The ultrasensitive camera delivers up to 95% QE, 3 e– read noise and a superb 300,000 e–...
Research from Rice University, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Kansas State University in the USA has used super-resolution microscopy and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy to characterize such nanoscale spaces in chromatography media.
Shimadzu has introduced the RF-6000 spectrofluorophotometer. By optimising the internal design, a signal-to-noise ratio of 350 : 1 is achieved, allowing for high-sensitivity analyses of a wide range of samples. As well, the speed of 3D measurements has been increased significantly. Samples in very low concentrations or in minute amounts can be analysed by making use of optional cells designed...
Combining fluorescence spectroscopy and “stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy” enables the imaging of single molecules with unprecedented spectral and spatial resolution, thus leading to the first “true-colour” super-resolution microscope.
The “Application of Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopy for identification of uranium minerals in the environment” is described by Eric Faulques, Florian Massuyeau, Nataliya Kalashnyk and Dale Perry. Uranium forms a large number of compounds and complexes, and these are most helpful in the study of uranium, its chemistry and transport in the environment. Raman and photoluminescence...

“Optical spectroscopy in therapy response monitoring: an awakening giant” by Arja Kullaa, Surya Singh, Jopi Mikkonen and Arto Koistinen looks at the important advances made by optical spectroscopy techniques, such as diffuse optical spectroscopic imaging (DOSI), Raman, diffuse reflectance and fluorescence spectroscopy, in changing how cancer is managed in patients. The ability to repeatedly...
Orthogonal spectroscopic techniques for the early developability assessment of therapeutic protein candidates” are described by Patrick Garidel, Anne Karow and Michaela Blech. Due to its cost and time implications, in the early development phase of drug discovery the use of othogonal techniques, based on different physical observables, is important for correct decision-making.
Praveen Ashok and Kishan Dholakia of St Andrews University, UK, describe the scope of optofluidic devices that can be implemented using the waveguide confined Raman spectroscopy (WCRS) technique they have developed. I am particularly impressed by the sample size of whisky shown in Figure 2—true Scottish style!
In the pharmaceutical industry, biologicals are of increasing interest due to their high therapeutic benefits. Amongst many other questions, the stability of new canditates is of great importance. Patrick Garidel describes this in “Right angle light scattering protein thermostability screening: from research to development”. The ability of this and other fluorescence-based techniques to detect...
