Study sheds light on evolution

Research shows that human beings are biologically complex because of the way humans evolved to cope with redundancies arising from duplicate genes.

Pecan leaves' photosynthetic light response

Effective management of the tree canopy is of vital interest to pecan growers. Pecan trees require careful canopy management to avoid self-shading and to maintain productivity.

How humans see in bright and low light

Ever wonder how your eyes adjust during a blackout? When we go from light to near total darkness, cells in the retina must quickly adjust.

Nanotechnology: New blue light nanocrystals

Berkeley Lab researchers have produced non-toxic nanocrystals that efficiently emit blue light and could also play a role in long-term storage of carbon dioxide.

New frontier of modern light microscopy

A team of researchers has rendered three-dimensional images through at least six millimeters of tissue, allowing whole-body visualization of adult zebra fish.

Light Sensitive Sample Storage Lab Equipment

Micronic have announced a new datasheet that details their range of black tubes and capping products designed to ensure the integrity of light sensitive samples, even over long-term storage periods.

Biotechnology sheds light on ancient immunity

Structures from the human immune system's oldest branch shed light on a range of diseases has implications for treating bacterial infection and diseases.

Scrambled light, sharper image

An imaging method developed by Princeton researchers could lead to lenses that show all parts of the scene at once in the same high detail.

Nanoswitches toggled by light

Researchers successfully used ultra-fast electron microscopy (UEM) to observe nanoscopic structures at their exercises.

Shining light on tumours

A technique that specifically tags tumours responding to chemotherapy may offer a new strategy for determining a cancer treatment's effectiveness within days of starting treatment.

Dynamic light scattering

Non-viral vector development can be used for the detailed structural characterisation of a non-viral gene vector

Greener and cleaner fuels through evaporative light scattering detection

The use of evaporative light scattering detection (ELSD) within in the field of HPLC is continuously growing, due to its universal nature.

Network remote control tailors to the need of light microscopy users

Dr Manfred Kässons looks at a new package which provides network remote control for light microscopy applications.

The benefits of using evaporative light scattering detection in HPLC

Evaporative light scattering detection (ELSD) has become widely used in the field of HPLC. For non-UV absorbing compounds, ELSD is a primary choice since the principle of detection does not rely on the optical properties of the solute.

chemical analysis using deep ultraviolet light sources

Photoionisation lamps are compact long life devices that produce ultra violet light which can ionise many volatile organic molecules. They are primarily used in fixed or portable environmental hazard detectors and can provide ionising energies ranging from 4.9 to 11.8 electron volts (eV).

Evaporative light scattering detection: indicator of a mass response in LC work

Evaporative light scattering detection (ELSD) has become well established in the field of liquid chromatography (LC), writes Jeanie Watkins.

evaporative light scattering detector

Polymer Laboratories manufactures a new design of high sensitivity evaporative light scattering (ELS) detector for HPLC, microHPLC and GPC/SEC, the PL-ELS 1000. This detector represents the latest generation of non-selective auniversal' detectors.

Light scattering techniques support formulation development

Researchers develop methods to test protein stability under a variety of conditions

ecoVis krypton light source for VIS-NIR applications

The ecoVis is a compact, low-voltage light source (400-2500 nm) from Ocean Optics with built-in cuvette holder that’s ideal for basic lab measurements in teaching labs and other research environments.

Protecting light sensitive samples from degradation

To protect light sensitive samples, Porvair Sciences offers a selection of high quality, black microplates and seals that eliminate sample degradation, even over long storage periods.
