Comments Off on Researchers Validate Scientific and Workflow Benefits of New Imaging Technology for Microscopy
Lawrenceville, NJ – May 19, 2015 – Two recent independent, user-based studies demonstrate that a new imaging technology can lead to significant improvements in image quality and consistency for analysis and publication of histological images. The two papers are important because they provide the first quantitative evidence of both scientific and workflow benefits of a novel colorimetric approach (Datacolor® ChromaCal™) that provides quality and color consistency across microscope imaging systems and displays. Until recently, reports of the benefits for workflow efficiency, image consistency and improved analysis had been mostly anecdotal. Pathology and microscopy research imaging have integrated digitization into the workflow, but standards for quality and color consistency from image to image have not yet been set. Hence, many users are looking to research for guidance on how to incorporate these new technologies into their own practice. Read more

Comments Off on Nature retracts two stem cell articles due to research misconduct

The scientific rigor and image integrity of two papers published in Nature magazine in January 2014 were called into question and challenged by numerous stem cell researchers from around the world when they were unable to substantiate any of the results reported by the papers’ authors. In Nature’s editorial regarding the retractions, they stated that “We — research funders, research practitioners, institutions and journals — need to put quality assurance and laboratory professionalism ever higher on our agendas, to ensure that the money entrusted by governments is not squandered, and that citizens’ trust in science is not betrayed.” Here are links to several accounts of the situation: >http://www.nature.com/news/papers-on-stress-induced-stem-cells-are-retracted-1.15501 >http://www.nature.com/news/stap-retracted-1.15488 >http://news.sciencemag.org/asiapacific/2014/07/nature-retracts-controversial-stem-cell-papers >http://online.wsj.com/articles/science-journal-nature-retracts-stem-cell-research-studies-1404308718 http://www.nature.com/news/research-integrity-cell-induced-stress-1.15507

Wednesday, June 11, 2014, 1:00PM EDT Title:  How Image Integrity Impacts Your Ability to Publish… or Perish. Abstract:  Retractions of papers from publication have increased tenfold between 2005 and 2011. Each incident affects the reputation of scientists, academic institutions, and public perception, which can lead to reduced funding from NIH and NSF. The role of images in publication has largely been a subtopic in Publication Ethics, yet reported cases of scientific misconduct in which images have been involved ballooned to 80% from 1989 to 2008. Images require a series of specific steps to be taken in order to protect, calibrate and create publication-ready images in research and reports. These will be covered in the seminar “How Image Integrity Impacts Your Ability to Publish… or Perish.” Presenter:  Jerry Sedgewick, Imaging and Analysis, LLC SPACE IS LIMITED.
