The Scientist has been educating and entertaining life scientists for decades, but it wasn't until recently that we developed a tool that could help you choose the right technologies to answer your research questions. That tool is TechEdge.

What is TechEdge, you ask?

TechEdge articles highlight the nuts and bolts behind the latest technologies, leaving you informed about what parameters and features are most valuable to your work.

TechEdge videos showcase the latest platforms, instruments, and devices, giving you the ability to weigh the pros and cons of each and find the best fit for your research.

Every TechEdge feature will include a high-quality, well-researched article on a new or essential technology and a number of sponsored platform-review videos. The article is written to help you understand the basics behind how these technologies work, what parameters and variables can be customized, and how these adjustments impact data acquisition and analysis. The videos help clarify the features and benefits offered by each respective platform, letting you make an informed decision based on your research needs; if you decide that you'd like to know more about adopting a new technology, we can put you in direct contact with the sponsoring company.

In our first year, TechEdge will cover the following technologies/techniques:

Digital PCR
Super-Resolution Microscopy
In Vivo Imaging
