The location of metal complexes within living cancer cells has been accurately determined using Raman microscopy. The researchers have thus gained new insights into the mechanism of action of metal-containing drugs, to which they ascribe great potential capacities, e.g. in the treatment of cancer. These findings are of fundamental significance and are thus featured as a VIP (very important paper) in the current edition of Angewandte Chemie.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has opened a global food testing laboratory devoted to helping contain costly and life-threatening chemical contamination crises. The Food Safety Response Center, located in Dreieich, Germany, is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and staffed by world-class chemists who will quickly mobilise to aid governments and businesses facing an unknown food safety threat involving chemical contaminants. One recent threat, the melamine crisis in China, claimed the lives of at least six children, made nearly 300,000 ill and cost companies worldwide billions before it was contained.
The recipients of the 2010 European Magnetic Resonance Awards are John R. Griffiths (Basic Sciences) for his contributions to the applications of magnetic resonance spectroscopy in oncology, and Stefan Neubauer (Medical Sciences) for his contributions to anatomical and functional cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy.
Bruker Corporation and Agilent Technologies have announced that they have entered into a definitive asset purchase agreement. Pursuant to this agreement, Bruker will acquire certain product lines of Varian Inc., which Agilent has committed to divest in connection with obtaining regulatory approval for Agilent's previously announced acquisition of Varian.
ESA’s Herschel Space Observatory has revealed the chemical fingerprints of potential life-enabling organic molecules in the Orion Nebula, a nearby stellar nursery in our Milky Way galaxy. This detailed spectrum, obtained with the Heterodyne Instrument for the Far Infrared (HIFI) demonstrates the gold mine of information that Herschel-HIFI will provide on how organic molecules form in space.
Researchers Sebastian Busch, Christoph Smuda, Luis Carlos Pardo and Tobias Unruh from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) have discovered, using neutron spectroscopy techniques, that the molecules of a cell membrane do not move at random as previously believed, but rather in a flowing motion as suggested by various computer simulations.
A European research project has shown how to build optical sensors directly into the structure of labs-on-chips. The breakthrough paves the way for on-the-spot medical diagnostics.
Scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Technische Universität München (TUM) under the direction of Professor Michael Sattler have developed a new strategy allowing them to determine the spatial structure of biomolecules in solution based around NMR spectroscopy. The method is flexible and generally applicable to obtaining structural information for signal forwarding pathways in the cell or in the regulation of gene expression. Their work is reported in Angewandte Chemie.
