One-step RT-qPCR–based applications are increasingly being used in life science research to quickly quantify genes of interest directly from many RNA samples simultaneously
Bio-Rad’s iQ-Check real-time PCR test kits were selected based on their proven real-time PCR technology
New technique can reveal previously undetectable bacteria in places where they aren't wanted
A technician’s time and energy is still spent on the slow and tedious sample preparation steps prior to analysis
A 2014 survey of 200 fields in 22 South Dakota counties showed that approximately 30 fields in 18 counties had signs of sudden death syndrome
Agricultural officials who seek to detect diseases affecting the commercial swine industry may gain a new ally — a biological detection system developed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers.
He calls himself the bug hunter, but the target of his work consists of viruses that can only be found and identified with special methods and instruments. Benjamin Hause, an assistant research professor at the Kansas State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at Kansas State University, recently published an article about one of his discoveries, porcine enterovirus G, which is an important find in the United States.
New York is on the front lines of detecting foodborne pathogen outbreaks, thanks to a partnership between public health scientists and Cornell researchers.
Researchers have developed a system that concentrates foodborne salmonella and other pathogens faster than conventional methods by using hollow thread-like fibers that filter out the cells, representing a potential new tool for speedier detection.
