pH Testing and the pH Meter for Food Analysis
In this article, we will consider how pH can be measured, what it tells us and its role in the food industry.
Combination Detector Delivers Outstanding Macromolecular Characterization
The COMBO-TWO MALS / DRI detector package from TESTA Analytical brings together a perfectly matched combination of a high performance 7-angle MALS and an ultra-stable DRI detector - both designed to optimally operate using an integral 640nm light source. Delivering valuable intrinsic data from small to large molecules, this powerful combination GPC/SEC detection technique sets a new standard for polymer, protein, and polysaccharide applications.
Shimadzu’s AIRsight: FTIR and Raman Microscopy in Perfect Harmony
Shimadzu’s AIRsight microscope improves the accuracy of qualitative analysis by enabling both infrared and Raman measurements from the same position without moving the sample. In addition, it improves sample observation efficiency, saves valuable bench space, and provides for easier operation.
The Eggstraordinary Mystery of Proteins in Renaissance Paintings
An interdisciplinary team of researchers propose that Italian Renaissance masters – artists such as Sandro Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci – added protein to their oil paintings to prevent wrinkling and issues with humidity. The study is published in Nature Communications.
Coral DNA in Water Samples Can Support Reef Conservation
Researchers have developed a method to measure coral biodiversity by extracting the environmental DNA from a liter of surface seawater collected from above a reef.
Gulf Coast Air Marred by Sulfate Pollution
The air along the Gulf of Mexico coast in Texas may be more polluted than inland air due to its highly processed and acidic chemical components of particulate matter.
Fragment-Based Drug Discovery Enters the Mainstream
This article will discuss the principles of fragment-based drug discovery and will highlight some examples of recent successes in this area.
Key Techniques in Structural Biology, Their Strengths and Limitations
Structural biology uses a variety of techniques to determine the 3D structures of biomolecules such as proteins, nucleic acids and their complexes. In this article, we consider the key techniques, their role in structural biology, strengths and limitations.
How Do You Make a Water Purifier From Fruit Waste?
Singapore scientists have demonstrated that fruit peels can be used to purify water, an innovation that can be employed in remote areas and disaster zones where electricity access is limited.
Leveling the Field in Ancient DNA Research
Some stories of history are written in ink, and others are written in nucleotide bases. Ancient DNA (aDNA) analysis – the study of DNA from archaeological or paleontological specimens – is perhaps the closest scientists will ever come to a time machine – a window into the past. In this feature article, we explore how inclusion and representation are critical considerations when we look through that window.
