Single Technologies is working on a new sequencing platform with faster imaging and smaller flow cells that will harness existing chemistries.

Called Theta, Single Technologies' platform relies on automated fluidics and single molecule-sensitive imaging to improve sequencing throughput.

Investigators analyzed the expression of protein-coding genes in 18 blood immune cell populations, comparing the expression profiles with those in other cell and tissue types.

A team of Swedish researchers has received $3.3 million to develop a new nanotechnology platform for detecting blood-borne markers in lung and breast cancer.

The study found eight potential protein biomarkers differentially expressed in elderly Alzheimer's disease patients, and researchers are planning an expanded study.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A consortium of European research institutions and private partners will use €5.3 million ($7.4 million) in funding to develop a microfluidics-based lab-on-a-chip device to identify and measure the concentration of circulating tumor cells in blood, one of the partners,

While many countries are cutting back on funding for life science research, Sweden is not one of them, as the Northern European country's Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt this week confirmed that his government intends to invest $320 million in life sciences over the next four ye

As part of the deal, KTH will also serve as a reference site for Arrayjet, and the two organizations will work together on publications and technology development.

When most people think of the array market, they might think of the whole-genome genotyping chips sold by firms like Affymetrix and Illumina. But for providers of array slides, printers, and scanners, the market increasingly is in protein chips, and business is good.
