Image correction software simplifies quantification of stem cells

Image correction software simplifies quantification of stem cells
Today, tracking the development of individual cells and spotting the associated factors under the microscope is nothing unusual. However, impairments like shadows or changes in the background complicate the interpretation of data. Now, researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Helmholtz Zentrum München have developed a software that corrects images to make hitherto hidden development steps visible.

Take another little piece of my heart

Take another little piece of my heart
Detecting the source of errant electric signals in the heart that cause cardiac arrhythmias, as well as understanding what causes them, has been a notoriously difficult challenge for both physicians and researchers. This is because the heart is difficult to study, but researchers at Ohio State University have come up with a new technique that keeps myocardial tissue beating and alive in vitro long enough to study using video cameras.

Liquid cooling systems optimise particle accelerators

Liquid cooling systems optimise particle accelerators
Laird has developed self-contained liquid cooling systems (LCS) that deliver optimal temperature stabilisation for more precise temperature control in particle accelerators like linear accelerators (LINACs) and cyclotron systems. LINACs and cyclotrons increase the kinetic energy of particles for use in a variety of applications, ranging from scientific studies on particle physics to radiation therapy for cancer patients.

Multicolour light controls gene expression in bacteria

Multicolour light controls gene expression in bacteria
MIT researchers have engineered bacteria with 'multicolour vision' — E. coli that recognise RGB light and, in response to each colour, express different genes that perform different biological functions. To showcase the technology, the researchers produced several coloured images on culture plates — one of which spells out 'MIT' — by using RGB lights to control the pigment produced by the bacteria. Outside of the lab, the technology could also prove useful for commercial, pharmaceutical, and other applications.

Metamaterial improves high field MRI scans

Metamaterial improves high field MRI scans
Scientists from Leiden University in The Netherlands and ITMO University in Moscow, Russia have developed a new material that improves the image quality of high-field MRI scanners. The material can be used along with existing MRI coil arrays, as it’s flexible and is not very thick, and so can be integrated near the coils. The material consists of a two-dimensional “metamaterial” of resonant copper strips, and a dielectric substrate stuck to the strip array.

Optic probes shed light on binge-eating

Optic probes shed light on binge-eating
Activating neurons in an area of the brain not previously associated with feeding can produce binge-eating behavior in mice, a new Yale study finds. When activated by light probes, GABA neurons in an area of the brain called the zona incerta induce mice to return repeatedly to feed, Anthony van den Pol and Xiaobing Zhang of the Department of Neurosurgery report in the journal Science.

Project to develop mass market UV LEDs for disinfection

Project to develop mass market UV LEDs for disinfection
Eco-friendly purification of water – UV light is already being used to kill water-borne germs but the light sources used for this purpose are still predominantly mercury vapor lamps. UV LEDs have so far proved unattractive for reasons of cost. The aim of the UNIQUE project funded by the Bavarian Ministry for Economic Affairs, Media, Energy and Technology is therefore to develop high-power UV LEDs for industrial use.

Improving medical imaging and patient outcomes

Improving medical imaging and patient outcomes
Since the 1980s, GE has supported research into imaging technologies at UW–Madison. The latest agreement, a 10-year, $34-million contract, began in 2012 to fund radiology and medical physics researchers, who work on campus with the company’s newest CT, PET and MR scanners. “We have relationships globally, but UW–Madison is practically in a class of its own in those relationships,” says Jörg Debatin, vice-president, chief medical officer, and chief technology officer at GE Healthcare.

Whole body imaging solution receives commercial version

Whole body imaging solution receives commercial version
Continuing a 30 year tradition of breakthrough skin imaging innovations, Canfield Scientific completed the commercial launch of the whole body, 3D imaging system called the VECTRA WB360, at the 75th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in Orlando, Florida. Designed primarily for dermatology, this state-of-the-art system simultaneously captures the entire exposed skin surface using 46 stereo vision pods and produces a single high-resolution 3D image.

LungVision Navigation System receives FDA Clearance

LungVision Navigation System receives FDA Clearance
Body Vision Medical has announced that it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market LungVision, a novel imaging system that enables accurate real-time navigation and lesion localisation during bronchoscopic procedures. LungVision, the first product based on the Body Vision platform, demonstrated outstanding results through multicenter clinical trials in the U.S.
