Stem Cell Research Thrives at UW Madison's Waisman Center

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Nov 07, 2013

The hype in medical media over stem cells often overlooks the complexity and difficulty behind their production. In fact, there are only a few laboratories among businesses and universities with the capacity to pull it off. This is one of the things that make the Waisman Biomanufacturing Center at the University of Wisconsin, Madison particularly impressive.

Life Science Funding News on our Company Blog

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, Sep 25, 2013

In an article on our Science Market Update blog last week, we featured some life science funding news stories that we covered in our Life Science Company and Industry News Briefs blog the week before. We’d like to do the same this week because a number of last week’s funding news stories may be of interest to lab suppliers working to sell lab equipment at these well-funded research institutions. In the following paragraphs, we’ll give a brief summary of what schools received funding, how much funding they received, and what the topic of research is. We’ll also include links for further reading.

Minnesota Bacteria Eat Chlorine Waste

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Sep 05, 2013

When we jump into the swimming pool for some last-minute summer revelry, the worst part of getting out is the feeling of residual chlorine on our bodies. The environment doesn’t respond well to chlorine either- several synthetic chlorine-based compounds are toxic when released into nature and have taken part in the development of numerous superfund sites. Fortunately, a team from the University of Minnesota’s BioTechnology Institute is working on a way to clean up this chlorine, with help from some hungry bacteria.
