Clever biomolecular labelling enables identification of immune cells

Biomolecules regulate the biological functions inside every living cell. If scientists can understand the molecular mechanisms of such functions, then it is possible to detect the severe dysfunction which can lead to illness. At a molecular level, this can be achieved with fluorescent markers that are specifically incorporated into the respective biomolecules. In the past,… Read More »

IvfOPEN: Advanced Egg, Sperm, And Embryo Identification For A Safer IVF Industry.

Earlier this month, a group of leaders from the world’s in vitro fertilization (IVF) community and a group of engineers from IBM convened a virtual meeting to discuss safety; in particular, the need to reduce misidentification of IVF specimens to zero using a solution called ivfOPEN.  To place the importance of effective specimen identification into… Read More »
