Take a look at our initiatives to learn more about our goals to improve reproducibility in life sciences and how you can get involved.
Advances in life science research, including the development of life-saving therapies and cures, build upon the reproducibility and translation of previously published data and findings. In simplest terms, reproducibility means that an experiment should be able to be reproduced by an independent lab with results that broadly support the conclusions of the original scientist(s).
Reproducibility 2020 is a challenge and an action plan to significantly improve the quality of biological research.
An all too common contributor in biomedical research is the widespread use of misidentified or contaminated cell lines, reported to range from 15% to 36%.
Antibodies are indispensable biological reagents, yet are a major contributor to the current reproducibility crisis in preclinical research. A variety of issues – from production variations and storage conditions to improper validation techniques—can jeopardize even the best-designed biomedical experiments.
BioSpecimen Commons ensures you know where your samples were came from. See how this helps your research.
Modern labs and researchers must have a firm understanding of lab automation and the digital tools that reduce costs and improve reliability in studies.
