CE440 Video Elemental Analyser

Exeter Analytical has produced a new video that provides an informative introduction to the technique of elemental microanalysis that provides precise determination of percentage Carbon (C), Hydrogen (H) and Nitrogen in a sample.

The use of CHN microanalysis as a routine technique to provide a precise and accurate elemental analysis of a sample is widely accepted across many market sectors worldwide. CHN microanalysis is a powerful and relatively straightforward method for determining whether or not a sample is pure by providing a precise and accurate analysis of a sample's percentage carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen content.


Jonas Frisén about stem cell scarring

In a new study, researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden show that the scar tissue formed by stem cells after a spinal cord injury does not impair recovery; in fact, stem cell scarring confines the damage. The findings, which are published in the scientific journal Science, indicate that scar tissue prevents the lesion from expanding and helps injured nerve cells survive.

IBM and Swiss Hospital Test New Tool for Diagnosing Cancer

IBM scientists are collaborating with pathologists at the University Hospital Zürich to test a new proto-type tool to accurately diagnose different types of cancer. This work is based on a technology developed by IBM scientists called a microfluidic probe, which slightly resembles the nib of a fountain pen.

A critical step in the diagnosis of cancer is the analysis of a patient's biopsy tissue sample, which sometimes can be as small as a pinhead. Even with such a small sample, pathologists can test for the absence or presence of tumor cells and provide important information pertaining to the course of treatment to doctors.
