Diseases like Alzheimer’s are caused when proteins aggregate and clump together. Using atomic force microscopy and infrared spectroscopy, EPFL scientists have successfully distinguished between the disease-causing aggregation forms of proteins. The finding can help change pharmaceutical treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
A Lab-on-a-Disc platform combined with Raman microscopy and developed by a German and Irish team of researchers can dramatically cut the time to detect bacterial species that cause urinary tract infections—a major cause of sepsis—from 24 hours to within 70 minutes.
UCLA, USA, are combining Raman microscopy with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to study archaeological textiles and fibres.
The Center for Structural Biology and Bioinformatics at the Free University of Brussels (Université Libre de Bruxelles, ULB) has developed expertise in the analysis of biological molecules using infrared spectroscopy. Now, with the help of Scottish microarray instrumentation company, Arrayjet, the Center has integrated microarray technology to speed up and enhance the analysis of bio molecules such as proteins, which are exposed to hundreds of experimental conditions on a single chip using infrared imaging.
Berkeley Lab researchers’ novel diffraction spectroscopy technique will provide insight to chemical processes at important battery interface.
A new technique combines electron microscopy and synchrotron x-rays at Brookhaven Lab to track chemical reactions under real operating conditions.
Many details of the wall and ceiling frescos in the cloister of Brandenburg Cathedral have faded: Plaster on which horses once “galloped” appears more or less bare. Hyperspectral imaging reveals images that remain hidden to the human eye, however, and is thus a big help for art historians.
The winners of this year’s WITec PaperAwards, which honour outstanding scientific publications that feature results acquired with a WITec instrument,have been announced. The three winners were chosen from over 60 entrants.
ICNIRS award, which recognises the unique contribution of Karl Norris as the founder of near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy in the modern world, was unveiled at the recent International Diffuse Reflectance Conference (IDRC) in Chambersburg..
