Sneezes, rain clouds, and ink jet printers: They all produce or contain liquid droplets so tiny it would take several billion of them to fill a liter bottle.
New alliance to leverage metrologically-accurate compression solutions with modern optical imaging.
Fluorescence light microscopy has the unique ability to observe cellular processes over a scale that bridges four orders of magnitude. Yet, its application to living cells is fundamentally limited by the very rapid and unceasing movement of molecules that define its living state.
The first-ever detachable head-mounted photoacoustic microscope for imaging brain activity in freely moving mice has been developed by scientists. The device has an option to be removed once imaging is over, thus enabling long-term studies that can disclose crucial insights into neurodegenerative diseases and other neurological disorders.
Since artificial intelligence pioneer Marvin Minsky patented the principle of confocal microscopy in 1957, it has become the workhorse standard in life science laboratories worldwide, due to its superior contrast over traditional wide-field microscopy.
Scientists are building a new super-resolution microscope that uses laser light to study the inner workings and behaviours of superbugs to gain new insights into how they cause disease.
As a kid, were you ever curious to know what lice looked like from really close by- Or even a mosquito- To do this you would definitely need to use a microscope, in order to observe all the complex structures of these insects.
When reflecting on science and research, it is hard to find a technology that is as important as microscopy.
Researchers have developed a way to produce high-resolution virtual microscopy images that allow detailed visualization of tissue without time-consuming staining procedures.
Current medical diagnostics involve sending samples to laboratory facilities, which can be difficult and expensive.
