last year Broad researchers described a single-nucleus RNA sequencing method called sNuc-Seq. This system enabled researchers to study the gene expression profiles of [more...]

Miniature Technology, Big Hope for Disease Detection

July 16, 2017

The field of medicine is always on the lookout for better disease diagnostic tools—simpler, faster, and cheaper technologies to enhance patient treatment and outcomes. Currently, microfluidic bioassay devices are the preferred diagnostic [more...]

Microfluidics for Single Cell Analysis of CTCs

July 16, 2017

In a move away from the previous belief that cell populations are homogeneous and display identical molecular characteristics, increasingly scientists are turning their attention to the study of single cells and the differences between [more...]

Reproducing a Retinal Disease on a Chip

June 24, 2017

Approximately 80% of all sensory input is received via the eyes, so suffering from chronic retinal diseases that lead to blindness causes a significant decrease in the quality of life (QOL). And because retinal diseases are most common [more...]

Instrument Development Enables Planetary Exploration

June 24, 2017

This laser-interrogated microfluidic chip (10 centimeters in diameter) is one of the new planetary instrument technologies that NASA and other space agencies are developing to search for chemical indicators of life on other worlds. In this [more...]
