Tackling Vaccine (Im)purity
Though COVID-19 has commanded our collective attention since 2020, seasonal influenza continues to impact the lives of millions. Can vaccines protect us against both? Recently, Pfizer and BioNTech announced that their mRNA-based combination flu and COVID-19 vaccine has reached the clinical trial stage – a world first. A combined vaccine would simplify the immunization process, leading to greater vaccine uptake and prevention of both respiratory diseases.Read Article

Digital Microscope Simplifies Cell Culture Checks
Mateo TL, a new digital transmitted light inverted microscope for routine cell culture, has been launched by Leica Microsystems. With Mateo TL, lab members can easily and comfortably check and document cell growth. By consistently measuring confluency, they can be confident in the readiness of their samples for downstream experiments. “Good cell culture sample preparation is an important starting point for every successful experiment, and now it has become even easier and more reliable with Mateo TL,” said James O’Brien, Vice President of Life Sciences and Applied Microscopy at Leica Microsystems.Read Article
