Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: UV poop test: Samples water

Contamination of water with fecal matter is a serious risk, especially in the developing world, for several diseases that are often lethal. Now, UV technology capable of sampling water systems to find indicators of fecal matter at levels thousandths or even millionths of times lower than those detected by conventional methods has been developed by a team of researchers at Texas A&M University.

A new in vivo screening approach to measure water resistance of sunscreens using UVA-induced fluorescence imaging was applied to several formulations containing different polymers and compared to commercial products for tap, salt and chlorinated water.

New evidence for the origins of nitrogen in the atmosphere of Saturn's moon has been unearthed by ESA and NASA funded scientists and suggests that the element comes from protosolar ammonia found in the cold birthplace of the most ancient comets of the Oort cloud. The discovery precludes the hypothesis that Titan's building blocks formed within the warm disk of material thought to have surrounded the fledgling planet Saturn itself during its formation.

Orthotopic tongue tumors and cervical lymph node metastases in a mouse model were clearly identified intraoperatively using a recently developed fluorescent EGFR-targeting nanobody, giving surgeons real-time visualization of tumors during surgery.
