MRI performed on single atoms

15 July, 2019

Researchers have performed what is claimed to be the world's smallest MRI scan — a technique which they used to visualise the magnetic field of single atoms.


Tecan Spark Cyto plate reader with real-time image cytometry

04 July, 2019

Tecan's Spark Cyto live cell plate reader offers real-time detection and analysis of biological, chemical and physical events — capturing the maximum amount of data from every well, at the same time and under the same conditions.


Thermo Fisher Scientific Invitrogen iBright 1500 imaging systems

27 June, 2019

Funding to fast-track eye test for Alzheimer's

10 June, 2019

Using specialised colour imaging, cameras will measure amyloid beta in the retina many years before symptoms of Alzheimer's disease appear.


BioTek Cytation 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader with wide FOV camera

10 June, 2019

BioTek Instruments announces a wide field of view (FOV) camera option for the Cytation 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader. The wide FOV camera captures approximately four times the area compared to Cytation 5's standard camera, allowing users to capture larger areas of interest with fewer images.


Major discovery or 'fake news'? Don't let cytometry assays fool you

06 June, 2019 by Dr Christian Oberdanner*

When running assays on a cell imaging system, microplate reader or flow cytometer, can you be sure you are getting the whole truth?


Whole-body MRI may detect spread of cancers more quickly

21 May, 2019

Whole-body MRI could reduce the time it takes to diagnose the stage of colorectal and non-small cell lung cancer in new patients, according to two prospective trials with nearly 500 patients.


Imaging immune cells in the brain

16 May, 2019

Researchers in South Korea and Singapore have developed a chemical probe that enables live imaging of a type of immune cells in the brain, known as microglia, in a live animal brain.


Phasefocus Livecyte quantitative, label-free live cell imaging

01 May, 2019

Livecyte uses a modality called ptychography, which enables quantitative label-free live cell analysis of single and multiple cell types in heterogeneous cell populations.


This is what a black hole looks like

11 April, 2019

Astronomers have unveiled the first direct visual evidence of a supermassive black hole and its shadow.


Andor Technology ultrasensitive Sona back-illuminated camera

01 April, 2019

Andor Technology has released the ultrasensitive Sona back-illuminated camera for fluorescence microscopy. Featuring 95% quantum efficiency and vacuum cooling down to -45°C, Sona provides good sCMOS sensitivity.


Advancing cell biology with quantitative phase imaging

01 April, 2019

The quest to find high-resolution intracellular imaging techniques that do not require any expression of artificial genes has led to the upsurge in development of unlabelled techniques. One such field is that of quantitative phase imaging.


Imaging joint cartilage at a molecular level

25 March, 2019

Australian scientists have reported an advanced imaging technique that allows the condition of joint cartilage to be examined — right down to a molecular level.


Mapping the brain's immune system

04 March, 2019

A new map of the brain's immune system reveals that the phagocytes in the brain — the so-called microglia — all have the same core signature but adapt in different ways depending on their function.


NanoEnTek JuLI Stage real-time cell history recorder

01 February, 2019
