  • Stressed Out Cells Shut Off Protein Production

    American Biotechnologist
    12 Sep 2014 | 1:59 am
    Living cells are like miniature factories, responsible for the production of more than 25,000 different proteins with very specific 3-D shapes. And just as an overwhelmed assembly line can begin making mistakes, a stressed cell can end up producing misshapen proteins that are unfolded or misfolded. Now Duke University researchers in North Carolina and Singapore have shown that the cell recognizes the buildup of these misfolded proteins and responds by reshuffling its workload, much like a stressed out employee might temporarily move papers from an overflowing inbox into a junk drawer.

  • More Deadly Biohazards Found at the NIH!

    So what can you get while working at the NIH? In the past we told you about your risk of exposure to Anthrax, Smallpox, and the Avian Flu Virus. Well, now you can add ricin and Burkholderia pseudomallei, two well-recognized biological weapons, to your shopping list! The Washington Post is reporting that during a beefed up safety inspection, NIH employees unexpectedly found these and several other deadly biological agents improperly stored among old and long-forgotten stockpiles, some dating back over 60 years. I must admit that, unfortunately, I have found the news much less shocking this…

  • RT-PCR Directly from Cultured Cells

    American Biotechnologist
    8 Sep 2014 | 1:10 pm
    Bio-Rad Laboratories announced the launch of new rapid cell lysis kits that allow researchers to obtain reverse transcription quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) data directly from cultured cells without the need for a separate RNA purification step. Bio-Rad’s SingleShot™ family of cell lysis RT-qPCR kits provide high-quality gene expression results in less than two hours. Available column isolation methods for purifying RNA are time-consuming and laborious while other methods that enable RT-qPCR directly from cell lysates can damage the RNA and result in poor genomic DNA clearance. However,…

  • Sapphire display covers featured in Apple smart watches but not in iPhone 6

    11 Sep 2014 | 6:52 am
    The long wait is finally over. From a sapphire industry standpoint, Apple killed the suspense within the first 10 minutes by announcing that its new 4.7” and 5.5” iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus will both feature a traditional ion-exchange strengthened glass display cover. Sapphire remains in the camera lens cover and the touch ID sensor, features that were already present on the iPhone5 S. Yole Développement believes that technical and manufacturing issues at various levels of the supply chain have prevented Apple from using sapphire as the display cover in this year iteration of its iPhone.

    By Christian Gregor Dieseldorff, Industry Research & Statistics, SEMI (September 8, 2014) The general consensus for the semiconductor industry is for this year’s positive trend to continue into 2015 as both revenue growth and unit shipment growth are expected to be in the mid- to high- single digit range. SEMI just published the World Fab Forecast report at the end of August, listing major investments for 216 facilities in 2014 and over 200 projects in 2015.  The report predicts growth of 21% for Front End fab equipment spending in 2014 (including new, used, and in-house), for total…

    BY PETE SINGER, Editor-in-Chief It would be difficult to overstate how critical the development of a workable, high volume manufacturing EUV lithography solution is to the semiconductor industry. It is no doubt why Intel, TSMC and Samsung invested billions in ASML in 2012, and why ASML acquired Cymer in 2013. Progress has been slower than hoped, and many are questioning if it will be ready for the 10nm generation, which is slated to go into production in late 2015/early 2016.

From a sapphire industry standpoint, Apple killed the suspense within the first 10 minutes by announcing that its new 4.7” and 5.5” iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus will both feature a traditional ion-exchange strengthened glass display cover. Sapphire remains in the camera lens cover and the touch ID sensor, features that were already present on the iPhone5 S. Yole Développement believes that technical and manufacturing issues at various levels of the supply chain have prevented Apple from using sapphire as the display cover in this year iteration of its iPhone.

    By Christian Gregor Dieseldorff, Industry Research & Statistics, SEMI (September 8, 2014) The general consensus for the semiconductor industry is for this year’s positive trend to continue into 2015 as both revenue growth and unit shipment growth are expected to be in the mid- to high- single digit range. SEMI just published the World Fab Forecast report at the end of August, listing major investments for 216 facilities in 2014 and over 200 projects in 2015.  The report predicts growth of 21% for Front End fab equipment spending in 2014 (including new, used, and in-house), for total…

    BY PETE SINGER, Editor-in-Chief It would be difficult to overstate how critical the development of a workable, high volume manufacturing EUV lithography solution is to the semiconductor industry. It is no doubt why Intel, TSMC and Samsung invested billions in ASML in 2012, and why ASML acquired Cymer in 2013. Progress has been slower than hoped, and many are questioning if it will be ready for the 10nm generation, which is slated to go into production in late 2015/early 2016. The cover story this month looks at alternatives, including mutli e-beam and directed self-assembly. A push to 3D…

    Capital equipment suppliers must provide advanced analytical systems that leverage data generated by their tools to help their fab customers address the challenges of Big Data and advanced analytics.  BY TOM MARIANO, Foliage, Burlington, MA  We live in a highly-connected world. Powerful intelligent devices for personal and home use are pervasive and proliferating at an accel- erated rate and will number in the tens of billions in the years to come. These devices are connected to powerful back-end software creating intelligent systems. The semiconductor industry is a major enabler of these…

  • Sapphire display covers featured in Apple smart watches but not in iPhone 6

    The long wait is finally over. From a sapphire industry standpoint, Apple killed the suspense within the first 10 minutes by announcing that its new 4.7” and 5.5” iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus will both feature a traditional ion-exchange strengthened glass display cover. Sapphire remains in the camera lens cover and the touch ID sensor, features that were already present on the iPhone5 S. Yole Développement believes that technical and manufacturing issues at various levels of the supply chain have prevented Apple from using sapphire as the display cover in this year iteration of its iPhone.

    By Christian Gregor Dieseldorff, Industry Research & Statistics, SEMI (September 8, 2014) The general consensus for the semiconductor industry is for this year’s positive trend to continue into 2015 as both revenue growth and unit shipment growth are expected to be in the mid- to high- single digit range. SEMI just published the World Fab Forecast report at the end of August, listing major investments for 216 facilities in 2014 and over 200 projects in 2015.  The report predicts growth of 21% for Front End fab equipment spending in 2014 (including new, used, and in-house), for total…

    BY PETE SINGER, Editor-in-Chief It would be difficult to overstate how critical the development of a workable, high volume manufacturing EUV lithography solution is to the semiconductor industry. It is no doubt why Intel, TSMC and Samsung invested billions in ASML in 2012, and why ASML acquired Cymer in 2013. Progress has been slower than hoped, and many are questioning if it will be ready for the 10nm generation, which is slated to go into production in late 2015/early 2016. The cover story this month looks at alternatives, including mutli e-beam and directed self-assembly. A push to 3D…

    BY JAMIE GIRARD, senior director, Public Policy, SEMI North America  With changes coming in Washington, SEMI has important work ahead supporting the innovators and job creators of this country. Advancing the goals of its members, SEMI advocates legislation in congress, targeting passage of the Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Act, increases to NSF and NIST funding and changes to R&D tax credits. As mid-term election season heats up throughout the country, lawmakers’ minds have begun the biennial shift back toward the electorate and the promise of a frenetic sprint to…
