UCSD Scientists Discover a Person’s Skin Microbiome May Make Some Individuals More Attractive to Biting Insects than Others

Research could lead to clinical laboratory tests in service of precision medicine therapies to reduce a person’s susceptibility to being targeted by blood-sucking insects Ever wonder why some people attract mosquitoes while others do not? Could biting insects pick their victims by smell? Scientists in California believe the answers to these questions could lead to new precision medicine therapies and clinical laboratory tests. The research revealed evidence that some blood-sucking insects may...

ProteomeTools Researchers Announces Milestone Creation of 330,000-Peptide Human Proteome and Creating Resource for Developing New Medical Laboratory Tests

Project should provide treasure-trove of molecular information on human protein and lead to development of new biomarkers for use in clinical laboratory tests and personalized medicine Human proteins provide clinical laboratories and anatomic pathology groups with a rich source of biomarkers used in medical tests and personalized medicine. Pathologists, therefore, should take note of a major milestone achieved by researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) that moves science...

Meet the Clinical Pathology Laboratory on the Palm of a Hand: Japanese Researchers Announce a Point-of-Care Testing Device That Detects MicroRNA in 20 Minutes

Second-generation device is self-powered, does not require a trained operator, and amplifies the fluorescence signal by 1,000-fold, enabling early detection of cancer Pathologists will be interested to learn that Japanese researchers have developed a second-generation lab-on-a-chip that detects microRNA (miRNA) from a tiny sample volume in only 20 minutes! Their goal is to create a point-of-care device for early detection of cancer. This is another example of how a variety of fast-developing...

Super-Fast Microscope Captures Circulating Tumor Cells with High Sensitivity and Resolution in Real Time

Pathology groups and clinical labs could use the world’s fastest camera to diagnose cancer at earlier stages There’s a new optical microscope that can detect rogue cancer cells. It was developed by engineers at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). The achievement could create new diagnostic capabilities for pathology and clinical laboratory medicine. New Instrument Detects Circulating Tumor Cells The target for this new high-speed microscope are Circulating cancer tumor cells...
