Antibodies in PML patients often fail to recognize the JC virus they are infected with.
JC Virus Carries a Mutation in MS Patients That Amplifies Brain Disease Known as PML
A LIMS can open the doors to new R&D investment! When fully integrated w/ lab instruments & equipment as well as other enterprise systems, the LIMS removes non-value added processes & builds in the opportunities for greater efficiencies to occur. An enterprise-level LIMS is able to receive & archive data from across the distributed enterprise so that infor is more readily & easily available, allowing for improved collaboration amongst the range of participants in an R&D project.
