Latest Fluorescence Stories
Researchers are looking to white-light quantum dots as the future of lighting. White-light quantum dots are ultra-small fluorescent beads of cadmium selenide that are able to convert blue light produced by an LED into a warm white light similar to an incandescent light.
UVOST® allows rapid screening of most petroleum-based light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPLs). Fargo, ND (PRWEB) May 04, 2012
Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology and University of California San Francisco have advanced scientists' ability to view a clear picture of a single cellular structure in motion.
H-Series LED high bay is designed to replace HID or fluorescent lighting systems in commercial and industrial applications Boulder, CO (PRWEB) April 17, 2012
A glow coming from the glassy shell of microscopic marine algae called diatoms could someday help us detect chemicals and other substances in water samples.
Scientists have designed a molecule which, in living cells, emits turquoise light three times brighter than possible until recently. This improves the sensitivity of cellular imaging, a technique where biological processes inside a living organism are imaged at high resolution.
As nanotechnology becomes ever more ubiquitous, researchers are using it to make medical diagnostics smaller, faster, and cheaper, in order to better diagnose diseases, learn more about inherited traits, and more.
Individual cells modified to act as sensors using fluorescence are already useful tools in biochemistry, but now they can add good timing to their resumé, thanks in part to expertise from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
