NIST Instrument Enables High-speed Chemical Imaging of Tissues
Researchers have demonstrated a dramatically improved technique for analyzing biological cells and tissues based on characteristic molecular vibration "signatures."
New Spectroscopy Technique Provides Unprecedented Look into Photochemical Reactions
Two-dimensional electronic-vibrational spectroscopy can be used to simultaneously monitor electronic and molecular dynamics on a femtosecond time-scale.
X-rays Used to Examine How DNA Protects Itself from UV Light
Scientists have made detailed observations of a “relaxation response” that protects these molecules, and the genetic information they encode, from UV damage.
Using Spectroscopy to Diagnose Skin Cancer
Autofluorescence and diffuse reflectance spectroscopy identify malignant melanoma with 93% accuracy.
Role of Water in Chromosome Spreading and Swelling Induced by Acetic Acid Treatment
Researchers analysed intact lymphocytes before and at each stage of the chromosome preparation protocol by FTIR spectroscopy.
Studying Historic Materials with a Vis-NIR Portable Spectrometer
Analytik have reported how the LabSpec portable spectrometer from PANalytical Boulder is being used in the world of heritage research.
Sneaky Bacteria Change Key Protein’s Shape to Escape Detection
Researchers believe that this deeper understanding could help lead to new treatments for bacterial diseases.
A New Quantum Memory on the Horizon
Sensitive measurements can be used to detect signals from an individual ion in a crystal.
Diagnosis of Bladder Cancer and Prediction of Survival by Urinary Metabolomics
Bladder cancer seems to be ideal for urinary metabolomics-based diagnosis, as urine can directly contact the cancer lesion in the bladder.
A Metabolomic Perspective on Coeliac Disease
Metabolomics has proved to be a useful complement for the characterization of several physiological and pathological conditions and offers promises as a clinical tool.
