Researchers Determine Authenticity of Ancient Artifacts Using nanoSEM

Researchers Determine Authenticity of Ancient Artifacts Using nanoSEM

Geologist Timothy Rose of the Smithsonian Institution’s Analytical Laboratories is accustomed to putting his lab’s high-tech nanoscale scanning electron microscope (nanoSEM) to work evaluating the mineral composition of rocks and meteorites. Lately, though, the nanoSEM has been enlisted for a different kind of task: determining the authenticity of ancient Mesoamerican artifacts. [More]

Super Resolution Microscopy Helps Observe Hitherto Unknown Structures Within Cells

The invention of super resolution microscopy won this year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry - a revolutionary technique that literally has made the impossible possible. Thanks to a group of researchers at the Center for Advanced Bioimaging (CAB) the University of Copenhagen is right at the forefront of this revolutionary field. [More]
New Lab Device Gives Unprecedented Microscopic Look at Metastasis

New Lab Device Gives Unprecedented Microscopic Look at Metastasis

Johns Hopkins engineers have invented a lab device to give cancer researchers an unprecedented microscopic look at metastasis, the complex way that tumor cells spread through the body, causing more than 90 percent of cancer-related deaths. By shedding light on precisely how tumor cells travel, the device could uncover new ways to keep cancer in check. [More]
