Deciphering proteins in detail
The analysis of protein expression in tissue is a key step to diagnose and treat diseases. With the world's first single-cell western platform “Milo” from ProteinSimple, researchers can measure protein expression in individual cells in a fast and simple way e.g. to determine which cell is responsible for a tumor and how it behaves. Glass substrates with a razor-thin coating from SCHOTT NEXTERION® play a crucial role in this scenario: They ensure that the gel remains in place so that microwells can be formed, in which the cells are singled out.
A real view
Manufacturers of Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) devices have a new solution to boost user experience by using the new generation of SCHOTT RealView™ high-index glass wafers with a refractive index of 1.9. Deeply immersive AR/MR applications are now possible, enabled by a wider Field of View (FoV) of up to 65 degrees. SCHOTT’s researchers achieved these remarkable advancements by designing a glass formulation meeting the unique demands of the industry.
