Researchers Extend Electron Spin In Diamond For Incredibly Tiny Magnetic Detectors
2013-05-10 10:18:01

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory From brain to heart to stomach, the bodies of humans and animals generate weak magnetic fields that a supersensitive detector could use to pinpoint illnesses, trace drugs — and maybe even read minds. Sensors no bigger than a thumbnail could map gas deposits underground, analyze chemicals, and pinpoint explosives that hide from other probes. Now scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy´s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley...

AMRESCO´s Fluorescent DNA Quantitation Kit quantifies double-stranded DNA in the low nanogram up to 5 microgram per ml range using fluorescent bisBenzimide H33258 (Hoechst) dye. Solon, Ohio (PRWEB) May 06, 2013 DNA quantitation is crucial to experimental design and interpretation of results, especially in sensitive molecular biology applications such as PCR, or for any comparative analysis of multi-source DNA samples. Although UV spectrophotometric measurement at 260 nm is the most...

Professor Weimin Chen and his colleagues at Linköping University, in cooperation with German and American researchers, have succeeded in both initializing and reading nuclear spins, relevant to qubits for quantum computers, at room temperature. The results have just been published in the renowned journal Nature Communications. A quantum computer is controlled by the laws of quantum physics; it promises to perform complicated calculations, or search large amounts of data, at a...

Berkeley Lab Researchers Unveil Technique for Easy Comparisons of Proteins in Solution A revolutionary X-ray analytical technique that enables researchers at a glance to identify structural similarities and differences between multiple proteins under a variety of conditions has been developed by researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)´s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). As a demonstration, the researchers used this technique to gain valuable new...

Scientists Develop Breathalyzer That Can ‘Smell’ Drugs On Your Breath
2013-04-26 16:04:36

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online For years, roadside breathalyzer tests have been an accurate and effective way to determine the blood alcohol level of a motorist and new research from the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden shows a similar device could be used to detect blood levels of cocaine, amphetamines, and cannabis. Driving under the influence of illegal drugs has been against the law in most states and the new device could pave the way for a...

NASA To Robert Green, light contains more than meets the eye: It contains fingerprints of materials that can be detected by sensors that capture the unique set of reflected wavelengths. Scientists have used the technique, called imaging spectroscopy, to learn about water on the moon, minerals on Mars and the composition of exoplanets. Green's favorite place to apply the technique, however, is right here on the chemically rich Earth, which is just what he and colleagues achieved this spring...
