Another Look Finds Promising Proteomics Test is Not Biologically Plausible

...ter data were analyzed. A mass spectrometer is an instrument that can quantitatively measure the concentration of hundreds of proteins from a single sample. In short, it does this by using an electric current to propel ionized proteins toward a detector. The number of ions hitting the detector at each mass-to-...

Color-blind method opens new doors in DNA sequencing

..." Metzker said, "We have built a highly sensitive instrument for the measuring of fluorescence, because PME gives brighter signals and collects more of that signal by eliminating the need for a prism to separate the light into colors." Metzker is also seeking to develop a chip-based imager than could be used ...

New law for resolution allows unprecedented sharpness in fluorescence microscopy

... century, the light microscope has served as a key instrument to the advancement of knowledge. For biology, this statement is true even today, since focused light is the only way to examine living cells non-invasively. However, because of the wave nature of light, focused light is subject to diffraction. As ear...

UCLA scientists reveal how Nipah virus infects cells
