By reducing the beam diameter of an X-ray free-electron laser to 6 nm, researchers bring the utility of these lasers for imaging structures closer to the atomic level.
The advantage is that X-rays can provide much greater resolution than ultrasound — on the order of tens of micrometres (millionths of a metre) instead of millimetres.
Pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers can now verify the identity of ionic salts in the warehouse in a matter of seconds with the Thermo Scientific IonicX portable X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyser.
Coronary CT angiography is a suitable diagnostic technique in patients with a low to intermediate probability of coronary artery disease, researchers say.
Scientists have developed a new X-ray method which allows them to see inside granular flows — and the findings could have a big impact on numerous industries.
CAMECA has announced the SXFive-TACTIS microanalytical instrument — an electron probe microanalyser (EPMA) with a touch-screen interface.
The tiny bubbles, known as liposomes, are commonly used in pharmacology to encapsulate drugs, making them more effective in the treatment of disease.
AXT recently completed the first Australian installation of an XtaLAB Synergy-S protein X-ray crystallography system from Rigaku Oxford Diffraction.
Analytical instrumentation provider AXT will soon be installing a Synergy-S single crystal X-ray diffraction system, manufactured by Rigaku Oxford Diffraction (ROD), at The University of Queensland (UQ).
Olympus's L Series Vanta handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyser is designed for users who demand ruggedness, power, speed and ease of use in a Si-PIN X-ray detector model.
The light generated by the Munich Compact Light Source (MuCLS) can be used to increase contrast in techniques that can be applied to real-world medical diagnosis problems, thus enabling groundbreaking biomedical imaging research.
AXT has announced its installation of a Rigaku Ultimate IV X-ray diffractometer at the University of Auckland in the Faculty of Engineering.
Environmental scientists have developed what they claim to be an accurate, rapid and inexpensive method for assessing metal-contaminated sites.
Adelaide-based start-up Micro-X has announced that its DRX Revolution Nano, a lightweight X-ray machine for mobile radiography, has received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.
SA analytical instrumentation provider Chrysos is developing a gold analysis process that is said to be up to three times more accurate than conventional methods.
