By Hoppe, Adam D Shorte, Spencer L; Swanson, Joel A; Heintzmann, Rainer ABSTRACT Analysis of cellular pathways requires concentration measurements of dynamically interacting molecules within the three- dimensional (3D) space of single living cells. Forster resonance energy transfer (FRET) microscopy from widefield, from confocal, and potentially from superresolution microscopes can access this information; however, these measurements are distorted by the inherent 3D blurring of optical...

Imagine a technology that would not only provide a green and renewable source of electrical energy, but could also help scrub the atmosphere of excessive carbon dioxide resulting from the burning of fossil fuels. That's the promise of artificial versions of photosynthesis, the process by which green plants have been converting solar energy into electrochemical energy for millions of years. To get there, however, scientists need a far better understanding of how nature does it, starting with...

Microfabricated optical tweezer has the potential to make biological and microfluidic force measurements in integrated systems such as microfluidic chipsResearchers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) demonstrated a new type of optical tweezer with the potential to make biological and microfluidic force measurements in integrated systems such as microfluidic chips. The tweezer, consisting of a Fresnel Zone Plate microfabricated on a glass slide, has the ability to...

Veeco Instruments Inc. (Nasdaq: VECO), a leading provider of instrumentation to the nanoscience community, today announced that its new BioScope™ II Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) is aiding in advanced biophysics research at the University of Pennsylvania. The university's Nano-Bio Interface Center, based in Philadelphia, focuses on research at the intersection of biology and nanotechnology -- how the science of "small" can have a positive impact on human disease and treatment....

Berkeley -- Rounding up wayward cells and particles on a microscope slide can be as difficult as corralling wild horses on the range, particularly if there's a need to separate a single individual from the group. But now, a new device developed by University of California, Berkeley, engineers, and dubbed an "optoelectronic tweezer," will enable researchers to easily manipulate large numbers of single cells and particles using optical images projected onto a glass slide coated with...

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A University at Buffalo scientist created a stir in 2003 when he announced a much faster, more precise and far less expensive method of obtaining nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) data to map a protein's atomic structure. Genomics researchers were fascinated, but some also were a bit skeptical. Not anymore. In the current issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Thomas A. Szyperski, Ph.D., UB professor of chemistry, and a team of structural genomics...
