Manufacturing is the production of products across all industries, on a large-scale, using machinery.
According to researchers from McMaster University and the Montreal Clinical Research Institute, they have identified a “fountain of youth” in a rare genetic marker that is unique to a few French-Canadian families.
Climate change and a growing world population require efficient use of natural resources. Water is a crucial component in food production, and water management strategies are needed to support worldwide changes in food consumption and dietary patterns.
Modern life relies closely on plastics, even though the petroleum-based production creates serious environmental challenges.
Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder are developing a wearable electronic device that's "really wearable"--a stretchy and fully-recyclable circuit board that's inspired by, and sticks onto, human skin.
Researchers from the Universities of Melbourne, York, Warwick and Oxford have shed light on how encapsulated viruses like hepatitis B, dengue and SARS-CoV-2 hijack the protein manufacturing and distribution pathways in the cell - they have also identified a potential broad spectrum anti-viral drug target to stop them in their tracks.
A new food manufacturing company, Nutri V, has been formed by leading vegetable grower Fresh Select and Australia’s national science agency CSIRO.
Gene therapies are being approved for use in Canada but could strain healthcare budgets and exacerbate existing treatment inequities across the country.
A new nanoparticle vaccine candidate developed for the novel coronavirus creates virus-neutralizing antibodies in mice at levels that are 10 times higher than is observed in individuals, who have recovered from the COVID-19 disease.
Dr. Aimee Murray speaks to AZoLifeSciences about her latest research that looks at a way of reducing antibiotic resistance build-up in waterways.
The Multicell PLUS is an exciting addition to the Asynt range of pressure reactors, offering scientists an extremely flexible and customisable device for screening chemical reactions under high pressure conditions.
Researchers from Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), MIT's research enterprise in Singapore, have developed a novel microcarrier for large-scale cell production and expansion that offers higher yield and cost-effectiveness compared to traditional methods, and reduces steps required in the cell retrieval process.
Breast cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer for women around the world, and much effort has been spent in the development of therapies to treat this disease.
A new way of producing an enzyme called fucosyltransferase VI (FTVI) in the lab could help enhance the therapeutic potential of cord blood transplants.
CAR-T biotherapeutics company Carina Biotech and researchers at the University of South Australia have developed a novel approach based on microfluidic technology to "purify" the immune cells of patients in the fight against cancer.
According to current estimates, the amount of data produced by humans and machines is rising at an exponential rate, with the digital universe doubling in size every two years.
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) -- nanometer sized messengers that travel between cells to deliver cues and cargo -- are promising tools for the next generation of therapies for everything from autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases to cancer and tissue injury.
Researchers with the U.S. Army Futures Command are part of a team that tested alternative ways to measure COVID-19 antibody levels, resulting in a process that is faster, easier and less expensive to use on a large scale. Their method holds promise for accurately identifying potential donors who have the best chance of helping infected patients through convalescent plasma therapy.
Cellular therapy is a powerful strategy to produce patient-specific, personalised cells to treat many diseases, including heart disease and neurological disorders. But a major challenge for cell therapy applications is keeping cells alive and well in the lab.
A new research project is aiming to develop a camera-based separation system that can separate plastic waste according to type. The machine will be implemented at plastic recyclers, enabling the manufacturing industry to significantly increase the use of recycled plastics.
A new independent study demonstrates Porvair Sciences proprietary pipette filter tips have greater than 99% Bacterial Filtration Efficiency even at an increased challenge level.
