Clinical Application of Leukocyte Counts Based on Targeted DNA Methylation Analysis (

Differential leukocyte counts are usually measured based on cellular morphology or surface marker expression. It has recently been shown that leukocyte counts can also be determined by cell-type–specific DNA methylation (DNAm). Such epigenetic leukocyte counting is applicable to small blood volumes and even frozen material, but for clinical translation, the method needs to be further refined and validated. More...

Single Channel Pipetting Module Enables Hands-Free Transfers from Individual Tubes or Wells

A new single channel pipetting module for hands-free transfers from individual tubes or wells effectively automates tedious tasks such as serial dilutions, sample normalization, hit picking or pipetting of complex plate layouts, thereby increasing productivity and reproducibility in the lab while reducing hands-on time, processing errors and physical strain.
