Tomographic imaging with faster results for geologists

Tomographic imaging with faster results for geologists
The new module for the ZEISS Xradia Versa 500-series of 3D X-ray microscopes (XRM) will allow users to acquire high quality images in one-quarter the time. ZEISS OptiRecon uses an advanced iterative reconstruction technique. You can make the optimal choice for your requirements: same quality images four times faster, or superior quality in the same amount of time.

A nuanced picture of brain system regulating moods

A nuanced picture of brain system regulating moods
As Liqun Luo was writing his introductory textbook on neuroscience in 2012, he found himself in a quandary. He needed to include a section about a vital system in the brain controlled by the chemical messenger serotonin, which has been implicated in everything from mood to movement regulation. But the research was still far from clear on what effect serotonin has on the mammalian brain.

Fluorescence imaging device receives FDA De Novo clearance

Fluorescence imaging device receives FDA De Novo clearance
MolecuLight has achieved a major regulatory milestone permitting expansion into the United States market. FDA has granted De Novo clearance for the ground-breaking wound fluorescence imaging device, the MolecuLight i:X. The device digitally captures and documents fluorescence information from wounds and surrounding tissue using still images and videos in real-time. This product is optimised for use at the point-of-care. It is compact and portable, with no requirement to use contrast agents.

Achieving an integrated optical artificial neural network

Achieving an integrated optical artificial neural network
Researchers have shown that it is possible to train artificial neural networks directly on an optical chip. The significant breakthrough demonstrates that an optical circuit can perform a critical function of an electronics-based artificial neural network and could lead to less expensive, faster and more energy efficient ways to perform complex tasks such as speech or image recognition.

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.
