Lab-on-a-Disc Platform Combines Microfluidics and Raman Microscopy for Rapid Detection of Urinary Tract Infections

Lab-on-a-Disc Platform Combines Microfluidics and Raman Microscopy for Rapid Detection of Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary tract infections can quickly move from being a merely miserable experience to a life-threatening condition. Untreated cases may trigger sepsis, which occurs when the immune system, in an attempt to fight off the infection, inadvertently activates body-wide inflammation that can cause blood clots and leaky blood vessels.

Quaker Chemical Uses SEM/EDS Technology to Understand Corrosion Phenomena

Quaker Chemical Uses SEM/EDS Technology to Understand Corrosion Phenomena

Corrosion protection provided by metalworking fluids remains a top concern during the manufacturing of tubular goods. Since pipe products are vulnerable to multiple conditions that can lead to oxidation, corrosion can unknowingly occur in production or during storage. As a consequence, the pipe producer is at risk for significant financial losses in non-conforming products, scrap, and/or rework costs. [More]
Encapsulated Palladium Nanoparticles Improve Rate of Electrochemical Reaction in Methanol Fuel Cells

Encapsulated Palladium Nanoparticles Improve Rate of Electrochemical Reaction in Methanol Fuel Cells

Researchers at the Nanoparticles by Design Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) have developed a novel method by encapsulating noble metal nanoparticles within a porous metal oxide shell to prevent them from compacting. They conducted the research along with the SLAC National Laboratory in the USA and the Austrian Centre for Electron Microscopy and Nanoanalysis. The latest breakthrough holds promise in the field of nano-catalysis for the development of more efficient fuel cells. The study has been published in Nanoscale. [More]

Dresden Nanoscope Combines Microscopy and Ultra-Fast Spectroscopy for Precise Filming of Dynamic Processes

Dresden Nanoscope Combines Microscopy and Ultra-Fast Spectroscopy for Precise Filming of Dynamic Processes

To gain even deeper insights into the smallest of worlds, the thresholds of microscopy must be expanded further. Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and the TU Dresden, in cooperation with the Freie Universität Berlin, have succeeded in combining two established measurement techniques for the first time: near-field optical microscopy and ultra-fast spectroscopy.

Extremely High-Resolution Microscopy Reveals Effect of Lightning on Rock's Crystal Structure

Extremely High-Resolution Microscopy Reveals Effect of Lightning on Rock's Crystal Structure

At a rock outcropping in southern France, a jagged fracture runs along the granite. The surface in and around the crevice is discolored black, as if wet or covered in algae. [More]
UC Berkeley Produces Atomic View of Microtubules with Record Resolution

UC Berkeley Produces Atomic View of Microtubules with Record Resolution

Microtubules, hollow fibers of tubulin protein only a few nanometers in diameter, form the cytoskeletons of living cells and play a crucial role in cell division (mitosis) through their ability to undergo rapid growth and shrinkage, a property called “dynamic instability.” [More]
