Images develop clinical applications for new DESI technology
... which is commonly used in biological sciences, to speed
and simplify the time-consuming and labor-intensive analytical process, Ifa said. Mass spectrometry works by first turning molecules into ions, or electrically charged versions of themselves, so they have mass and can be detected and analyzed. The D...
Researchers develop technologies to devour food pathogens
...quipment. "This would be very helpful, as it could speed
up the sterilization process and eliminate the heat energy currently used for such processes." Previous results have shown the gas to be highly effective at killing microbial pathogens. The largest obstacle remaining is optimizing the system to disp...
NHGRI aims to make DNA sequencing faster, more cost effective
... of grant awards totaling more than $13 million to speed
the development of innovative sequencing technologies that reduce the cost of DNA sequencing and expand the use of genomics in medical research and health care. "There has been significant progress over the last several years to develop faster and ...
Breakthrough by MUHC researcher has major implications
...d in 20 percent of LCA patients will significantly speed
up the genetic testing process for blind children. From a therapeutic viewpoint, this discovery adds another pathway for possible therapeutic manipulation and paves the way for a human gene replacement trial of a related LCA gene (RPE65) in early 200...

New study aims to stop sepsis in its tracks
...al major organs. "The goal of this project is to speed
recovery, increase survival rates, and improve the long-term quality of life for those who have had sepsis," said NIGMS Director Jeremy M. Berg, Ph.D. One of the major challenges is to recognize sepsis when it starts. That's because in its early st...
Research could lead to dramatic improvement in scanning for serious diseases
...present instruments do not have the sensitivity or speed
to do this but using the latest research into measurement techniques and data analysis could improve the sensitivity of the machinery by 100 times or more. This could, in turn, allow some images to be recorded 10,000 times faster, or with 10,000 time...
Fire ant-attacking fly spreading rapidly in Texas
...ll the time," says Gilbert, "and now they can help speed
up the spread of phorid flies on purpose by moving ants containing phorid eggs." The new flytraps will help BFL researchers identify where the latest phorid hotspots exist so that landowners can know where to bring fire ants from their property. ...

...sure and high temperature environments are used to speed
the process. Farmers may be able to pre-treat the corn stover themselves, right on their farm. The idea is a new one, but it has tremendous potential. The wet corn stover in silos could provide a great opportunity for producers to add value at t...

of progression of AIDS at least for alcohol users is in part set by past and current drinking very early on in the disease. This tells us that we need to get HIV+ alcohol users into treatment much earlier in order to reduce their alcohol use." Fo...
Crickets on Hawaiian Island develop silent wings in response to parasitic attack
.... "While we were surprised by the extraordinary speed
at which the mutation spread, what is more interesting is that, ordinarily, you would expect such a change in wing morphology to quickly disappear, because males couldn't attract mates," Zuk said. "Instead, the behavior of the flatwings allows them ...
