One post – two papers

One post – two papers

This month we published two great outputs from our measurements on two different synchrotrons.

  1. Diamond experiments are summarised in M. Rauwolf, A. Turyanskaya, D. Ingerle, N. Szoboszlai, I. Pape, A. Malandain, O. Fox, L. Hahn, K. Sawhney, C. Streli: “Characterization of a submicro-X-ray fluorescence setup on the B16 beamline at Diamond Light Source“; Journal of Synchrotron Radiation, 25 (2018), 1 – 2.
  2. Elettra beamtimes reported in L. Perneczky, M. Rauwolf, D. Ingerle, D. Eichert, F. Brigidi, W. Jark, S. Bjeoumikhova, G. Pepponi, P. Wobrauschek, C. Streli, A. Turyanskaya: “Temporary implementation and testing of a confocal SR-μXRF system forbone analysis at the X-ray Fluorescence beamline at Elettra“; Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A, 897 (2018), 114 – 119.

Another Denver X-ray Conference, another Poster Award

Another Denver X-ray Conference, another Poster Award

We attended this years Denver X-ray Conference in Big Sky, Montana from 31 July to 4 August.

This year we contributed with the following talks:

  • Multimodal Imaging of Biological Samples: Correlation of μXRF with MALDI-MSI and with LA-ICP-MS (A.Turyanskaya et al.)
  • Zinc (Zn) and Lead (Pb) Accumulation in the Tidemark of Articular Cartilage with High-resolution micro-XRF (M. Rauwolf et al.)

and posters:

  • XRF Poster Award - DXC 2017

    XRF Poster Award 2017 – for the poster “Investigation of the Local Manganese Distribution in Bone in Female and Male Osteoporosis Compared to Healthy Controls”

    F-58 Novel Clustering Approach for the Segmentation of Elemental Distributions in Human Bone

  • F-69 Implementation of a Confocal SR-microXRF System for Bone Analysis at the X-ray Fluorescence Beam Line at Elettra
  • F-70 Investigation of the Local Manganese Distribution in Bone in Female and Male Osteoporosis Compared to Healthy Controls

On May beamtimes at BESSY II

On May beamtimes at BESSY II

We were once again measuring at BESSY II. From 1.5-7.5. 2017 we measured our samples with a confocal microXRF setup at the mySpot. From 8.5-11-5.2017 we did XANES (X-ray absorption near-edge structure) measurements at the neighboring BAMline.

While being at BESSY II, we were interviewed for the HZB magazine “Lichtblick”. The resulting article can be found here: https://goo.gl/3n33M8 (page 3, in German).

TEMA-16

TEMA-16

Latest news from St. Petersburg! Anna Turyanskaya just delivered the talk “Elemental bioimaging in bone by µXRF” at 16th International Symposium on Trace Elements in Man and Animals (TEMA-16).Earlier this week, Dr. A. Pejovic-Milic (Ryerson Univerisity, Canada) presented the first results of joint project with our group – poster “Elemental mapping in rat bones treated with strontium ranelate and strontium citrate using µXRF”.

26th Seminar Activation Analysis and Gamma Spectroscopy (SAAGAS 26) and Presentation Award

26th Seminar Activation Analysis and Gamma Spectroscopy (SAAGAS 26) and Presentation Award

SAAGAS 26

The Seminar Activation Analysis and Gamma Spectroscopy (SAAGAS 26), took place on 19-22 February in TU Wien, Vienna, Austria. Our group from Atominstitut contributed to the Seminar 2  oral presentations, as well as 5 posters – and three of the posters were devoted to biological samples:

  • Total X-ray reflection spectrometry of black tea and herbal infusions
  • μXRF spectrometer of Atominstitut in bio-imaging application
  • Confocal μXRF spectrometer for low to high Z element analysis

We’re very delighted to share, that the talk of Mirjam Rauwolf – “Synchrotron radiation micro XRF analysis of zinc in osteosarcoma tissue” received an award!

Congratulations!
