University of Texas Researchers Develop New Techniques in Genetic Testing to Improve Clinical Laboratory Results through RNA

Innovative technological advances could potentially provide clinical laboratories, pathology groups, and medical researchers with improved methodologies for designing, performing, and analyzing lab tests that use genetic information Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) have developed an innovative new enzyme that promises to improve the methods and tools used by pathology groups and clinical laboratories when conducting genetic testing. The enzyme enables the...

Swiss Researchers Use New Mass Spectrometry Technique to Obtain Protein Data, Create Strategy That Could Lead to Clinical Laboratory Advances in Personalized Medicine

Researchers believe they have begun to crack open a ‘black box’ involving the genomes and diseases of individual patients Researchers in Switzerland are developing a new way to use mass spectrometry to explain why patients respond differently to specific therapies. The method potentially could become a useful tool for clinical laboratories that want to support the practice of precision medicine. It is also one more example of how mass spectrometry is being used by researchers to develop new...
