Electron Microscopy – Highlights
Cryo-Electron Microscopy: Guiding the Next Generation of Therapeutics With Complex Insights
This article explores how advances in cryo-EM are promising to bridge the divide between cellular and molecular biology, leading to the development of targeted treatments for diseases such as COVID-19.
Electron Microscopy Techniques, Strengths, Limitations and Applications
Electron microscopy has harnessed the power of physics to allow us to see beyond the limits imposed by visible light. In this article, we explore how electron microscopy works, some of the common techniques and applications and ways the field continues to push the boundaries.
SEM vs TEM
Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) are the two most common types of electron microscopy. TEM and SEM differ in how they work and what types of images they are able to capture. This article will overview SEM and TEM, including what they are, how they work, and how they compare to one another.
Leading the Charge in the Cryo-EM Resolution Revolution
See how cryo-EM advances are changing scientific research, particularly in cell and drug discovery studies, and the role that precision instruments are playing in this.
Carbon Atom Migration Measured Using "Hot" Graphene
The migration of carbon atoms on the surface of the nanomaterial graphene was recently measured for the first time.
What Makes the Human Brain More Complex?
The analysis of the human brain is a central goal of neuroscience. However, for methodological reasons, research has largely focused on model organisms, in particular the mouse. Now, neuroscientists gained novel insights on human neural circuitry using tissue obtained from neurosurgical interventions.
Dynamics of Atom-Atom Interactions Imaged in Real Time
Researchers have succeded in observing and characterizing the dynamic assembly of metallic atoms using scanning transmission electron microscopy and video-based tracking.
Study Reveals How Cells Form Vesicles To Transport Cargo Like Growth Factors
Advanced fluorescence microscopy imaging has shown how cells form vesicles, resolving the conflict between existing models of how the vesicles form.
Proteros Expands Oncology Collaboration and License Agreement With AstraZeneca
Under the expanded collaboration, Proteros will receive additional research funding, milestone payments plus royalties.
Microscale Separation: A Chromatography System for Low Volume Size Exclusion Chromatography
The structural characterization of complex proteins gives researchers a glimpse into their in vivo mechanistic functions and complex chemistries. In the case of drug development, structural information of proteins involved in disease pathways is crucial for downstream rational design of novel therapeutics.
