Continuously emitting microlasers with nanoparticle-coated beads

Continuously emitting microlasers with nanoparticle-coated beads
Researchers have found a way to convert nanoparticle-coated microscopic beads into lasers smaller than red blood cells. These microlasers, which convert infrared light into light at higher frequencies, are among the smallest continuously emitting lasers of their kind ever reported and can constantly and stably emit light for hours at a time, even when submerged in biological fluids such as blood serum.

Microscope tech provides 4K and 3D visualisation

Microscope tech provides 4K and 3D visualisation
The Department of Neurosurgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is one of the first hospitals in the country to use the ZEISS KINEVO 900 microscope, a surgeon-driven, robotic visualisation system that merges the functionality of a surgical microscope with 4K resolution and 3D visualisation along with specialised robotic control.

High-speed video camera to find cures for deadliest cancers

High-speed video camera to find cures for deadliest cancers
The Rosalind Franklin Institute (RFI) has launched a project to build the world’s most advanced real-time high-speed video camera, the key to understanding techniques that use light and sound to treat some of the most lethal forms of cancer. Business Secretary Greg Clark launched the Rosalind Franklin Institute and announced its first major projects including funding to develop the World’s best ultra-fast video camera for imaging tissue with sensitivity and at higher resolution than any other instrument currently available.

Confocal laser endomicroscopy receives FDA clearance

Confocal laser endomicroscopy receives FDA clearance
Mauna Kea Technologies has announced that it has received FDA 510(k) clearance of the Cellvizio 100 series F400 and F800 with a Confocal Miniprobe, the CranioFlex, to be used during neurosurgical procedures. This marks the 15th U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance of Cellvizio and the first-ever FDA clearance for CLE applications in neurosurgery.

Light-delivery technique improves biosensors

Light-delivery technique improves biosensors
There is a continuing need for practical chip-based sensors that can be used at the point of care to detect cancer and other diseases. A way to inject light into tiny silicon microdisks could help meet this need by bringing down the cost and improving the performance of chip-based biosensors. The advance could eventually lead to a portable and low cost optical sensor for early-stage cancer diagnostics.

LED stool to combat back pain

LED stool to combat back pain
Sitting down for hours on end is hazardous to our health – whether it is in the office, at school, in the car or on the sofa. Backaches, obesity, diabetes and other conditions are the consequences of a lack of movement. It is important, therefore, to integrate dynamic sitting into our everyday lives. In a fun exhibition on the MS Wissenschaft science ship, Fraunhofer researchers are demonstrating how you can practice healthy back movements using special equipment.

Digital solution shortens wait time for kidney transplants

Digital solution shortens wait time for kidney transplants
Eleven years ago, Jan and Garet Hil’s 10-year-old daughter experienced sudden kidney failure. When no immediate family members proved to have compatible kidneys they could donate, the Hils had to enter the unfamiliar territory of donor kidney matchmaking. It was a harrowing experience. A kidney-swap exchange occurs when someone wants to donate a kidney to a loved one but cannot because they aren’t the right fit.

An unprecedented look at biological processes in living cells

An unprecedented look at biological processes in living cells
Scientists at the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) have combined two different microscope technologies to create sharper images of rapidly moving processes inside a cell. In a paper published in Nature Methods, Hari Shroff, Ph.D., chief of NIBIB’s lab section on High Resolution Optical Imaging (HROI), describes his new improvements to traditional Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy.

World's smallest optical implantable biodevice

World's smallest optical implantable biodevice
Japanese researchers describe a new implantable device no bigger than the width of a coin that can be used to control brain patterns. The device, which can be read about in AIP Advances, converts infrared light into blue light to control neural activity and is both the smallest and lightest wireless optical biodevice to be reported. For centuries, it has been known that chemicals can change neural behaviour.

The most detailed picture of subcellular dynamics

The most detailed picture of subcellular dynamics
By combining two imaging technologies, scientists can now watch in unprecedented 3D detail as cancer cells crawl, spinal nerve circuits wire up, and immune cells cruise through a zebrafish’s inner ear. Physicist Eric Betzig, a group leader at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Research Campus, and colleagues report the work in the journal Science.
