EU funds Population Genetics in leukaemia study consortium
The largest ever genomic study of relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL), the most common malignant disease of childhood, will fund Population Genetics Technologies Ltd to identify the genetic factors in resistance to treatment by carrying out a multi-year analysis of thousands of DNA samples from relapsed ALL cases.
The IntReALL consortium of 23 research teams, led by Vaskar Saha, Professor of Paediatric Oncology at The University of Manchester, will gather DNA across Europe, Japan, Israel and Australia from children who have relapsed after treatment for ALL. With funding from IntReALL's EU FP7 grant Population Genetics, creator of innovative methods for population-scale genetic analyses and biomarker discovery, will study the resulting biobank using its GenomePoolingTM
workflows to identify and validate associations between genetic risk factors and treatment efficacy...

IC for the people – Metrohm celebrates 25 years of ion chromatography
This year it is 25 years since Metrohm launched its first ion chromatograph, the 690 ion chromatograph. Since then Metrohm has profoundly changed ion chromatography with instruments that are simple to use, robust, and affordable.
In the early 1980s ion chromatography was already around as an analytical technique. However, it was very expensive and also rather difficult to use. Metrohm set out to change this with an ion chromatograph engineered to be simple to use, robust, and above all, affordable. The result was the 690 ion chromatograph, which was launched in 1987. At the time it cost only half as much as the competition's instruments...

RETSCH’s CryoMill – the new generation!
RETSCH introduced the new CryoMill generation at this year's ACHEMA!
The CryoMill has been specially designed for cryogenic grinding. An integrated cooling system ensures that the grinding jar is continually cooled with liquid nitrogen before and during the grinding process. Thus the sample is embrittled and volatile components are preserved. Thanks to the Autofill System, liquid nitrogen is continually refilled in the exact amount which is required to keep the temperature at -196 °C. The user never gets into direct contact with the LN2
which makes operating the mill particularly safe...

Break the Glass Habit
The range of Thermo Scientific Nalgene plastic labware products are designed to make your laboratory a safer place to work
This durable and flexible, high quality plastic labware can withstand the rigor of laboratory conditions where traditional glass labware often can't. Because plastic labware won't shatter, this reduces the risk of valuable solutions being lost or hazardous material being released, lowering the potential for injury to personnel in busy laboratory environments. Additionally, large labware items including high volume bottles and cylinders are much lighter in weight than glass equivalents, which lessens the risk of breakage or physical stress...
