Explaining the toxicity of methacrylate monomers -

A possible mechanism for the toxicity of methacrylate monomers is elucidated in a recent publication from NIOM. The resin matrix of dental restorative materials consists of combinations of methacrylate monomers like bisphenol A-glycidyl dimethacrylate (BisGMA), triethylene glycol dimethacrylate (TEGDMA) and glycerol dimethacrylate (GDMA) in composite fillings, while 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) is a major constituent in most dental adhesives.

Flow cytometry -

Flow cytometry is a technology that simultaneously measures and then analyzes multiple characteristics of single particles, usually cells, as they flow in a fluid stream through a beam of light.
