Multiplexing Technique Enables Faster Completion of NanoMRI Scans

Multiplexing Technique Enables Faster Completion of NanoMRI Scans

NanoMRI is a scanning technique that produces nondestructive, high-resolution 3-D images of nanoscale objects, and it promises to become a powerful tool for researchers and companies exploring the shape and function of biological materials such as viruses and cells in much the same way as clinical MRI today enables investigation of whole tissues in the human body.

Novel Device Helps Capture Real Time Data on Behavior of Cell Membranes During Hemifusion

Cells are biological wonders. Throughout billions of years of existence on Earth, these tiny units of life have evolved to collaborate at the smallest levels in promoting, preserving and protecting the organism they comprise. Among these functions is the transport of lipids and other biomacromolecules between cells via membrane adhesion and fusion -- processes that occur in many biological functions, including waste transport, egg fertilization and digestion.

Transmission Electron Microscope Helps Spot Twin Boundary Defects to Improve Lithium-Ion Batteries

Transmission Electron Microscope Helps Spot Twin Boundary Defects to Improve Lithium-Ion Batteries

Most people see defects as flaws. A few Michigan Technological University researchers, however, see them as opportunities. Twin boundaries — which are small, symmetrical defects in materials — may present an opportunity to improve lithium-ion batteries. The twin boundary defects act as energy highways and could help get better performance out of the batteries. [More]

New Microscopy Technique Enables Selective Visualization of Individual Cells Within Living Organism Tissue

New Microscopy Technique Enables Selective Visualization of Individual Cells Within Living Organism Tissue

Researchers at ETH Zurich's Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering in Basel have developed a new microscopy technique that enables for the first time to selectively visualize individual cells within the complex, three-dimensional tissue of a living organism. The researchers have thus succeeded in capturing spectacular microscopic images, such as in the nervous system of a zebrafish larva, a preferred model organism for research. Motor neurons in the spinal cord can be seen in the researchers' images; at the same time, a single neuron with all its extensions is highlighted in another colour. [More]
