NMR Spectroscopy

Noninvasive evaluation of the spatial distribution of chemical composition and diffusion behavior of materials is becoming possible by advanced nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR Spectroscopy) pulse sequence editing. However, there is room for improvement in the spectral resolution and analytical method for application to heterogeneous samples. Here, researchers develop applications for comprehensively evaluating compounds and their [..]

Super Resolution Microscope

Centrioles are about 100 times smaller than a mammalian cell, and a thousand times smaller than a human hair. So, observing them inside of living cells required improving super resolution microscope technology that uses light to probe specimens, since the methods tend to be too slow for structural studies. Dora Mahecic, a Ph.D. student in [..]

Fluorescent Dyes

US scientists have developed a molecular shield that stabilizes near-infrared fluorescent dyes and enhances their functionality. Fluorescence bioimaging often uses the near-infrared light region because this radiation can efficiently penetrate human tissue. Fluorescent dyes designed for this purpose usually have a flat, symmetrical molecular architecture, which favors absorption of near-infrared light, but the dyes also [..]

Cryo Electron Microscopy

Researchers have developed a new fluorescence microscopy technique to dramatically enhance the resolution achievable when imaging intracellular structures. The technique uses the distortions created by a specimen to pinpoint the location of individual molecules, and thereby infer the location of intracellular structures. The technique could be particularly useful in studying neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s. [..]

Drug Delivery Technology With Microscopy

Synchrotron x ray fluorescence microscopy can be used as a method for measuring the concentrations of different elements in cross-sections of the ear at extremely high resolution. This method could be of great importance for addressing many open questions in hearing medical diagnosis research. X ray fluorescence microscopy uses synchrotron radiation to evoke emissions from [..]

Scanning Probe Microscopy

Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) has revolutionized the fields of materials, nano-science, chemistry, and biology, by enabling mapping of surface properties and surface manipulation with atomic precision. However, these achievements require constant human supervision; fully automated SPM has not been accomplished yet. Researchers demonstrate an artificial intelligence framework based on machine learning for autonomous SPM operation [..]

Researchers have developed a way to perform optical coherence tomography (OCT) in hard-to-reach areas of the body such as joints. The advance could help bring this high-resolution biomedical imaging technique to new surgical and medical applications. OCT can image structures measured in microns, making it ideal for seeing subtle changes in tissue that might indicate [..]
