Optical Photothermal IR is a breakthrough technique that’s opening up new possibilities in life science and biological research.
Join us for a 2 hour online workshop on Wednesday 14th April 2021 at 1pm BST / 2pm CEST about how O-PTIR is being used in biological applications.
How Atomic Force Microscopy can be used in virology, including measuring biomechanical properties and virus-cell receptor interactions.
Bruker Micro-CT imaging is being used in a Biosafety Level 3 Lab, to find a vaccine and treatments for coronavirus.
New direct detection system for low-dose, single-particle imaging and cellular organisation and ultrastructure studies.
A scientific paper has been published using O-PTIR in Alzheimer’s Disease research, to study amyloid protein aggregation directly in neurons.
Cryo-EM has been used to generate the first 3D atomic-scale map of the coronavirus (2019-nCoV). This is a key step towards developing a vaccine and treatments for the infection.
How micro-tomography can be used in biomedical research for sub-micron 3D imaging to study zebrafish morphology, bone densitometry, tissue, histology and more.
