Direct detection of circulating tumor cells in blood samples

Enhanced Glow


Tumor cells circulating in blood are markers for the early detection and prognosis of cancer. However, detection of these cells is challenging because of their scarcity. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, scientists have now introduced an ultrasensitive method for the direct detection of ...


A way to determine the toxicity of nanomaterials


Official website of the Russian Science Foundation reports that a group of scientists from Siberian Federal University and Krasnoyarsk Scientific Center of the SB RAS has developed a bioluminescent enzymatic test system for assessing the toxicity of carbon nanomaterials. Its distinctive features ...

More light on cancer

Scientists created nanoparticles to highlight cancer cells


The group of Russian and French researchers, with the participation of scientists from the Lomonosov Moscow State University, has succeeded to synthesize nanoparticles of ultrapure silicon, which exhibited the property of efficient photoluminescence, i.e., secondary light emission after ...

The scientific benefits of Rudolph's red nose


We're all familiar with the story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer by Robert L. May (a class of 1926 Dartmouth alumnus) but scientifically speaking, what are the optical benefits of a shiny red nose on a foggy Christmas Eve? Nathaniel J. Dominy , Professor of Anthropology at Dartmouth, explores ...


Fruit flies have latent bioluminescence

New findings hold promise for expanded use of bioluminescence imaging tools


New research from scientists at the University of Massachusetts Medical School shows that fruit flies are secretly harboring the biochemistry needed to glow in the dark —otherwise known as bioluminescence. The key to activating this latent ability is a novel synthetic analog of D-luciferin ...


Symbiotic bacteria program daily rhythms in squid using light and chemicals


Glowing bacteria inside squids use light and chemical signals to control circadian-like rhythms in the animals, according to a study to be published in mBio®. The Hawaiian bobtail squid, Euprymna scolopes, houses a colony of Vibrio fischeri bacteria in its light organ, using the bacteria at night ...


New Screening Strategy for Epigenetic Targets: European ScreeningPort Forms Strategic Alliance with Hypha


Hypha Discovery Ltd and European ScreeningPort GmbH (ESP) announced a collaboration to evaluate Hypha’s MycoDiverseTM natural products library in ESP’s in-house epigenetic target assay panel. Currently, ESP provides access to Hypha’s MycoDiverseTM screening library to customers as part of its ...


New tagging technique enhances view of living cells


Scientists hoping to understand how cells work may get a boost from a new technique to tag and image proteins within living mammalian cells. The new technique, developed by a research team led by University of Illinois at Chicago assistant professor of chemistry Lawrence Miller, provides the ...


Ultrasensitive imaging method uses gold-silver 'nanocages'


New research findings suggest that an experimental ultrasensitive medical imaging technique that uses a pulsed laser and tiny metallic "nanocages" might enable both the early detection and treatment of disease. The system works by shining near-infrared laser pulses through the skin to detect ...


Photoactivable bioluminescent probe


A group of scientists led by Bengang Xing, at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in collaboration with Zhen Cheng and colleagues at Stanford University Medical Centre, California, have developed a photoactivable bioluminescent probe for imaging luciferase activity in live cells. ...
