New Way to Image Single Molecules in ‘True Colour’

2015 21 Aug

A Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) team has invented a new technology to image single molecules with unprecedented spectral and spatial resolution, thus leading to the first "true-colour" super-resolution microscope. By delivering both spatial and spectral information for each molecule, this imaging technique enables new ways to... Read more

Combination of Imaging Methods Improves Diagnostics

2015 21 Feb

Researchers in Germany have succeeded in a breakthrough for the further development of contrast agents and consequently improved diagnostics with imaging using MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) procedures. Using a new technique called imaging mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS imaging), they were able to determine the tissue-related kinetics of the contrast... Read more

New Hyperpolarisation Agents: Sharper Images, Safer Patients

2014 06 Oct

A team of scientists from French and Swiss research centres have developed a new generation of hyperpolarisation agents that can be used to enhance the signal intensity of imaged body tissues without causing harm to the patient. Their work has been published in PNAS , the official journal of the United States National Academy of Sciences (NAS). Data... Read more
