DXC 2018 and Birks Award

DXC 2018 and Birks Award

News from Denver X-ray conference (Westminster, Colorado):

Congratulations to Prof. Christina Streli on receiving Birks award!

Our team prepared two posters for the conference:

  1. Poster F-67: The Submicro-X-ray Fluorescence Setup on the B16 Beamline at Diamond Light Source
  2. Poster F-71: Detection of Gadolinium Accumulation in Bone by XRF

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.

All in one: Elemental and molecular information from the same slice

All in one: Elemental and molecular information from the same slice

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.

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!
