A molecule produced in the body when cocaine is ingested, benzoylecgonine, is essential in distinguishing those who have consumed the drug from those who have handled it.
Andor Technology has announced the launch of Sona 4.2B-6 — the latest model in the ultrasensitive back-illuminated Sona microscopy camera series. The product provides a balanced combination of sensitivity, speed and resolution, making it suited to the needs of challenging microscopy applications.
The J-1500 CD spectrometer allows measurements with high signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio in the vacuum-UV region down to 163 nm.
Combining image analysis with a 3D microscopy technique allows researchers to quantify new or little-understood cell biology phenomena, according to Swiss scientists.
Researchers have developed a technique that provides real-time images of biomolecules in living cells — without the need for labels or contrast agents.
The IR VIVO system from Photon etc. is a turnkey hyperspectral preclinical imager optimised for imaging in the second biological window of the near-infrared (NIR-II)/short-wave infrared (SWIR) range from 900–1620 nm.
Researchers have shown how a standard microscope can be adapted to provide even more information, thanks to the use of an innovative optical component and a reconstruction algorithm.
The ImageXpress Micro Confocal High-Content Imaging System, from Molecular Devices, is a scalable, high-performance, high-content screening solution that is designed to allow users to capture more data at greater depths for 3D and thick tissue samples.
A simple benchtop device for measuring the kinetics of gas-producing reactions provides accurate reaction profiles with over 3000 measurements.
US researchers have identified brain circuitry differences that might be associated with suicidal behaviour in individuals with mood disorders.
The ability to perform a brain scan on stroke patients at almost any location could soon become a reality, thanks to the development of portable brain scanner technology.
