Imaging mass spectrometry detects early lipid changes in acute kidney injury

University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA, researchers have made a microscopic snapshot of the early renal lipid changes in acute kidney injury, using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation (MALDI) tissue imaging to localise the changes.

Solar cell improvements through fluorescence spectroscopy research

Edinburgh Instruments have installated one of their top end fluorescence spectroscopy systems at the brand new Vidyasirimedhi Institute of Science and Technology (VISTEC) in Thailand. VISTEC is funded by PPT, a petroleum company, with the aim of producing high impact research publications in the science and technology field. The University has invested heavily in state of the art scientific facilities and recruited some of the best professors and researchers, including NRCT Research Award and Outstanding Scientist Award winners.

The FLS980 Fluorescence Spectrometer and the LP980 Transient Absorption Spectrometer will be used to investigate and improve the efficiency and photochemical characteristics of organic solar cell technology. The group researchers are aiming to reduce global consumption and dependence on fossil fuels through improving the overall light-collection efficiency and simplify the manufacture of this type of organic solar cell.

   

NMR and EPR spectroscopy produce milestone in Parkinson's research

NMR-ESR-synuclein-sThe protein α-synuclein plays an important role in Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. Although a considerable amount is known about the structure of the protein within the Parkinson’s-typical amyloid deposits, nothing was known about its original state in the healthy cell up to now. High-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy have helped to visualise the protein in healthy cells.
