X-ray microscopic analyses of 2,000-year-old papyri fragments by scientists at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, has shown that the black ink used by Egyptian scribes was not comprised of purely carbon-based organic materials as previously thought but contains the metallic element copper not previously identified in such inks.

Noninvasive X-ray imaging of renal clearable gold nanoparticles in normal and nephropathic kidneys has advanced understanding of the nano-bio interactions while offering a new pathway to noninvasively image kidney dysfunction and local injuries at the anatomical level.
