In November 2018 Prof. Streli was invited to give a talk at SARX 2018 in Pucón, Chile (XVI Latin American Conference of Analysis by X-ray techniques): Elemental imaging of trace elements in bone samples.
This inspired our newly published paper “Elemental imaging of trace elements in bone samples using micro and nano- X-ray fluorescence spectrometry” in the Applied Radiation and Isotopes.
This month we published two great outputs from our measurements on two different synchrotrons.
- 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.
- 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.
In the collaboration with Institute of Chemical Technology and Analytics (TU Wien) we ran the project on collecting both elemental and molecular information from the very same slice! The methods employed – µXRF for elemental and MALDI for molecular information. The sample on which we tested the workflow could be easily bought on market – chicken feet (phalanx section was measured). Yummy!
The project is described in the paper “Multimodal imaging of undecalcified tissue sections by MALDI MS and μXRF” published by Analyst.
The XRF-Bone team wishes you a happy new year!
And if your new year’s resolution is to read more papers, check out the early view online version of our newest paper – “Increased zinc accumulation in mineralized osteosarcoma tissue measured by confocal synchrotron radiation micro X-ray fluorescence analysis” which will be published in X-Ray Spectrometry.
Great news from Italy! First of all, the needed improvements were made on our micro-XRF laboratory setup and we are having second wonderful beamtime at X-Ray fluorescence beamline at Elettra Syncrotrone, Trieste, Italy.
What is more, the paper “(Invited) ALD to Prevent Metal Transfer from Implants” (doi: 10.1149/07506.0167ecst), which is the result of collaboration with University of Brescia (Dr. Laura Borgese, Dr. Fabjola Bilo, Dr. Annalisa Zacco, Prof. Elza Bontempi, Dr. Michela Pasquali, Dr. Stefania Federici and Prof. Laura E. Depero) and for which micro-XRF spectrometer at Atominstitut was used, has been published.
Paper announcement – Atomic layer deposition to prevent metal transfer from implants: an X-Ray Fluorescence study
The paper “Atomic layer deposition to prevent metal transfer from implants: an X-Ray Fluorescence study” (doi: 10.1016/j.apsusc.2015.09.248, available online since 3 October 2015) is the result of collaboration with University of Brescia (Dr. Fabjola Bilo, Dr. Laura Borgese and Prof. Laura E. Depero). Micro-X-ray fluorescence analysis was performed on micro-XRF spectrometer at Atominstitut.
