Scientists Develop Breathalyzer That Can ‘Smell’ Infection
2013-08-01 17:32:16

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online No longer the sole the domain of law enforcement, breathalyzers are being used more and more by scientists who want a faster, less invasive way to assess patients. According to a new report in the open-access journal PLOS ONE, researchers from University of California, Irvine have developed breathalyzer technology capable of determining the severity of bacterial and other infections. In the study, the California researchers worked...

KIT Scientists Combine STED and RICS Microscopy Methods/Publication in Nature Communications The newly developed STED-RICS microscopy method records rapid movements of molecules in live samples. By combining raster image correlation spectroscopy (RICS) with STED fluorescence microscopy, researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) opened up new applications in medical research, e.g. analyzing the dynamics of cell membranes at high protein concentrations. This method is now...

NASA Scientists Use Satellites To Measure Plant Health
2013-07-24 15:25:26

NASA [ Watch the Video Seeing Photosynthesis from Space ] NASA scientists have established a new way to use satellites to measure what's occurring inside plants at a cellular level. Plants grow and thrive through photosynthesis, a process that converts sunlight into energy. During photosynthesis, plants emit what is called fluorescence -- light invisible to the naked eye but detectable by satellites orbiting hundreds of miles above Earth. NASA scientists have now established a method...

Wave Of Blue Fluorescence Reveals Spread Of Death In Worms
2013-07-24 08:45:45

Wellcome Trust The final biological events in the life of a worm are described today, revealing how death spreads like a wave from cell to cell until the whole organism is dead. When individual cells die, it triggers a chemical chain reaction that leads to the breakdown of cell components and a build-up of molecular debris. The molecular mechanisms of this are reasonably well understood at a cellular level but we know much less about how death spreads throughout an organism at the end...
