One of the gels from today’s Outreach event and a lovely message on one of the staining boxes! Looks like these students enjoyed their lab experience today! 😄#laboratory #laboratorylife #lablife #biologylab #science #molecularbiology #outreach #publicengagement #csi #agarosegel #scicomm #stem #schoolvisit #unilife #studentlife #sixthform #laboratorytechnician #labtechlife #laboratorywork #workexperience #greatbands #greatexperience

😰🤕 Is there anything more terrifying than multi-drug resistant microbes?! 🦠 These little guys are resistant to all of the antibiotic discs we placed in their Petri dishes 😂  This was so fun to make! We worked alongside one of our customers to create this beautiful piece!

I know what you are thinking.... No I haven't invented (yet) a time machine to be able to go back to the upper school lab and work (unfortunately 😕).... 😂
I found this pic on my phone that I forgot to share as last days at school were so busy! 
I wanted to show you another use of @gratnells mini trays that can certainly helps you to have a tidy and organised bench.  They look fantastic for reagents especially for microscale activities.  In the pic different pH buffers. So much easy to hand to students! 
And you? How tidy is your bench? ☺️ ............................. #chemistry #biology #physics #scientist #science #schoolscience #scienceducation #womeninscience #womendoingscience #instascience #laboratory

Today’s #TechniqueTuesday is the basics of Fluorescent Activated Cell Sorting or FACS and Flow Cytometry.
.
.
FACS or what people often call flow cytometry is a technique that allows us to sort cells based on specific parameters. These include cell size or morphology or protein expression. .
.
A FACS sorter has a collection process and can sort your cells and put them into different wells based on their differences (like GFP expression for example) whereas flow cytometry analyzers don’t collect the cells - they simply analyze them as the name suggests. .
.
This technique is used by a wide range of people for varying experiments. Some people want to study the morphology of their cells, others want to see if a protein is present in the cell, some want to see if their cells have died, and like I mentioned earlier, counting and sorting are often needed to sort out populations of cell types from a mixture. Like pulling out the various ingredients from a fruit salad. .
.
Swipe to see a schematic! Depending on what you wish to measure or sort, the user changes the parameters of the analysis or sort to suit their needs. In the lab I often want to measure the expression of receptors on the surface of my cells, so we use an antibody conjugated to a fluorophore and use a specific laser to see what population of our cells express the receptor and at what level! .
Do you use FACS or flow cytometry?

Человеческий африканский трипаносомоз (сонная болезнь)
Сонная болезнь эндемична в 36 странах Африки к югу от Сахары, где водятся мухи цеце, являющиеся переносчиками этой болезни.
Укусам мухи цеце наиболее подвержены люди, занимающиеся сельским хозяйством, рыболовством, животноводством или охотой, и поэтому эта болезнь распространена в сельских районах.
В зависимости от паразита, вызвавшего болезнь, различают две формы африканского трипаносомоза человека: в 98% всех зарегистрированных случаев возбудителем является Trypanosoma brucei gambiense.
Непрерывные усилия по борьбе с этой болезнью привели к уменьшению числа новых случаев заболевания. В 2009 году, впервые за 50 лет, было зарегистрировано менее 10 000 случаев заболевания, а в 2017 году — 1446 случаев.
Диагностировать и лечить эту болезнь сложно, и для этого требуется персонал с особой квалификацией.
