HDL High and Low Levels May Cause Premature Death

High and low levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol may increase a person's risk of premature death although commonly touted as “good cholesterol” that helps to reduce risk of both stroke and heart attacks. More...

Lab-on-a-Chip Technology Breaks New Bioparticle Separation Record

Scientists have developed a new lab-on-a-chip technology that can, for the first time, separate biological particles at the nanoscale down to 20 nanometers in diameter, a scale that gives access to important particles such as DNA, viruses, and exosomes. The breakthrough could enable detection of various diseases before symptoms appear and would facilitate use of relatively noninvasive liquid biopsies. More...
