Controlling the TIRF Penetration Depth is Mandatory for Reproducible Results

Employing a highly flexible TIRF scanner has additional advantages. As mentioned, the system exactly recognizes at which laser positions (or scanner positions) total internal reflection occurs and, vice versa, where this is not the case. The knowledge of exactly where total internal reflection occurs and where not can be used to illuminate the sample in …

Order versus Disorder

In modern biomaterial design the generation of an environment mimicking some of the extracellular matrix features is envisaged to support molecular cross-talk between cells and scaffolds during tissue formation/remodeling. In bone substitutes chemical biomimesis has been particularly exploited; conversely, the relevance of pre-determined scaffold architecture for regenerated bone outputs is still unclear. Source link

Scientific Illustration and Animation for Research Scientists

One of the recent movements in communicating data in peer-reviewed scientific journals is the introduction of graphical abstracts. A graphical abstract is the summary of the main findings depicted in one concise illustration. It should help readers to immediately catch the main points or the take home message of the article. The graphical abstract is …

Fluorescent Proteins – Introduction and Photo Spectral Characteristics

The first and still one of the most used FPs discovered in Anthozoa is DsRed. The name is derived from the sea anemone Discosoma striata. DsRed has an excitation maximum at 558 nm and an emission peak at 583 nm. However, the first euphoria stagnated when structural information was published. DsRed maturates much more slowly than jellyfish …
