  New Rabbit Monoclonals from Epitomics

Introducing our recently launched EP clones developed specifically for anatomical pathology. Epitomics has the largest catalogue of diagnostic grade rabbit monoclonals, with over 230 unique targets. Some of our recently launched EP clones include ARG-1, PAX-2, SOX-10, CD2, TBX21 and more. Our recent 2014 Catalogue is available here.

Study at University of Chicago uses supercomputer to shorten time required to analyze whole human genome sequences; may help pathologists deliver faster diagnoses
Dark Daily
It's a breakthrough in the time required to analyze data from whole human genome sequencing. Researchers at the University of Chicago have successfully demonstrated that genome analysis can be radically accelerated. This could be a big deal for pathologists and clinical laboratory scientists. That's because a faster time-to-answer from gene sequencing would increase its diagnostic and therapeutic value to clinicians.

This breath test could help sniff out lung cancer
The Huffington Post
A test of patients' breath could reveal whether they have lung cancer and how advanced it is, or whether they suffer from chronic, noncancerous lung conditions, a new study shows. The researchers developed a device that can "smell" lung cancer when patients blow into a balloon. Cancer cells produce specific compounds that enter the blood stream and cause changes in a patient's blood chemistry and breath, the researchers say.

Watch your step!
Lab Manager
What do we mean when we say "physical hazard"? Commonly, they include conditions and situations that might lead to slips, trips and falls. But if you are handling animals, they also cover the potential for bites, scratches and contact injuries. However, in addition to these common issues we want you to start thinking about the not-so-obvious hazards such as electrical safety hazards and high noise areas.

    Team-based healthcare engages frontline workers in new roles and provides clinical pathology labs with opportunity to add more value with lab tests
    Dark Daily
    Team-based care is coming to the American healthcare system. Among other things, this will create the need for clinical laboratories and anatomic pathology groups to better align how they report medical laboratory test results so that all appropriate members of a patient's care team have timely and appropriate access to relevant lab test data.

    4 new genes added to the 'inherited breast cancer' risk list
    Medical News Today
    Researchers at Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah have discovered four new genes that increase breast cancer risk when mutated. The team, who lead an international consortium with the aim of locating more gene mutations that may cause inherited breast cancer susceptibilities, have added RINT1, MRE11A, RAD50, and NBN to the growing list of higher risk genes.

    Nanoparticle thin films self-assemble in 1 minute
    Laboratory Equipment
    The days of self-assembling nanoparticles taking hours to form a film over a microscopic-sized wafer are over. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have devised a technique whereby self-assembling nanoparticle arrays can form a highly ordered thin film over macroscopic distances in one minute.

    Research management — a question of balance?
    University World News
    Is "research management" an oxymoron? A concept that pits researchers against administrators and threatens to kill the goose that lays the golden egg? Or is it a realistic response to a world in which national wealth is based on knowledge production and the ability to effectively participate in global market networks? Increasingly, it is the latter: Research management throughout the world has become far more professionalized and specialized, with greater emphasis on strategic research planning and research accountability.

    Employees come in 3 flavors
    Lab Manager
    When Mike started his new job he quickly realized that there was a huge problem. The way the department was set up he had to spend all of his time looking at the past instead of working with the CEO to plan the future. He also found himself working 70-80 hours per week. Mike knew this was unsustainable for several reasons. He was not using his talents and would eventually become disengaged and frustrated. He was also not doing what he was hired to do, which would quickly become a source of irritation to the CEO and detrimental to the company as a whole. Mike assessed the situation and discovered that a few of his employees' current roles were a substantial waste of talents and individual skillsets and having a negative impact organizationally. So, he reorganized the department and prioritized his time.
