Researchers use Functional Imaging to Elucidate the Role of Cellular Zn²⁺ in Human Immunity

An international consortium of researchers has found a new mutation in a gene harboring a reticulum-to-cytoplasm zinc transporter. The gene is called ZIP7 and it is responsible for the early onset of infections in patients. These findings led them to uncover the role of ZIP7 in B cell development. To elucidate the cellular function of …

Nikon | Sustainability | Reusing semiconductor lithography equipment to reduce waste

Reselling semiconductor lithography systems and refurbishing their lenses For almost two decades, Nikon has promoted the reuse of semiconductor lithography equipment to reduce waste. Nikon manufactures the semiconductor lithography systems essential to semiconductor production. After customers finish using these systems, Nikon buys them back, restores their parts and components, and resells them. Nikon launched this …

Confluency Check with PAULA Cell Imager

Many cell-based experiments require cells in a certain state. This can include their morphology, fluorescent protein expression, and the confluency of the cell layer. Researchers check their cells regularly to determine these attributes. Confluency estimation can be very difficult! This guess work is biased by every individual researcher, and can result in lab error. Source …

Affinity in Autonomy

In a rapidly transforming technological landscape, we are developing a vision for robotics that will enrich people’s lives and society. When robots have evolved so far that we feel like they’re alive, then humans will begin to feel an affinity toward them.

Extending Nanoscopy Possibilities with STED and exchangeable fluorophores

The idea of using fluorophores that transiently bind to their target was adapted from the single-molecule super-resolution method termed PAINT (Point Accumulation for Imaging in Nanoscale Topography) (Sharonov and Hochstrasser 2006)[3]. A key advantage of PAINT is its independence of photobleaching: fluorophores repeatedly and transiently bind to their target, while otherwise freely diffusing in the …
