Super Resolution in 3D

Super Resolution in 3D Interferometric photoactivated localization microscopy (iPALM), a refinement on PALM, lets researchers generate 3D images of structures inside cells. Resolution is much smaller than the wavelength of the visible light used. Like many super resolution microscopy methods available, PALM uses fluorescing molecules and stitched together multiple images to provide fine resolution. Now researchers added cameras and captured images in 3D. The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences describes using the technique to improve resolution. View the animation of the technique that allows them to determine the 3D location of a molecule to within 20 nm.

Spotting Pancreatic Cancer

Spotting Pancreatic Cancer Most people who develop pancreatic cancer aren't diagnosed until the cancer has already spread. Now, a spectroscopic method spots never-before-seen signs of early-stage pancreatic cancer. In the Optical Society journal Optics Letters, researchers describe a method called partial wave microscopic spectroscopy.

Cool, Cool Chromatography

Cool, Cool Chromatography Water is a universal solvent, but some analytical chemists prefer ice. This separationsNOW article says ice chromatography is a practical analytical technique. Researchers produce ice particles smaller than 10 microns wide. At temperatures just below freezing organic molecules mainly bind to the ice via hydrogen bonds.

Like YouTube for Life Sciences

Like YouTube for Life Sciences Seeing might not be believing. But seeing someone perform an experiment explains a lot more than a manuscript. That's the creative idea behind the online Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) — a peer-reviewed, PubMed-indexed journal devoted to biological research in a video format. By JoVE, imagine the possibilities.

Imaging with Really Big Telescopes

Imaging with Really Big Telescopes Future telescopes, with mirrors half the size of a football field, will need special components to deal with the light they collect. Merely scaling up current telescope designs won't work — because we can't build optics that size. A method of building new telescopes is discussed in a special issue of Optics Express.

Toxicology Database Speeds IDs

Toxicology Database Speeds IDs A forensic and toxicology database lets users quickly identify more than 7,500 compounds with high confidence. Based on liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) data, it includes software to search, edit, and create customizable content. A ranking and scoring algorithm assigns a confidence level for each match.

What's the Good Stuff in Olive Oil?

What's the Good Stuff in Olive Oil? Spanish researchers used semi-preparative liquid chromatography to isolate fractions of commercial virgin olive oils. Capillary electrophoresis and liquid chromatography connected to mass spectrometry checked fraction purity and composition. The quest: to find out what in virgin olive oil may combat breast cancer. Tentative answer? Polyphenols.

White Glove Ion Testing

White Glove Ion Testing Sometimes the residue isn't visible to the human eye — even in a white-glove test. But manufacturers need to know that their environment is clean — or what is contaminating the line. That's why ion chromatography to analyze residue is provided as part of a CRET (Cleanliness and Residue Evaluation Test) kit.

Finer Particle Characterization

Finer Particle Characterization All particles aren't created equal — but sorting sizes can be quite the trick. At Pittcon this month, Malvern introduces four particle characterization and rheology systems, including the rotational rheometer, Zetasizer APS, and Zetasizer µV particle characterization systems, plus a new Viscotek chromatography product.
