Journal Highlight: MRI by steering resonance through space

Date: Jul 21, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A technique called steering resonance over the object (STEREO) has been developed to excite magnetic resonance signals locally to demonstrate the feasibility of MRI with multidimensional spatiotemporal-encoding that can compensate extreme field inhomogeneity.

Insulin undone: Endogenous and synthetic forms measured in plasma

Date: Jul 20, 2014

Author: Steve Down

Natural insulin and its synthetic variants present in the human body can be distinguished by mass spectrometry following global immunoaffinity extraction, a technique that will be useful in clinical, forensic and sports doping settings.

Cocaine screening: DESI mass spectrometry for geographical profiling

Date: Jul 20, 2014

Author: Steve Down

The country of origin of seized cocaine samples can be ascertained by analysing the trace alkaloids present, according to scientists in Australia who developed a DESI MS method with a sample time of one minute.

On the dot: Quantum reproducibility

Date: Jul 15, 2014

Author: David Bradley

An international collaboration has developed a technique for creating quantum dots with identical, deterministic sizes as revealed by scanning tunnelling microscopy. The research could allow quantum dot architectures to be constructed with complete control allowing technologists to develop new nanophotonics and quantum information processing systems as well as enabling various fundamental scientific studies.

Pregnancy and phthalates: Inconclusive conclusions

Date: Jul 15, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Multivariate regression analysis has been used to investigate associations between reported food and drink consumption among 656 women in the first trimester of pregnancy and measures of urinary phthalate metabolite concentrations based on data from a multicentre cohort study, The Infant Development and Environment Study (TIDES). The conclusions, as is common with self-reported data, are mixed and new research is suggested.

Multitasking protein: Nucleophosmin 1

Date: Jul 15, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy has been used to demonstrate how one segment of an important regulatory protein, nucleophosmin 1 (NPM1), helps it to fulfil several roles, including tumour suppression, according to researchers at St Jude Children's Research Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee and the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology, in Cambridge, UK. The findings could have implications for the development of novel anticancer drugs.

Berylliosis: X-ray clues to lung disease

Date: Jul 15, 2014

Author: David Bradley

New clues as to why inhalation of dust containing the group II metal, beryllium, causes a deadly immune response in the lungs of some people have emerged from X-ray diffraction, genetic, molecular binding and electrostatic studies. The research shows that a single amino acid change present in one lung protein, HLA-DP2, creates a pocket able to bind beryllium and sodium ions simultaneously and trigger the often lethal allergic disease berylliosis.

Journal Highlight: Calibration using constrained smoothing with applications to mass spectrometry data

Date: Jul 14, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A functional data approach has been applied to define the calibration curve and the limits of quantitation from mass spectrometric data, drawing on existing smoothing methods.

Journal Highlight: A new approach for evaluating the water resistance of sunscreens on consumers: tap water vs. salt water vs. chlorine water

Date: Jul 7, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

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.
