Sanguine rheology: Blood that's not so thick

Date: Mar 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

The failure of blood to clot, or coagulate, following serious bodily trauma or a surgical procedure is one of the leading causes of preventable death in patients. Now, a new optical device based on laser speckle rheology requires only a drop or two of blood and a few minutes to measure the key coagulation parameters that can guide medical decisions about how to proceed in the emergency room or operating theatre.

Fuel fraud: Succumbs to SERS system

Date: Feb 3, 2014

Author:

The details of a patented, stable silver nano-colloid material for use in surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) have been reported by researchers from the University of Lincoln, UK. The system has already demonstrated its utility in portable instrumentation for the identification of fuel fraud.

Journal Highlight: Structural properties of mirrored carbon spirals as revealed by SEM and micro-Raman spectroscopy

Date: Jan 6, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A novel type of iron–carbon composite nano-structure in which graphitic arms encapsulate the iron core entirely has been characterised by SEM and micro-Raman spectroscopy.

Remote mismatch: Sensing opportunities

Date: Jan 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Bi-directional coherent Raman scattering for remote sensing applications might now be possible thanks to US work into a unique optical metamaterial with a refractive index of zero that generates "phase mismatch-free non-linear light," wherein the light waves move through the material gaining strength in all directions.

Journal Highlight: Raman spectroscopy as a non-invasive technique for the quantification of melanins in feathers and hairs

Date: Dec 2, 2013

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Confocal Raman spectroscopy was used to quantify pheomelanin and eumelanin in feathers of red-legged partridges and hairs of wild boars and humans.

Enhancing silver: Hybrids for SERS

Date: Dec 1, 2013

Author: David Bradley

A relatively straightforward method for making core-shell silver-molecularly imprinted polymer (Ag@MIP) hybrids has been developed and initial experiments show it has great potential for use in surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) for ultrasensitive analytical applications.

Colon cancer: Spectral diagnostic

Date: Nov 1, 2013

Author: David Bradley

Researchers in Germany have developed a new use for Raman spectroscopy to support pathologists in the diagnosis of cancer. Writing in two parallel papers in the Journal of Biophotonics and the Analyst they compared conventional procedures for detecting colon cancer with their label-free spectroscopic histopathology method.
