WITec’s fully automated, easy-to-use Raman imaging system, apyron, features enhanced spectral resolution in 3-D confocal Raman imaging, and extremely sensitive laser power determination with a mouse click. The automated Raman microscope system includes laser wavelength selection with subsequent adjustment of all associated spectrometer and microscope components to ensure optimized system performance.
Knowing how environmental signals modulate bacterial behavior could help combat biofouling and antibiotic resistance.
Scientists used a genome-wide approach to studying drought tolerance in plants and identified regulatory pathway that can be used to increase drought tolerance.
Current drugs block the actions of only about a quarter of known disease-causing proteins, but researchers have developed a technology capable of not just inhibiting, but destroying every protein it targets.
Fragile X syndrome is the most common inherited intellectual disability and the greatest single genetic contributor to autism. Unlocking the mechanisms behind fragile X could make important revelations about the brain.
According to a new study, women experiencing difficulty with time management, attention, organization, memory, and problem solving – often referred to as executive functions – related to menopause may find improvement with a drug already being used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Authorities in South Korea temporarily closed two hospitals amid persistent fears over the MERS virus outbreak, which killed an 11th person Friday, though health officials said they are seeing fewer new infections.
A research group developed an assay whereby cultured human breast epithelial cells rebuild the three-dimensional tissue architecture of the mammary gland.
The Solaris quantitative optical molecular imaging system from PerkinElmer Inc. is a preclinical solution for use in small and large animal studies.
Brain-eating cannibals from Papua New Guinea who survived a scourge of brain-eating disease decades ago are now providing some genetic clues about beating as-yet-incurable afflictions, according to a new study.
Scientists have characterized a small heat shock protein responsible for embryonic development in the Caenorhabditis elegans nematode. Presumably, a similar protein exists also in humans.
Umbilical cord stem cells offer clues to mechanism by which obesity and diabetes are passed to next generation.
A team of scientists has shown that using just three molecular markers will help clinicians classify gliomas – the most common type of malignant brain tumors – more accurately than current methods.
South Korea reported a 10th death from the MERS virus on Thursday, although officials say they believe the disease has peaked.
Whether a patient develops Parkinson’s disease or Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) depends on the shape of aggregates caused by a single protein known as alpha-synuclein, new research says. If the aggregates are ‘cylinders’ then Parkinson’s develops, while ‘ribbons’ lead to MSA.
