Researchers are interested in the impact of gene expression and protein function not only at the cellular level but also within whole tissues, organs and even organisms. Hence organisms like C elegans, Drosophila, Zebra fish, Xenopus, Mouse or the plant Arabidopsis are used as biological models for in vivo studies in a vast field of research applications. The introduction of the naturally fluorescent protein makers, such as Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP),...Read More

You can analyze concentrations of rare earth metals (REEs) with the SciAps Z-300 handheld LIBS.
In a just-released publication in Applied Spectroscopy, author Ben Manard and his Los Alamos National Laboratory colleagues use the SciAps Z-300 handheld LIBS to quantify levels of rare earth elements in a uranium oxide matrix. Los Alamos personnel need a method to perform rapid chemical analysis in a nuclear facility. In this example, the analysis was performe...Read More
