World Laboratory Day 2019 – working behind the scenes of medicine
They are working in the background, but the things they do often decide about the right therapy or can even be life savers: labs and laboratory technology are probably the most important part of today’s medicine. This is why World Laboratory Day aims to draw attention to this "hidden" part of medicine.

New microscopy technique peers deep into the brain
In order to understand the brain, scientists must be able to see the brain--cell by cell, and moment by moment. However, because brains comprise billions of microscopic moving parts, faithfully recording their activity comes with many challenges.

Laboratory medicine: sensor to detect viral infections
A team of Colorado State University researchers has developed technology that can detect extremely small amounts of antibodies in a person's blood. Antibodies develop to infect cells or kill pathogens, essentially fighting off a bacteria or virus. The levels of antibodies in the blood can tell whether that person is sick.

Machine learning model describes cell development
From birth through to death, cells lead an eventful existence. Thanks to single-cell genomics, their destiny can be analyzed. But this method destroys the cell. In order to address this problem, researchers at the Helmholtz Zentrum München and the University of Massachusetts use pseudodynamics, a mathematical model that estimates developmental processes from single-cell time series observations.
