Cell Stress Research for Better Health and Better Beer

Digital Holographic Microscope Generates Label-free Cell Measurements

The cells’ reactions to stress is measured through a method in which a laser beam is first split into two light paths. One of the light paths passes through a cell sample, and one does not. The two beams are then recombined at a slight offset angle. It is then possible to read changes in the cell’s properties through the variations in the beams’ phase offsets. ​​​ ​Illustration: Yen Strandqvist​



Study Finds Commercially Available Antibodies Are Not Binding Their Target


In a new study, researchers have tested the binding specificity of commercial antibodies to the C9ORF72 protein, and explored a novel validation approach.


Will a Next-generation Therapy for Diabetes Soon Be Available?


In order to improve diabetes therapy, researchers at the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, have identified a protein called S100A9 which, under certain conditions, seems to act as a blood sugar and lipid regulator while avoiding the most harmful side effects of insulin.


Device Identifies Airborne Hazards Rapidly


Scientists have developed a portable device that can identify a wide range of airborne gases and chemicals instantly. The device is suitable for rapid deployment to identify airborne hazards from tiny gas molecules like sulfur dioxide to large molecules like benzene.
