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-...

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...
