Flow cytometry is a semi-quantitative technique in biotechnology used for cell counting, cell sorting, biomarker detection, and protein engineering. The technique is commonly used to monitor the immune response by measuring the frequency and functionality of different immune cells. The instrument used is known as flow cytometer. The cells stained with specific fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies are passed through the flow cytometer to analyse the frequency and other properties of the cells
For medical device manufacturers, the preclinical testing of medical device development is most crucial. This is the stage in which they set the design of the product including its functionality and safety aspects and validate the selected materials.
However, their major dilemmas are “When to plan the preclinical stage of the device development?” and “What aspects to consider?”
So, here we answer these questions to help the medical device manufacturers in their preclinical research
Many preclinical studies are conducted and thousands of research papers are published every year. However, these publications fail to provide clear information on how the study was designed, conducted, and analysed. They lack the standards of scientific rigour and transparency in their reports. As a result, they lose their value in informing future scientific studies, designing drugs and making policy decisions.
In such a scenario, you can be a role model and increase the potential of your
The scientists, physicians, and academicians who investigate the preclinical studies are busy individuals. They do not involve themselves in one study at a time but in multiple studies. Plus, they have their own clinical duties and responsibilities. This gives them little time to stay engaged in any of the preclinical studies. Thus, a preclinical research study suffers from a poor engagement by its investigators and its progress gets delayed. It can further impact the quality of the research res
Clinical research is as an experiment conducted on human beings to evaluate the safety & efficacy of new drugs, medical devices, new drug delivery systems etc. Several thousands of new drugs enter the market each year and unless they are tested in humans, we cannot accurately predict their effect on them. Thus, clinical trials become necessary.
But, many people in India consider preclinical research as a curse and state that “Human Beings are treated as Guinea Pigs.” They are concerne
Preclinical trials, also known as non-clinical trials are the laboratory tests of a new drug, device or medical treatment on animal subjects. The main aim of preclinical studies is to see whether the drug or the treatment really works and whether it is safe to test on humans.
Thus, the main goal of a preclinical research is to collect sufficient data and establish the safety profile of the drug or the treatment under question. And to fulfill this objective, various types of studies are carrie
