  • New sensor to detect molecules present in the tiniest of concentrations
    Using carbon nanotubes, a research team led by Professor Hyung Gyu Park in collaboration with Dr. Tiziana Bond has developed a sensor that greatly amplifies the sensitivity of commonly used but typ...
  • Real-Time Manipulation and Control of Nuclear Spin Noise
    Basel Physicists in collaboration with Dutch researchers have demonstrated a new method for polarizing nuclear spins in extremely small samples. By Monitoring and controlling spin fluctuations, the...
  • Unique surface analysis instrument
    The 3D NanoChemiscope is a miracle of state-of-the-art analysis technology. As a further development of well-known microscopic and mass spectroscopic methods, it maps the physical and chemical surf...
  • Open access to research publications reaching "tipping point"
    The global shift towards making research findings available free of charge for readers-so-called 'open access'-was confirmed today in a study funded by the European Commission. This new research su...
  • Better insight into molecular interactions
    How exactly atoms and molecules in biochemical solutions or at solid-liquid interfaces do interact, is a question of great importance. Answers will provide insights at processes in catalysts, smart...
  • Evonik opens analytical center for animal feed in Singapore
    Evonik Industries opens its first analytical center for animal feed in South Asia. Located in Singapore, this multi-million US dollar investment will complement the specialty chemicals company netw...
  • Artificial insect eyes developed
    Scientists in Switzerland, Germany, and France explored how the insect eye works and designed and built the first fully-functional miniature curved artificial compound eyes. The "CURVACE" project r...
  • Demonstrating contrast uptake by plants
    The contrast agent gadolinium, which is used in medicine for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), may enter the food chain through surface water. This is the result of an investigation by the BAM Fede...
  • Stabilisation of microdroplets using ink jet process
    Progress means that many things that are used in everyday life are becoming more manageable, practical and generally smaller. This also applies to biological and chemical experiments. To save mater...
  • Fast Detector for a Wide Wavelength Range
    Free-electron lasers are extremely versatile research tools because their intense, super short light flashes permit a closer look at new materials and even biological molecules; thus, allowing effe...
  • Different mass spectrometers - one (open source) software solution
    The release of the new version 0.8.0 "Dempster" of the open source software OpenChrom offers numerous new features for the users. Next to the native import of further data formats a support for qua...
  • A Breakthrough in Food Allergen Testing
    Romer Labs® and ifp Institut für Produktqualität announced the launch of their new AgraQuant® F.A.S.T. Allergen ELISA Test Kits with the fastest time-to-result currently available on the market for...
  • Innovative nano-nensors for multiple proteins developed
    Chemists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) have developed a new method for parallel protein analysis that is, in principle, capable of identifying hundreds or even thousands of different...
  • Scientists make cracks shine
    Every six years, a bridge in Germany undergoes a major inspection. "If a crack is overlooked in this test, it has another six years to grow", says Milad Mehdianpour of the BAM Federal Institute for...
  • LIFTSYS prototype machine for transferring biomaterials
    At the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, an interdisciplinary team of researchers is working on a method for transferring biomaterials and on innovative systems technology. Now the sci...
