Rapid mass-screening diagnostic test for COVID-19

The COVID-19 crisis has challenged traditional timelines for everything from vaccine manufacture and clinical trials to diagnostics development. In a joint project from Stream Bio and MIP Diagnostics Ltd, a superior rapid diagnostic and associated mass screening test can be developed with an estimated timeline of just 11 weeks. It has the potential to reduce …

overhead illumination effect on phototoxicity of living cells

How to minimize phototoxicity in fluorescence live cell imaging?

Although it is a well-known fact that the fluorescence process can cause phototoxicity to living cells – it sometimes seems that this problem does not always get enough attention in planning biological experiments. What is the best way to minimize the phototoxicity and still maintain images with high enough signal-to-noise? Should we minimize the exposure time and …
