Picoquant have introduced two new models from the PMA Hybrid Series, covering broad spectral ranges with high detection efficiency.
Edinburgh Instruments' FLS1000 is a modular photoluminescence spectrometer which can be used for both steady state and time-resolved spectroscopy.
Salmon is one of the most popular edible fish of all. Shops sell fish caught in the wild, but their main produce is salmon from breeding farms, the effluent from which can pollute rivers, lakes and oceans. German and Chilean scientists have used fluorescence measurements, high-resolution mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to answer this question.
Diamond Light Source has welcomed the first users to the hard X-ray nanoprobe beamline (I14), the latest phase III beamline to be opened.
THz laser system is helping Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory extend the frequency range of ESR techniques.
HORIBA Scientific has awarded Dr Ibrahim Cissé of MIT its annual Young Fluorescence Investigator Award.
Horiba Scientific have developed new software for their Aqualog to facilitate monitoring and optimisation of water treatment processes
Headwall introduces the Hyperspec Chlorphyll Fluorescence sensor which collects data from 670 nm to 780nm
Enhancing the luminescence of core-shell lanthanide-doped nanocrystals through surface modifications
Spectral and lifetime properties of the enhanced upconversion and downconversion mechanism of shell-enhanced lanthanide-doped nanocrystals revealed through luminescence spectroscopy.
Whilst the major components of food are usually non-fluorescent, many minor food components that affect its nutritive, compositional and technological quality are fluorescent. Given its sensitivity, ease of use and non-destructive nature, this makes it useful in many applications around monitoring food processing and in fundamental food research.
Fluorescence spectroscopy has been used to study the ancient pigment, Egyptian blue.
Edinburgh Instruments have installated one of their top end fluorescence spectroscopy systems at the brand new Vidyasirimedhi Institute of Science and Technology (VISTEC) in Thailand. VISTEC is funded by PPT, a petroleum company, with the aim of producing high impact research publications in the science and technology field. The University has invested heavily in state of the art scientific facilities and recruited some of the best professors and researchers, including NRCT Research Award and Outstanding Scientist Award winners.
The FLS980 Fluorescence Spectrometer and the LP980 Transient Absorption Spectrometer will be used to investigate and improve the efficiency and photochemical characteristics of organic solar cell technology. The group researchers are aiming to reduce global consumption and dependence on fossil fuels through improving the overall light-collection efficiency and simplify the manufacture of this type of organic solar cell.
Andor Technology has launched the Zyla 4.2 PLUS Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera offering a sCMOS QE profile maximising at 82%.
PicoQuant has released a new version of the system software EasyTau for the FluoTime 300.
This product focus is on Molecular Spectroscopy.
Shimadzu has introduced the RF-6000 spectrofluorophotometer.
Automated detection of counterfeit drugs using multimodal spectroscopy and advanced web-based software platforms
In the Tony Davies Column, we learn about “Automated detection of counterfeit drugs using multimodal spectroscopy and advanced web-based software platforms”. With the increase in trafficking of counterfeit medicines and other products, there is a need for definitive results from an on-site analyser useable by customs officers. The German authorities have commissioned the development of a multi-modal, transportable inspection system, including intelligent data processing and evaluation, for fast spectroscopic recognition of illicit drugs and counterfeit medicines. This is described in the column.
Application of Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopy for identification of uranium minerals in the environment
The “Application of Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopy for identification of uranium minerals in the environment” is described by Eric Faulques, Florian Massuyeau, Nataliya Kalashnyk and Dale Perry. Uranium forms a large number of compounds and complexes, and these are most helpful in the study of uranium, its chemistry and transport in the environment. Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopy provide complementary information and are powerful tools for direct speciation of uranium and identification of natural uranyl minerals relevant to the environment.
Orthogonal spectroscopic techniques for the early developability assessment of therapeutic protein candidates
Orthogonal spectroscopic techniques for the early developability assessment of therapeutic protein candidates” are described by Patrick Garidel, Anne Karow and Michaela Blech. Due to its cost and time implications, in the early development phase of drug discovery the use of othogonal techniques, based on different physical observables, is important for correct decision-making.
