Translational Research in Pediatrics IV: Solid Tissue Collection and Processing | State-of-the-Art Review Articles

Solid tissues are critical for child-health research. Specimens are commonly obtained at the time of biopsy/surgery or postmortem. Research tissues can also be obtained at the time of organ retrieval for donation or from tissue that would otherwise have been discarded. Navigating the ethics of solid tissue collection from children is challenging, and optimal handling practices are imperative to maximize tissue quality. Fresh biopsy/surgical specimens can be affected by a variety of factors, including age, gender, BMI, relative humidity, freeze/thaw steps, and tissue fixation solutions. Postmortem tissues are also vulnerable to agonal factors, body storage temperature, and postmortem intervals. Nonoptimal tissue handling practices result in nucleotide degradation, decreased protein stability, artificial posttranslational protein modifications, and altered lipid concentrations. Tissue pH and tryptophan levels are 2 methods to judge the quality of solid tissue collected for research purposes; however, the RNA integrity number, together with analyses of housekeeping genes, is the new standard. A comprehensive clinical data set accompanying all tissue samples is imperative. In this r...

The GDPR and physical security systems: convergence challenges, steps to compliance and more

IFSEC Global is operated by a business or businesses owned by Informa PLC and all copyright resides with them. Informa PLC’s registered office is 5 Howick Place, London SW1P 1WG. Registered in England and Wales. Number 8860726. The discussion, part of a day of presentations on data protection and cybersecurity organised by Genetec, also examined data protection laws elsewhere in the world. Integrated systems are only as strong as their weakest link, so effective data protection and cybersecurity policies require buy-in from the entire supply chain. The panel therefore needed diverse input and Genetec duly brought together a cyber-aware integrator, cybersecurity experts, a technology vendor (Genetec, of course), and lawyers versed in data protection law. Christian Morin, Genetec’s chief security officer, diagnosed the problems generated by the ongoing convergence of physical and information security. If security and other building systems no longer operate in silos, then neither should the people operating, managing and protecting them be sequestered from one another. How can we make sure that people throughout the supply chain take responsibility? Who should be accountabl...

Camping with kids: The right gear can make it easier

For some parents, it can be plenty challenging just to take young children on a trip to the mall. Then there are those who take their tiny hikers into the wilderness. The outdoor gear industry is ready to help with a range of easily packed camping items that both parents and kiddos can enjoy. Not that you need lots of gear. New Yorkers Amy and Paolo Marini, both avid rock climbers, have camped in the Catskills with their 5-year-old, Lorenzo, and family friends with 5- and 2-year-olds. Just getting a leafy site by water provides ready entertainment, Amy says. “Little more is needed other than swimsuits, butterfly nets and maybe water shoes to guarantee hours of afternoon fun,” she says. For hikes with very young kids, she advises packing a pair of trekking poles, as backpack-style baby carriers can throw off your center of gravity. Vermont-based writer, photographer and outdoor enthusiast Berne Broudy, who blogs about hiking and camping, recommends the Thule Sapling Elite as a carrier. Adjustable and well-padded, the pack has a built-in reservoir sleeve and lots of pockets for phone, snacks and diapers. Plus, says Broudy, “Kid-focused features include a sunshade to keep your car...

Elon Musk has laid the foundations for his new Starlink internet service by launching 60 satellites

Elon Musk has laid the foundations for his new Starlink internet service by launching 60 satellites into orbit aboard a SpaceX rocket.  Musk’s aerospace firm vaulted the satellites into space using one of its reusable Falcon 9 rockets. The single-booster craft lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 10.30pm on Thursday (2.30am UK time on Friday), The Daily Telegraph reports  The Falcon 9’s main booster successfully landed on a barge in the Atlantic Ocean shortly after lift-off, before the communications satellites were deployed into low-Earth orbit less than an hour later, the newspaper says.  According to Reuters, SpaceX claims that it may take 24 hours before it can ensure that the satellites are operating as planned. Each of the 60 satellites weighs 227kg, making them the heaviest payload carried by a SpaceX rocket to date.  The satellites mark the “initial phase” of a cluster that will beam internet towards parts of the world where access to web services is limited, the news site says. It’s also hoped that the project will “generate much-needed cash” for Musk’s “larger ambitions in space”. Starlink is Musk’s new internet service provider that aims to “connect the globe ...
