Optical devices get fishy

23 February, 2006

Scientists in the US have used the DNA from fish waste to make optical components. The team, led by James Grote of the US Air Force Research Laboratory, says that the material could be used to make optical waveguides, modulators and light-emitting diodes. They also claim that fish DNA, which is abundant and environmentally friendly, could outperform other polymer-based devices.

ImageQuant high performance imagers are available in four models, each designed to meet the varied needs of researchers in the life sciences.


Liver diagnostic technology

08 February, 2006

Resonance Health's non-invasive liver diagnostic technology uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology to provide a scan of the liver which is subsequently analysed to quantify iron loading using FerriScan's proprietary software. It is a novel technology easily applied to anyone with an MRI machine.


Gadonanotubes boost MRI contrast

23 December, 2005

Researchers at Rice University, the Baylor College of Medicine, the University of Houston and the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland have created what they claim is a new class of magnetic resonance imaging contrast agents that are at least 40 times more effective than the best in clinical use.
