The findings, achieved using a combination of fluorescence techniques, may help explain the persistence of some infected cells after drug therapy and and relapses in complex diseases such as cancer.
The functional near-infrared spectroscopy technology is noninvasive and relatively inexpensive for use in neuroimaging.
A team of researchers has developed a new interferometric single-molecule localization microscopy method with fast modulated structured illumination.
The project partners will use the grant to develop a 3D printer and process dedicated to cell-scaffold application, enabling living tissue to regenerate itself and facilitate wound healing.
Information on biomolecules' precise distribution in cells and tissues can help to produce a better understanding of disease and inflammation processes, and show new strategies for treating them.
A grant from the National Institutes of Health will support the pursuit of optical imaging technologies that can identify treatment-resistant tumors early in the treatment process.
Cytek Biosciences has received approval from the China National Medical Products Administration for its Northern Lights flow cytometer with 24+ color capability for clinical diagnostic use.
The graphene-based method allows localization of single molecules with nanometer resolution not only laterally, but also with similar accuracy along the third direction.
The method, called optical coherence refraction tomography, could improve medical images obtained in the OCT imaging industry for medical fields ranging from cardiology to oncology.
These nanoparticles can convert low-energy photons from near-infrared light into higher-energy green light that mammalian eyes can see.
The researchers integrated light manipulation devices called 3D plasmonic nanoarrays onto peelable films that can stick to any surface.
Optotek Medical specializes in developing optical and laser solutions for medical applications.
The fluorescence technique might be useful for quantifying the effects of tumor ablation therapy, where heat is used to destroy cancer cells, or in simply measuring for the presence of cancers.
The deep learning- and photonic time stretch-based approach could make it possible to extract cancer cells from blood immediately after they are detected.
