Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Milky, milky: Melamine test

The toxic, nitrogen-rich compound melamine is known to have been added fraudulently to food products, including pet food and baby milk, in order to spoof a higher protein content in food quality control tests that measure nitrogen ration. Now, Italian researchers have developed a novel SERS, surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy, technique to determine melamine in foodstuffs quickly, accurately and easily.

Raman spectroscopy was used to study normal and melanoma cells, and wild-type and mutant melanoma cells, to investigate whether the technique could distinguish between different types of cells, identify mutations and evaluate response to anticancer therapy.

Desiccated E coli: Hibernation in salt

A serendipitous discovery by the team working on the Raman instrument for the ExoMars rover mission reveals an interaction between microorganisms and salt in which Escherichia coli cells added to a droplet of salt water left to dry out manipulate the process of sodium chloride crystallization to create structures within which they can "hibernate". When the desiccated is rehydrated the bacteria are revived.

The first laser-written light-guiding systems have been developed by researchers from Montreal and the New York-based company Corning Incorporated with the aim of etching waveguides into the glass screen of a smartphone. The development could allow layers of sensors, for health monitoring, environmental testing and other applications to be incorporated transparently into the screen without adding to the phone's form factor.
