Journal Highlight: Early detection of heterotopic ossification using near-infrared optical imaging reveals dynamic turnover and progression of mineralization following Achilles tenotomy and burn injury

Date: Nov 5, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Non-invasive near-infrared optical imaging was used to detect and monitor heterotopic ossification in mice given an Achilles tenotomy in combination with a dorsal burn or sham procedure.

Skin deep damage: UV exposure

Date: Nov 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Ultraviolet light damages DNA and cause proteins in the body to break down into smaller, sometimes harmful pieces that may also damage DNA, increasing the risk of skin cancer and cataracts. UV-IR double-resonance photofragment spectroscopy now reveals the details.

Journal Highlight: Assessment of crystallinity in processed sucrose by near-Infrared spectroscopy and application to lyophiles

Date: Oct 6, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The capability of near-infrared spectroscopy to determine crystallinity in processed sucrose was studied using a common set of calibration standards derived from binary physical mixtures.

Gas: Of the organic interstellar kind

Date: Oct 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

A carbon-based molecule that is not the usual fodder of interstellar dust has been detected in a giant gas cloud some 27000 light years from earth. The discovery offers a new hint as to the origins of the complex organic molecules that were the building blocks of life in our planet's primordial soup.

Journal Highlight: Exploring bacterial phenotypic diversity using factorial design and FTIR multivariate fingerprinting

Date: Sep 15, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Bacterial phenotypic diversity of cultures of Staphylococcus aureus grown under variable sets of environmental conditions was characterized by FTIR spectroscopy, using different spectral preprocessing methods in combination with scaling methods in principal component analysis.

No more prick tests? Diabetes development

Date: Sep 1, 2014

Author:

Researchers in the USA have developed a way to use mid-infrared quantum cascade laser spectroscopy to measure blood glucose through one's skin. If they can successfully miniaturise the system it could be a boon for people with diabetes who otherwise have to regularly prick their skin to obtain a blood sample for testing.

Journal Highlight: Fast and nondestructive determination of protein content in rapeseeds (Brassica napus L.) using FTIR-PAS

Date: Sep 1, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Fourier transform mid-infrared photoacoustic spectroscopy was used to quantify protein content of rapeseed with interval selection data processing models providing accurate results.

Journal Highlight: Comparison of mid-infrared transmission spectroscopy with biochemical methods for the determination of macronutrients in human milk

Date: Aug 4, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A rapid method for the analysis of macronutrients in human milk using an infrared human milk analyser was compared with the analytical methods used in the by cow's milk industry.

Planetary water? No says astronomical data

Date: Aug 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Infrared spectroscopy has revealed that three planets orbiting Sun-like stars at distances of 60 to 900 light years from Earth are a lot drier than astronomers hoped. HD 189733b, HD 209458b and WASP-12b were thought to be ideal candidates for detecting extraterrestrial water vapour, but the data has come up dry.

Breaking Good: Detecting meth

Date: Jul 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Illicit methamphetamine abuse is now widespread as is the abuse of related, so-called designer drugs. Research from Italy published in the journal Angewandte Chemie shows that it is possible to detect these chemicals readily in water.
