Metamaterial Absorbers for Infrared Inspection Technologies
A metamaterial absorber capable of highly sensitive infrared detection enhances the spectroscopy of tiny molecular details.
Pancreatic Cancer Stem Cells Could be "Suffocated" by Anti-diabetic Drug
A new study shows that pancreatic cancer stem cells (PancSCs) are virtually addicted to oxygen-based metabolism, and could be “suffocated” with a drug already used to treat diabetes.
Marzipan Made From Pure Almonds
Researchers carry out DNA analyses and use advanced protein identification techniques to determine whether marzipan is made from pure almonds or also contains other nuts or beans.
Evidence of Ancient Life Discovered Deep Below the Seafloor
Ancient rocks harbored microbial life deep below the seafloor, reports a team of scientists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), Virginia Tech, and the University of Bremen.

Raman Microscopy study crystallographic defects in silicon carbide wafers.
Structural Discoveries Could Aid in Better Drug Design
Scientists have uncovered the structural details of how some proteins interact to turn two different signals into a single integrated output.
X-ray Laser Experiment Could Help in Designing Drugs for Brain Disorders
Scientists found that when two protein structures in the brain join up, they act as an amplifier for a slight increase in calcium concentration, triggering a gunshot-like release of neurotransmitters from one neuron to another.

Measurement of Phenolic Compounds in Red Wines Using the SpectraMax® Plus384 Microplate Reader

Molecular Devices

Measurement of tannin, iron-reactive phenolics, anthocyanin and polymeric pigment in red wine is an important part of quality control in the wine industry. Precise and reliable measurement of phenolic compounds in wine is critical for making decisions during fermentation, maceration, pressing and blending. Harbertson et al. developed a comprehensive red wine phenolics assay in 2003.1 Traditionally this assay is performed using a cuvette-based UV-vis spectrophotometer. It is a time-consuming and laborious process of reading individual samples in separate cuvettes, recording the results, and analyzing the data. Identifying the need for a rapid and cost-effective way of performing the assay, Heredia et al. adapted the assay for a microplate platform. This approach increases the throughput with respect to labor, time and sample volume. The assay widens the capacity to monitor the fermentations for extraction of phenolic compounds in an average-sized winery. Here we describe the use of MDS Analytical Technologies’ SpectraMax® Plus384 microplate reader and SoftMax® Pro software to efficiently collect and analyze the data for this assay.
