Brain's handling of low-priority ideas

A recently released study offers evidence that genetics plays a role in this back-burner setup, which has been shown to be abnormal in a variety of psychiatric disorders.

Early detection of Alzheimer's disease

Researchers have discovered that two drugs, the benzimidazole derivatives lanzoprazole and astemizole, may be suitable for use as PET radiotracers.

Neuron connections seen in 3-D

A team of researchers has managed to obtain 3D images of the vesicles and filaments involved in communication between neurons. The method is...

Game-changing nanodiamond discovery

A study shows that coupling a magnetic resonance imaging contrast agent to a nanodiamond results in dramatically enhanced signal intensity and thus vivid image contrast.

X-ray fluorescence spectrometer integrates standalone lab instruments

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc as added a new and powerful addition to its range of automated optical emission and X-ray fluorescence spectrometers.

Versatile mass spectrometry software solution

Research and production in an industrial chemistry environment often have quite different requirements regarding mass spectrometry.

Mass spectroscopy applications speed up metabolite analysis

The drug discovery process will be more accurate and less expensive, and metabolite analysis much quicker as a result of two novel mass spectrometry applications. Sean Ottewell reports.

Simple blood test could reduce repeat breast MRI scans

A simple blood test corresponding to the follicular phase (days 3-14) of a normal menstrual cycle can aid in optimal scheduling of breast MRI exams in premenopausal women with irregular cycles.

Chest ultrasound as useful as chest CT

Chest ultrasound can serve as a viable alternative to chest CT in the evaluation of paediatric patients with complicated pneumonia and parapneumonic effusion.

Medical imaging technique identifies common condition

In women with lower urinary tract symptoms, a medical imaging technique called dynamic MRI allows clinicians to diagnose pelvic organ prolapse.

Ocean Optics Spectrometer Detects Liquid Contraband

The spectrometers have been integrated into demo units of the AY01-01 Rapid Liquid Contraband Detector which uses Raman spectrometry to detect a number of liquid and crystal contraband substances.

Impact of Alzheimer's disease gene in healthy brains

A study demonstrated that genetic risk is expressed in the brains of even those who are healthy, but carry some risk for Alzheimer's Disease.

Hi-res desktop imaging tool

Phenom is a high resolution desktop imaging tool with an optical camera for never-lost navigation and a high quality electron microscope for detailed imaging.

Ocean Optics' NIRQuest Spectrometer

NIRQuest from Ocean Optics is a fibre optic near-infrared spectrometer easily adaptable for cost-effective on-line process control measurements from 900-2500 nm.

PET imaging response a prognostic factor

A rapid decline in metabolic activity on a PET scan after radiation therapy for non-small cell lung cancer is correlated with good local tumour control, according to a study.

Mobile microscopes illuminate the brain

Scientists have developed a way of actually watching the activity of many brain cells simultaneously in an animal that is free to move around the environment.

Unlocking Mysteries of the Brain with PET

Inflammatory response of brain cells could tell researchers more about why certain neurologic disorders, such as migraine headaches and psychosis in schizophrenic patients, occur and provide insight into how to best treat them.

Surface dissolution imaging

The SDI300 is a unique UV area imaging detector which enables quantitative imaging of surface phenomena of a diverse range of substances including APIs, formulations, gels, liquids, stents and patches.

Concurrent imaging of metabolic and electric signals

Cardiac rhythm disorders can result from disturbances in cardiac metabolism and these metabolic changes are tightly linked with specific cardiac electrophysiology abnormalities.
