Lasers aim to replace scalpels in cutting-edge biopsy technique

To a patient, the analysis of a tissue biopsy sample to check for something like cancer may seem like a relatively simple process, even if it does mean giving up a small piece of flesh to be tested. The sample heads off to ...

Tiny droplets open the doors to in-flight imaging of proteins

For the first time, researchers have demonstrated the creation of a beam of nanodroplets capable of delivering a variety of biological samples, from cell organelles to single proteins, virtually free from any contaminations, ...

New method refines cell sample analysis

Researchers at the University of Zurich have developed a novel method for analyzing cells and their components called iterative indirect immunofluorescence imaging (4i). This innovation greatly refines the standard immunofluorescence ...
