Work on the camera for the future Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) has reached a major milestone with the completion and delivery of the camera’s fully integrated cryostat. With 3.2 gigapixels, the LSST camera will be the largest digital camera ever built for ground-based astronomy. It’s being assembled at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
In a new study in the American Chemical Society journal ACS Nano, Rice materials scientist Jun Lou, graduate student and lead author Emily Hacopian and collaborators, including Tour, stress-tested rebar graphene and found that nanotube rebar diverted and bridged cracks that would otherwise propagate in unreinforced graphene.
The Controlled Environmental Solutions business is made up of highly specialized testing and certification services, control procedures and tailored decontamination technology for the clean room to ensure optimal performance of the environment and end-user compliance to highly regulated industry standards.
A next-generation biomanufacturing plant incorporates multiple innovative technologies into a single facility, and therefore is built in half the construction time with approximately one half of the operating cost of a traditional plant. The next-generation biomanufacturing plant require a smaller manufacturing footprint and offer greater environmental benefits, including reduced consumption of water and energy and lower levels of carbon emissions.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the first ever non-surgical treatment for the rare neuroendocrine cancers pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma. The approval was based on a multi-center trial led by researchers in the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania and was granted to Progenics Pharmaceuticals for AZEDRA.
Platelet BioGenesis (PBG), the leader in the production of functional human platelets (PLTs+™) from stem cells and the development of platelet-based therapeutics, announced it has moved into brand new lab space in Cambridge, MA. Located next to MIT, the newly renovated property puts Platelet BioGenesis in the heart of the most dynamic biotech cluster in the world.
The study demonstrates that the new plant system for norovirus vaccine production is effective against the tenacious pathogen and that the versatile method could be used for the development of a broad range of novel vaccines. It is estimated that an effective vaccine against gastroenteritis could save billions of dollars in healthcare costs in the U.S. alone.
The researchers, from the University of Cambridge and the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology (MRC LMB), found that the chances for life to develop on the surface of a rocky planet like Earth are connected to the type and strength of light given off by its host star.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disorder that affects 28 million people in the United States. With no current disease-modifying therapy for OA, most patients rely on symptomatic relief to manage joint inflammation and chronic pain.
When tissue is damaged, one of the body’s first inflammatory immune-system responders are macrophages, cells which are commonly thought of as “construction workers” that clear away damaged tissue debris and initiate repair. However, prolonged inflammation promotes the progression of many diseases, including obesity.
With an aim to grow and further establish their international presence in pharmaceutical manufacturing, Wockhardt inaugurated a ‘state-of-the-art’ sterile dry powder injection cleanroom manufacturing facility for the production and packaging of sterile dry powder injection in Dubai. On approval of the new drug by US FDA, this manufacturing facility will be commissioned for commercial production.
