Ultrasound scans,?best known for monitoring pregnancies or imaging organs, can also be used to stimulate cells and direct cell function. A team of Penn State researchers has developed an easier, more effective way to harness the technology for biomedical applications.
The novel method enables the detection of SARS-CoV-2 in nasopharyngeal exudate (the very same samples used in a PCR test) from symptomatic individuals with a sensitivity of 100% and selectivity of 87.5%.
Comprehending the basics of molecular interaction in the real, chaotic, dynamic setting of a living body is a challenge that has to be surpassed so as to deal with a variety of diseases, such as Alzheimer’s.
Researchers at the University of Nottingham have devised a revolutionary new technique for measuring the microscopic elasticity of materials for the first time. Known as SRAS, the technology works by measuring the speed of sound across the material’s surface.
Lasers are often used to look at objects in microscopes. But even the best laser has "quantum noise" that makes a picture blurry and hides the details.
Microscopes are considered to be a useful tool in biomedical research as they enable for close examination and visualization of tissues.
Biotium, a leading life science reagent supplier and producer of innovative dyes, has collaborated with Professor Ke Xu at University of California, Berkeley to generate a strategy for improving the photoswitching behavior of rhodamine dyes for optimal (d)STORM [(direct) stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy] performance.
A unique instrument at Argonne's Center for Nanoscale Materials combines a modified transmission electron microscope with an ultrafast laser system to reveal small details with potentially big impacts.
To advance Europe’s competitiveness and support advanced technical developments, the European Commission is providing €3 million of funding to early adopters of the PHABULOuS Pilot Line Services for the implementation and integration of free-form micro-optical components.
The transmission electron microscope (TEM) can image molecular structures at the atomic scale by using electrons instead of light, and has revolutionized materials science and structural biology.
