Listen TODAY to the latest Science Unfiltered Podcast, which is new the second Tuesday of every month!
Episode 2 – Brain Snake Robot and Choosing the Best GC Column of the Science Unfiltered podcast is now live! You can find the podcast on SoundCloud, iTunes, and Spotify when you search Science Unfiltered.
This month’s episode revisits last month’s guest speaker, technical expert, Genevieve Hodson, to ask her a couple questions our listeners had written in. Listen to hear her response to why troubling shooting can’t be avoided and what the best problem solving protocol is to use.
Then we jump into an intriguing story out of MIT as we unpack their latest innovation, a thread-like robot that has the ability to maneuver through blood vessels in the brain. Engineers hope to one day in the near future to have this robotic thread paired with existing endovascular technologies so as to enable doctors to remotely move the snake robot through a patient’s brain vessels to quickly treat blood clots and lesions. This will hopefully help prevent aneurysms and strokes caused by blood clots. Strokes are the 5th leading cause of death and the leading cause of disability in the United States and this new technology might be the answer to saving so many patients from those outcomes.
Our second Science Unfiltered podcast episode then hears from gas chromatography technical specialist, Ramkumar Dhandapani, Ph.D. He takes us though the process of how to choose the best and right GC column for your analysis. If you have any technical questions after listening to his segment, reach out to our Technical Experts 24 hours/7 days a week via Live Chat. Start chatting today at www.phenomenex.com/chat.
