Steve Ernst, editor and general manager, American Laboratory, fears that there is and there will be no planet like Earth in billion years on which the human beings could survive. He believes that we have been blessed to have such a planet like Earth where there are living conditions. Plus, there are not only human, but also alltypes of plants and creatures who survive on the Earth. Even if the scientists have discovered living conditions in Mars, it is far from reality. Going to the Mars itself takes seven months despite it being the nearest planet. So the people should respect the Mother Earth and try not to pollute it and destroy its natural resources. Source

The most significant topic to be discussed at the 2015 Molecular Med Tri-Con was circulating nucleic acids. Participants were informed that circulating nucleic acids provided a quick and sensitive window into tumor status and function. Liquid biopsies to characterize circulating nucleic acids were an attractive alternative to needle biopsies of solids, which missed their target due to tissue heterogeneity. The emphasis of the circulating nucleic acid track of the liquid biopsy symposium was on cancer diagnostics, while biomarkers for infectious diseases were discussed. Source

The potential market for POC systems is sizable and includes both physicians' office laboratories and the home market in the developed world. Instrument, reagent and information processing for CLIA waiver eligibility and FDA approval for home use will become a global de facto design goal. Changing the health-care paradigm to include POC diagnosis and treatment will certainly precipitate turf wars between current stakeholders. These will take time to resolve, but the real winner will be the patients and, hence, society, since outcomes will certainly improve. Source

HPLC 2014, held from May 11-15, 2014 in New Orleans, LA, developed into a meeting where the lectures dominated the program. Professor Alan Marshall opened HPLC 2014 with a review of his work in high-field nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometry (MS), particularly ion cyclotron mass spectrometry. Dr. Alexey Makarov lectured on the effect of pressure on protein chromatography. The instrument was a conventional UHPLC with UV detection. A team from the laboratory of Gert Desmet described construction and evaluation of a low thermal mass modulator that is analogous to the thermal modulators (traps) used successfully in GC × GC. Another approach to × LC was offered by Agilent. The Parking Deck Cluster (PDC) is an automated valve module for the Agilent 1200 series. In the simplest form, the PDC automates heart-cutting with a two-position, six-port valve. Several lectures focused on column optimization for a particular separation, usually with carefully selected constraints. Source
