Researchers at the University of Surrey have found that LC-MS and PLS of non-invasive skin swab samples may be enough to detect COVID-19.
Scientists have succeeded for the first time in the direct spectroscopic detection of the binding of the “Parkinson protein” α-synuclein to lipid membranes in the cell.
Using time-resolved X-ray photoemission spectroscopy, scientists are for the first time analysing at the femtosecond scale the processes in a model system for organic solar cells.
HORIBA Scientific has presented Dr Luca Lanzano with the annual Young Fluorescence Investigator Award at the virtual Biophysical Society virtual event.
Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology have developed a microcomb design with up to ten times higher net conversion efficiency.
Mass spectrometry can be used to identify Parkinson’s based on compounds found on the surface of skin. The findings offer hope that a pioneering new test could be developed to diagnose the degenerative condition through a simple skin swab.
trinamiX and Viavi Solutions have announced a joint development agreement to build an NIR spectrometer module for integration into consumer devices.
A research team from the Zhejiang University Institute of Translational Medicine has developed an active SERS probe that can be used for SERS imaging of tumours.
Scientists at have Ehime University have developed a multidimensional vibrational circular dichroism system using a quantum cascade laser.
Oxford Instruments, Oxford University and Henry Royce Institute have agreed an R&D collaboration to use benchtop NMR to develop new methods to monitor reactions in battery cells.
Researchers at Kanazawa University have successfully tested a sensor for measuring hydrogen peroxide concentrations near cell membranes. The sensor has the potential to become a tool for new cancer therapies.
An NMR-based serum test has been shown to assess kidney function and provides for a more precise estimation of glomerular filtration rate.
Professor John Mallard played a crucial role in the development of two of the world’s most important medical technologies: magnetic resonance imaging and nuclear medicine imaging.
A grant for a new integrated femtosecond laser ablation and laser induced breakdown spectroscopy system has been made to UK scientists to allow them to understand how the Earth works and how it’s changing.
Stress caused by soil bacteria can have a positive effect on plants and Raman spectroscopy is being used to help study this.
Graphene Flagship researchers have developed a new measurement standard for the analysis of graphene and layered materials that could accelerate production and optimise device fabrication.
Pfeiffer Vacuum has supplied a number of vacuum pumps and other products for Brazil’s synchrotron.
Debris from depleted uranium munitions used in the Gulf War has long been blamed for contributing to the illness of hundreds of thousands of veterans, but new research using ICP-MS proves it is not the cause.
Forced to consider new research opportunities due to lockdown restrictions, researchers from the Physics department of the Politecnico di Milano developed an innovative connection between the field of artificial intelligence and non-linear optics.
A novel gel electrophoresis technique has reduced the time for the sample pretreatment of trace marker proteins derived from clinical samples from around 20 to 5 hours.
