When conducting any experiment involving cell culture work, it is imperative to know and understand the overall health-status of the cell population before any treatment protocols are implemented. As you begin your experiment, make sure to consider the following questions: 1. What are my cells exposed to? Exposure to biological or chemical compounds can… Read more »
Believe it or not, cell death is good for you! That’s the message we brought with us to the Social Science event at the Science Museum of Minnesota last night. We spent the evening with some enthusiastic science-minded Minnesotans discussing programmed cell death in nature. Visitors to the museum were excited to learn how apoptosis… Read more »
Immunoassays are easy to run, but the path to develop these tests can be tricky. To make your own reliable, sensitive, and specific ELISA tests requires knowledge of immunology and protein chemistry, not to mention an understanding of all the different components of the test (buffers, stabilizers, stop solutions, diluents, and more). To optimize your… Read more »
