Longitudinal Studies with SCIREQ Systems

Longitudinal studies offer a wealth of information, particularly for diseases progression or development studies. In addition, smaller sample sizes are possible to accumulate significant data, as subject assessment is possible at multiple time points.

Animal Models for Pulmonary Diseases

Animal models are crucial in advancing our knowledge and understanding of pulmonary diseases. Using alternatives models, such as computer simulations, is simply not advanced enough to elucidate all the biological mechanisms inside a living creature.

Insights From SOT 2021!

SCIREQ recently attended this year’s Society of Toxicology (SOT 2021) Annual Meeting and ToxExpo! While the toxicological science of drugs of abuse has not been a major theme at previous SOT conferences, this year’s virtual event

New insights from AITox 2020!

The AITox seminars this year were quite interesting and informative, the organizers did a great job pivoting into the virtual world! If you missed the opportunity to attend, here are some highlights and what we learned.

inExpose featured in Nature publication

inExpose Featured in recent nature publication Congratulations to Dr. Blackwell’s team at Vanderbilt University who recently published in Nature Communications1 with the inExpose! As you may know, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is characterized by obstruction in airflow, chronic inflammation, and destruction of the alveolar tissue. This group from Vanderbilt University hypothesized that secretory immunoglobulin A […]

E-cigarette Vapour Deposition

E-cigarette vapour deposition E-cigarette vapour composition is influenced by a number of factors. Some of which relate to the device physically (battery charge, wattage/temperature control, puffing profile) and others to the e-liquid itself (proportion of propylene glycol and glycerol, amount of nicotine, pH of solution). Standardizing how we study these devices will be key to […]

Reproducible e-Cigarettes Exposure Environments

Reproducible E-cigarettes Exposure Environments Studies addressing the potential risks associated with electronic cigarette (e-cig) usage are urgently needed, given their rising use and popularity, especially in youth.  Coordinated efforts are required to tackle the challenge of addressing key scientific questions, as there is a diversity of devices and e-liquid formulations that exists, as well as […]
