VIAVI has introduced a near-infrared (NIR) spectrometer for rapid, handheld material analysis. The OnSite-W is claimed to be the industry’s smallest IP67-rated, fully integrated spectrometer, designed for varied applications in agricultural, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries. Its wireless Bluetooth connectivity to a PC or tablet makes it suited to factory and field uses. Advancements in miniaturised NIR spectroscopy are opening more applications for material analysis across a wide range of industries. Measurements and material qualifications that once took days when conducted by technical personnel in a laboratory can now be done instantly in the field by nontechnical workers. Material characterisation applications include food, f.

Claimed to be the smallest spectrometer ever designed, the device could be used in potential applications such as assessing the freshness of foods, the quality of drugs or even identifying counterfeit objects. It has been described in the journal . In the 17th century, Isaac Newton, through his observations on the splitting of light by a prism, sowed the seeds for a new field of science studying the interactions between light and matter — spectroscopy. Today, optical spectrometers are essential tools in almost all fields of scientific research, telling us everything from the processes within galactic nebulae down to the characteristics of protein molecules. The majority of today’s spectrometers are based around principles similar to what Ne.

Australian researchers have uncovered a crucial link between dietary zinc intake and protection against Streptococcus pneumoniae , the primary bacterial cause of pneumonia. Pneumonia accounts for more than one million deaths every year, with the greatest health burden in countries where zinc deficiency remains a major social challenge — but until now, researchers had not understood why this increases susceptibility to bacterial infection. “Dietary zinc is associated with immune function and resistance to bacterial infection, but how it provides protection has remained elusive,” said Dr Bart Eijkelkamp, from the at the . Dr Eijkelkamp is part of an interdisciplinary team — led by Associate Professor Christopher McDevitt, a laboratory head at.

Dolomite Microfluidics Single Emulsion Systems are enabling reproducible production of monodisperse alginate beads, overcoming the challenges associated with traditional batch techniques. Controlled and reproducible generation of alginate gel beads is crucial for biomedical science and engineering applications that require biologically and chemically inert polymers, such as the encapsulation of drugs or cells.

But why were they interested in the rodents’ moods? These researchers wanted to understand the rodents’ responses to various stimuli. This can help researchers determine the best way to help people who are addicted or depressed. They would be able to tell if a treatment helped reduce the feelings of depression by simply analysing how the rodents chatted. Rat chatter is difficult to decode since rodents communicate largely in ultrasonic vocalisations (USVs) that human ears cannot hear. USVs range from 20 to 115 kHz, while humans can typically hear sounds from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Up until now, researchers have relied heavily on time-consuming, manual analysis of rodent chatter. The vocalisations are at such a high frequency, researchers had to s.

Human eggs begin to mature from the onset of a woman’s first period, meaning they decrease in quality from that point onwards — long before the woman in question is likely to want children. But what if there were a way to delay egg ageing, without losing egg quality? Researchers at the have now discovered the switch that may do this — in worms. They’re hopeful this breakthrough, published in the journal , may help women extend their fertility windows and maintain high egg quality into their 30s and 40s. Dr Yonatan Tzur and Associate Dr Hanna Achache, along with scientists at , studied egg maturation in Caenorhabditis elegans , otherwise known as roundworms. C. elegans has been very helpful in helping scientists understand human genetics, as.

Researchers at the have developed a new microscopy method whereby the unusual properties of graphene electromagnetically interact with fluorescing molecules. Described in the journal , the method is said to allow scientists to optically measure extremely small distances, in the order of 1 ångström (one ten-billionth of a metre), with high accuracy and reproducibility. Led by Professor Enderlein, the researchers used a single sheet of graphene, just one atom thick (0.34 nm), to modulate the emission of light-emitting (fluorescent) molecules when they came close to the graphene sheet. The excellent optical transparency of graphene and its capability to modulate through space the molecules’ emission made it an extremely sensitive tool for meas.

It was previously believed that the brain’s emotion and movement loops worked like parallel closed circuits, operating independently to relay important information. However, researchers suspected that there could be some influence of emotion on movement due to the observation that, in neuropsychiatric conditions such as depression, decreased physical movement is a symptom and could be linked to disrupted emotional processing and reduced motivation. But scientists did not know much about the connections within each circuit or how the circuits might interact. “We wanted to explore how emotion information reaches the movement circuitry in the brain by using a combination of cutting-edge viral and optogenetic techniques,” said Sho Aoki, co-firs.

These fields, and the explosion of advancements that are encompassed within them, have been instrumental to the constant and safe advancement of humanity. Biomedicine, for example, is a cornerstone of modern health care and has brought forth numerous recognised accomplishments, such as the mapping of . Work in these fields, however, is never done; for instance, smallpox. While the officially declared the devastating disease eradicated in 1980, essential research continues to this day to ensure the world remains free of this deadly virus. Clearly, any data that is being produced from research within these fields is of great importance to humanity. In fact, for many people it is quite literally life-changing. While striving to remain on the c.

Scientists from the have utilised an existing antibody drug to pull down the protective wall that surrounds tumours, potentially re-exposing them to the killing power of the immune system and immunotherapy treatments. Their work has been published in the journal . The research was led by Drs Francis Mussai and Carmela De Santo, who were studying immune cells called myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) taken from the blood of 200 adults and children newly diagnosed with cancer. These cells send out a barrage of chemical signals that shield tumours cells from the immune system and the effects of treatment, and prevent the activation of T cells that can kill tumour cells. When MDSCs are present in higher numbers the outlook for patients is.

Researchers led by have identified a specific gene they believe could be a key player in the changes in brain structure seen in several psychiatric conditions, such as schizophrenia and autism. Their work has been published in the journal and could ultimately lead towards new and more effective therapies. Though there are a number of genetic changes that can alter the risk of psychiatric disorders, one prominent change is called copy number variation (CNV) and involves the deletion of bits of DNA. Specifically, a CNV is where DNA is deleted from one of the chromosome pairs. Research at Cardiff’s has previously shown that people who have these deletions of DNA have a much higher chance of psychiatric disorder — but as the deletions often con.
