Stimulated Raman projection microscopy and tomography using a special type of laser beam to penetrate deep into tissue might lead to technologies that eliminate the need to draw blood for analyses including drug testing and early detection of diseases such as cancer and diabetes.
Researchers at Northwestern University have created a new method (gradient-assisted multi-dimensional electronic Raman spectroscopy) to extract the static and dynamic structure of complex chemical systems. This new method uses four spectral dimensions to resolve structure to reveal hidden features of molecular structure.
Lewis E. Kay is to receive a 2017 Canada Gairdner Award for his contributions to the field of biomolecular NMR spectroscopy.

University of Sydney researchers have used infrared spectroscopy to spotlight changes in tiny cell fragments called microvesicles to probe their role in a model of the body’s immunological response to bacterial infection.
Researchers at Lancaster University have used infrared spectroscopy to detect subtle early warning signs that reveal a frog population is at risk from pollution.
HORIBA Scientific has awarded Dr Ibrahim Cissé of MIT its annual Young Fluorescence Investigator Award.
Researchers have reported a new development of hyperspectral infrared nanoimaging. It is based on Fourier transform infrared nanospectroscopy (nano-FT-IR) and enables highly sensitive spectroscopic imaging of chemical composition with nanoscale spatial resolution.
By measuring the height profile of the sample prior to analysis, mass spectrometry imaging can now visualise the distribution of chemical substances on samples with non-flat surfaces.
NMR spectroscopy has shown a molecule self-assembling into different forms passing from solution state to solid state and back again.
Using ultrafast spectroscopy, researchers from Lund University, Sweden, have successfully measured in detail the flow of solar energy, in and between different parts of a photosynthetic organism. The result is a first step in research that could ultimately contribute to the development of technologies that use solar energy far more efficiently than what is...
FT-IR spectroscopy can greatly increase the amount of information that can be extracted from a protein microarray. High-quality spectra can be obtained from spots of protein no larger than the diameter of a human hair.
New UK laboratory provides access to analytical technologies to help strengthen modern life and health sciences research.
A technique to combine the ultra-sensitivity of surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) with a slippery surface invented by researchers at Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA, USA, will make it feasible to detect single molecules of a number of chemical and biological species from gaseous, liquid or solid samples.
Scientists at EPFL have shown how a light-induced force can amplify the sensitivity and resolution of SERS for the study of single molecules.
Searching for the precise, complexly folded three-dimensional structure of a protein can be a long, intensive process with uncertain direction. A technique based on nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy offers a solution.
The combination of X-ray structure analysis, infrared spectroscopy and computer simulations has been used to study the switch proteins Ran and Ras with subatomic resolution.
Agilent Technologies has announced the opening of a new centre for life science research in partnership with Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. The Carleton Mass Spectrometry Center, located in the university’s department of chemistry, is equipped with state-of-the-art mass spectrometers, gas and liquid chromatography systems, and bioinformatics tools from Agilent. It will be an analytical...
Collaboration to produce commercially available assays that quantitatively measure phosphorylated and unmodified proteins known to be involved in cancer signalling pathways.
A new infrared light source with unprecedented sensitivity allows molecular fingerprints of cancer cells.
A team of bioinformaticians at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, Germany, led by Professor Sebastian Böcker, together with their collaborators from the Aalto-University in Espoo, Finland, have developed a search engine that significantly simplifies the identification of molecular structures of metabolites. They describe their search engine “CSI:FingerID” in a paper in ...
