Celebrating Some of the Greatest Life Scientists of All Time

(DGIwire) – Life science helps us better understand the living world around us. Researchers spend countless hours in the laboratory or bent over desks furiously scribbling what would, to the layman, look like chicken scratch but might be, in reality, the pen marks of genius. Some of them achieve greatness. Here are five of the […]

Check Out the Four Most Extraordinary Science Labs in the World

(DGIwire) — When most of us hear the phrase “science lab,” what comes to mind are images of Bunsen burners and half-dissected frogs in a classroom. These days, however, high-school laboratories have far more advanced technology than your fifth-period chemistry teacher had to drill into you. And on the professional lab front—well, it seems the sky’s […]

Labs: Choose the Right Supplier

(DGIwire) — When looking for quality lab equipment for a medical research laboratory, it’s imperative to have a list of reliable equipment suppliers. In fact, choosing the right supplier is just as important as finding the right equipment. To stay on the cutting edge of science, lab managers need to stay on the front lines […]

Everything the Handsome, Well-Equipped Lab Needs to Stay Red-Hot

(DGIwire)   It’s a competitive world—everything needs an edge these days, including the research lab. If a medical practice or laboratory is looking for quality lab equipment, it is crucial to find the most reliable medical equipment supplier.

In Discovering New Treatments for Disease, Doctors Depend on the Best Equipment

(DGIwire) – Success in treating disease largely depends on the availability and quality of medical tests and tools. At Australia’s Monash University, researchers have patented a quick, inexpensive test to detect early-stage malaria. Malaria is tough to diagnose because only small numbers of immature parasites are present in the bloodstream. Once they mature, the parasites hide […]

How Well-Equipped Labs Advance the Life Sciences

(DGIwire) — Medical schools have a hard job: training the next generation of doctors and medical researchers. Since our lives are in the hands of these folks, we can only hope they’ve been educated and trained using the best technology available. It might be a daunting task for a medical school to ensure that its training […]

The Automated Lab in the New World of 24/7 Research

(DGIwire) — Laboratory automation and the growing role of robotics have transformed the typical workday for many individual scientists. Thanks to the imagination, creativity and hard work of researchers and companies in this field, scientists can set up, run and analyze the results of experiments in a fraction of the time previously required to achieve […]

Putting the Right Equipment into the Right Hands to Save Lives

(DGIwire) — The expression “You’re only as good as your equipment” applies to many areas of life, including scientific advances. One can hardly overestimate the importance of medical technology developers as they smooth the path toward advances in bioscience. Many people are alive today because they were treated with a revolutionary procedure that would not […]

A One-Stop Shop Makes It Less Laborious to Stock Laboratories

(DGIwire) — Modern bioscience research laboratories are faced with many challenges. One of the most important involves keeping up with the latest technology: selecting and ordering new equipment for a laboratory can be a daunting task. Fortunately, there is a relatively easy way to go about ordering equipment, so that researchers can focus their efforts […]

Automating Lab Research Shouldn’t Be Automatic

(DGIwire) — Technology has proved to be a game-changer in most if not all industries. Medical research laboratories are part of this trend, and their managers are fully aware of the advantages of increasing automation. Over the past decade, countless institutions with research facilities have taken the plunge, to various degrees, and for those who […]

What Comes First: The Tools or the Discovery? Certainly the Right Tools Help

 (DGIwire) — Over the last 30 years, advances in medical research technology have come fast and furious. This is especially true for testing equipment used to diagnose or screen for particular conditions prior to treatment. This progress will no doubt continue since clinical laboratory technology plays an integral role in healthcare. One particularly promising area is […]

Improving Stem Cell Research Globally, One Remarkable Tool at a Time

  (DGIwire) — To date, the world’s oldest man and woman were Jiroemon Kimura of Japan, who lived to 116 years, 54 days, and Jeanne Calment of France, who lived to 122 years, 164 days. Few of us will become supercentenarians, but more of us live longer than ever thanks to better nutrition and healthcare. However, […]

An Organized, Well-Equipped Lab Has Never Been Easier

(DGIwire) — Humans have always organized things. Something in our brains tells us to break information into smaller chunks, making it easier to understand. We separate animals into different species, books into genres and clothing into styles. In this era of endless medical specialization, our aptitude for grouping is more important than ever. For each […]
