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:
- Poster F-67: The Submicro-X-ray Fluorescence Setup on the B16 Beamline at Diamond Light Source
- Poster F-71: Detection of Gadolinium Accumulation in Bone by XRF
Meet us at the EXRS 2018 in Ljubljana!
- Multimodal imaging of biological samples: correlation of µXRF with MALDI-MSI and with LA-ICP-MS (talk)
- Micro-XRF analysis of zinc and lead accumulation in the tidemark of articular cartilage (poster)
- Detection of Gadolinium accumulation in bone by XRF (poster)
Mirjam Rauwolf was invited to Jahrestagung FG Nuklearchemie, GDCh Scientific Forum Chemistry 2017 in Berlin, Germany and gave a talk on the “Synchrotron Radiation Micro XRF Analysis of Zinc in Osteosarcoma Tissue”. Hurray!
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.)
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”.
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!
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).
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.
More information about the Young-Minds-Session can be found in the flyer and on the poster below:

X-Ray Microscopy Conference 2016
Thanks to everyone who visited our posters in Chicago!
If you did not have a chance to see our work yet, we will be at the X-ray Microscopy Conference in Oxford – 15th to 19th August 2016.
We will present three posters on Monday 15th from 17:00 to 19:00:
Zinc Distribution In Human Bone: SR-Micro X-Ray Fluorescence Imaging of Osteoporotic Samples (S1-P3-05)
Exploitation of μXRF Spectrometer for Bio-imaging (S1-P3-06)
High resolution imaging of metal localization in cancer cells at the B16 beamline at Diamond.
Denver X-ray Conference 2016
We will be at the Denver X-ray Conference, which will take place in Chicago from 1-5 of August 2016.
During the XRF Poster Session on Tuesday evening (5:00 pm – 7:00 pm in the Michigan Room), we are presenting four posters :
F-62 Increased Zinc Accumulation in Mineralized Osteosarcoma Tissue Measured by SR-μXRF Analysis
F-63 Zn Distribution in Healing Osteoporotic Fractures Measured by SR-μXRF Analysis
F-66 Manganese Distribution in Healthy and Osteoporotic Human Bone
F-67 Elemental Imaging on Biodegradable Orthopedic Implants by μXRF
We hope to see you in Chicago!
Visit our talks at this years European Conference on X-Ray Spectrometry (EXRS) in Gothenburg.
European Conference on X-Ray Spectrometry 2016
On Monday, 20th of June from 14:30 to 14:45 M. Rauwolf will present our work about the “Zinc accumulation in mineralized osteosarcoma tissue determined with confocal SR-μXRF“
and on Tuesday, 21st of June from 13:45 to 14:00 A. Turyanskaya will talk about the “Manganese distribution in antler and human bone by SR-μXRF analysis“.
And don’t forget to have a look at our posters (Poster session 2, Tuesday, 21st of June from 17:15 to 19:00):
