Amyloidosis classification: MALDI mass spectrometric imaging

Date: Dec 15, 2017

Author: Steve Down

Scientists in Germany have used mass spectrometry imaging coupled with ion mobility separation to identify amyloid peptides in a proof-of-concept study that will allow different types of amyloidosis to be classified.

Big cat diets: Whisker isotopes track prey

Date: Dec 15, 2017

Author: Steve Down

The growth rate and stable isotope distribution of lion and leopard whiskers have been measured as a basis for mapping the diets of animals in the wild.

Methane mystery: Marine microbes X-rayed

Date: Dec 15, 2017

Author: David Bradley

Industry and agriculture generate vast quantities of methane, a potent greenhouse gas. However, marine microbes also represent an important source although exactly how is entangled in the "ocean methane paradox." Now, US researchers have used X-ray crystallography to explain it.

Hot attraction: Atomic interferometry

Date: Dec 15, 2017

Author: David Bradley

 Hot bodies attract atoms, contrary to what physicists had assumed. The proof is in the atom interferometry data from researchers in the USA. Steven Chu of Stanford University and formerly the University of California Berkeley, Claude Cohen-Tannoudji, and William Phillips used optical tweezers to observe the minute effect.

One flu over: NMR insights

Date: Dec 15, 2017

Author: David Bradley

When you catch influenza, the virus hijacks the inner workings of your cells to make copies of itself. The copies accumulate in viral buds that then break free from the host cell to infect another host. Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology have now used solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to obtain a clear picture of how these buds pinch off from the host cell membrane.

Polymorphic formulation: Chemometric tablet assessment

Date: Dec 15, 2017

Author: David Bradley

Chemometrics coupled to mid (MIR) and near (NIR) infrared spectroscopy, digital optical microscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, melting point, and dissolution properties have been used to predict the dissolution performance of different polymorphs in tablets of the widely used non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug mefenamic acid.

Chemometrics shown to fix complexity of herbal mix

Date: Dec 14, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Lianqiao Baidu pills are a popular traditional Chinese medicine made from a mixture of herbal ingredients, but up to now there has been no accurate way to analyse their quality. Researchers from Shenyang Pharmaceutical University in China categorised the quality of this material using extraction, HPLC, measurements of its antioxidant power and chemometric methods.

Journal Highlight: Understanding the molecular interaction in solutions by chemometric resolution of near−infrared spectra

Date: Dec 11, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A chemometric method for resolving overlapping analytical signals from components in solution based on the rotation of the loadings in PCA has been used to calculate the spectra of ethanol and water from the NIR spectra of ethanol−water mixtures.

Journal Highlight: Nerve detection using optical spectroscopy, an evaluation in four different models: In human and swine, in-vivo, and post mortem

Date: Dec 4, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Nerve and surrounding tissues in human (in vivo and post mortem) and swine (in vivo and post mortem) have been structurally compared macroscopically, histologically, and spectroscopically using diffuse reflective spectra.

Journal Highlight: Metabolomics toward personalized medicine

Date: Dec 4, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Metabolomics strategies and studies that focus on the discovery of biomarkers that have "personalized" diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic value, validated for monitoring disease progression and responses to various management regimens, have been compared and evaluated.
