Digital PCR Experiment Design and Primer DVD Digital PCR Experiment Design and Primer DVD
October 6, 2014 |
The course will provide a broad overview of microfluidics as an enabling technology for point-of-care diagnostics. The course is constructed to provide a comprehensive overview of the field, starting with an introduction to microfluidics and its principles. Different manufacturing options will be discussed. Emphasis is put on the complete development process for commercial microfluidics-enabled POC-products, covering aspects of development strategies, application cases, markets as well as aspects of commercialization. The course covers the existing product landscape as well as exemplary disease cases with examples from molecular and immunodiagnostics. The course is suitable for scientists, technicians, engineers but also business developers who would like to develop a deeper understanding of microfluidics as a key technology for the development of new product in the POC markets

Vaccines: The End of Illness
This report analyzes recent trends in medicinal chemistry and evaluates their significance for advancing R&D productivity. We consider technological modalities and market dynamics, with an emphasis on outsourcing and user views on the implications of current practices.
Ocular Disorders: Rising Therapeutics, Technologies, and Devices
New to Insight Pharma Reports is: Ocular Disorders: Rising Therapeutics, Technologies, and Devices. This report covers several companies and their approach to targeting ocular diseases including wet and dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD) while also providing alternative therapeutic options for various ocular complications.
Cancer Immunotherapy Report
Cancer Immunotherapy: immune checkpoint inhibitors, cancer vaccines, and adoptive T-cell therapies, published by Insight Pharma reports and written by Allan B. Haberman focuses on the rising potential for the newest and most promising of cancer treatments: cancer immunotherapy. Cancer immunotherapy was once just a dream in the minds of physicians, clinicians and patients, but only recently (2010s era) has it actually been within reasonable reach. Cancer Immunotherapy: immune checkpoint inhibitors, cancer vaccines, and adoptive T-cell therapies covers three principle therapies that have been in the works for cancer patients.
