“Molecular Movie” Technology: Observing Life Processes at the Molecular Level

Researchers announced the creation of an imaging technology more powerful than anything that has existed before, and is fast enough to observe life processes as they actually happen at the molecular level. Chemical and biological actions can now be measured as they are occurring or, in old-fashioned movie parlance, one frame at a time. This will allow creation of improved biosensors to study everything from nerve impulses to cancer metastasis as it occurs.

Ultrasound Microscopy: Making the Invisible, Visible

Ultrasound Microscopy: Making the Invisible, Visible

An ultrasonic microscope emits a high frequency sound at an object, and the reflected sound captured by its lens is converted into two dimensional image of the object under scrutiny. Ultrasonic microscopes have a wide range of applications including determining the presence of otherwise invisible defects in components used in the automobile, aeronautical, and construction industries. Professor Naohiro Hozumi of Toyohashi Tech is developing the technology to monitor living tissue and cell specimens for medical purposes.

Olympus SC100 Digital Colour Camera

Olympus has introduced the new, easy-to-use SC100 digital colour camera for high quality brightfield imaging, especially where optimal colour reproduction and superior resolution are required.

The 10.5 megapixels sensor of the SC100 allows samples to be investigated in minute detail, particularly when using a low magnification objective. This frees users from needing to take multiple, high magnification images of a sample to preserve resolution. more

Revealing Mechanics of Blood Cell Membranes

Thanks to an interdisciplinary team of researchers, scientists now have a more complete understanding of one of the human body's most vital structures: the red blood cell. Led by University of Illinois (USA) electrical and computer engineering professor Gabriel Popescu, the team developed a model that could lead to breakthroughs in screening and treatment of blood-cell-morphology diseases, such as malaria and sickle-cell disease. The group published its findings in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. more

Correlative Video-Light-Electron Microscopy

Microscopical studies in biology have relied on two complementary microscope technologies - light (fluorescence) microscopy and electron microscopy. Light microscopy is used to study phenomena at a global scale and to look for unique or rare events, and it also provides an opportunity for live imaging, while the forte of electron microscopy is the high resolution. Observation of living cells under EM is still impossible. Traditionally light and electron microscopy (EM) observations are carried out in different populations of cells/tissues. more

First Nikon Imaging Center in Europe (Heidelberg)

First Nikon Imaging Center in Europe (Heidelberg). On 7 September the first Nikon Imaging Center in Europe was opened. The archetype is the institution of the same name at the Harvard Medical School in the USA. Now a corresponding facility for modern imaging methods in the life sciences has been inaugurated at the University of Heidelberg. more
