The software allows you to go quickly from automated analysis of multiple sets of acquired topographic data to the reporting of precise results. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/for-rapid-accurate-reporting-of-results/ Wed, 08 May 2019 22:00:00 +0000 Albert Laforet, PhD James DeRose https://www.leica-microsystems.com/19622 Basics in Microscopy Live-Cell Imaging Graphene-Based Microbots for Toxic Heavy Metal Removal and Recovery from Water Heavy metal contamination in water is a serious risk to the public health and other life forms on earth. Current research in nanotechnology is developing new nanosystems and nanomaterials for the fast and efficient removal of pollutants and heavy metals from water. Here, we report graphene oxide-based microbots (GOx-microbots) as active self-propelled systems for the capture, transfer, and removal of a heavy metal (i.e., lead) and its subsequent recovery for recycling purposes. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/graphene-based-microbots-for-toxic-heavy-metal-removal-and-recovery-from-water/ Thu, 03 Aug 2017 10:27:00 +0000 https://www.leica-microsystems.com/19544 Stereo Microscopy Digital Microscopy Coming to Grips with Biological Information Through Flexible Organic Electronics: Developing Bendable and Stretchable Biosensors and Device What do you associate with the word sensor? Perhaps technologies delivering automation in factories and other production sites? That may be what comes to mind, but advances in organic electronics are now driving the rapid development of biological sensors that measure physiological signals when in contact with the skin, organs, and other parts of the body. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/coming-to-grips-with-biological-information-through-flexible-organic-electronics-developing-bendable-and-stretchable-biosensors-and-device/ Wed, 28 Jun 2017 10:14:00 +0000 Kuniko Yagura, PhD James DeRose https://www.leica-microsystems.com/18818 EM Sample Preparation Ultra-thin Carbon Support Films for Improved STEM-EELS Analysis of Nanoparticles Application Note for Leica EM ACE600 - Recent developments in aberration corrected transmission electron microscopes as well as further improvements in monochromaters and spectrometers have pushed the attainable energy resolution for Electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) to 100 meV and beyond. STEM-EELS of individual nanomaterials can be challenging due the necessity of a support film. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/ultra-thin-carbon-support-films-for-improved-stem-eels-analysis-of-nanoparticles/ Wed, 21 Sep 2016 11:27:00 +0000 PhD Frédéric Leroux https://www.leica-microsystems.com/18820 EM Sample Preparation Ways to Reveal More from your Samples: Ultra-Thin Carbon Films Application Note for Leica EM ACE600 - Much of the battle involved in obtaining good transmission electron microscopy data is in the specimen preparation itself. Even though some nanomaterials are already electron transparent (e.g. nanoparticles and proteins) and often do not require further thinning procedures, they need to be dispersed onto thin support films. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/ways-to-reveal-more-from-your-samples-ultra-thin-carbon-films/ Wed, 21 Sep 2016 11:23:00 +0000 PhD Frédéric Leroux, Jan de Weert https://www.leica-microsystems.com/14796 Super-Resolution Multilayered Polyelectrolyte Microcapsules: Interaction with the Enzyme Cytochrome C Oxidase Cell-sized polyelectrolyte capsules functionalized with a redox-driven proton pump protein were assembled for the first time. The interaction of polyelectrolyte microcapsules, fabricated by electrostatic layer-by-layer assembly, with cytochrome c oxidase molecules was investigated. We found that the cytochrome c oxidase retained its functionality, that the functionalized microcapsules interacting with cytochrome c oxidase were permeable and that the permeability characteristics of the microcapsule shell depend on the shell components. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/multilayered-polyelectrolyte-microcapsules-interaction-with-the-enzyme-cytochrome-c-oxidase/ Tue, 05 May 2015 17:31:00 +0000
