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

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!

Beamtime at BESSY II and 66th Yearly Meeting of the Austrian Physical Society (OEPG2016)

Beamtime at BESSY II and 66th Yearly Meeting of the Austrian Physical Society (OEPG2016)

We will be measuring bone samples at mySpot (BESSY II, HZB, Berlin, Germany) from 12.9 – 25.9.2016 and we are hoping for a lot of new and exciting results.

 

After the beamtime, we will be attending 66th Yearly Meeting of the Austrian Physical Society (OEPG2016).

66th Yearly Meeting of the Austrian Physical Society (OEPG2016)

Annual Meeting of the Austrian Physical Society (OEPG2016)

You can meet us at our posters during the poster session on Tuesday 27th of September 17:15 – 19:00 (Boltzmanngasse 5, 3rd floor, in front of Josef-Stefan lecture hall). We will present the following three posters:

PT24: Confocal SR-µXRF measurements of increased Zinc accumulation in mineralized osteosarcoma

PT25: Confocal µXRF spectrometer for analysis of 3-dimensional spatial distribution of low to high Z elements

PT26: Total X-ray reflection fluorescence spectrometry analysis of trace elements in tea and herbal infusions

 

We might be running a little bit late though, as we will be attending the Young-Minds-Session (Tuesday 27th of September from 16:15, Boltzmanngasse 5, 3rd floor, Christian-Doppler lecture hall). A session created for students and as well as laypersons prepared by the ÖPG Young Minds (the representation for students, PhDs and Post-Docs of the Austrian Physical Society). Lectures will be held in German and are free of charge for school classes.
