Conference SARX2018 + paper

Conference SARX2018 + paper

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.

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.

A new year and a new publication

A new year and a new publication

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.

Our new paper compares a confocal and  a color X-ray camera setup. It will be published in the January 2017 issue of the Journal of  Synchrotron Radiation. You can already read it online if you follow this link.

Beamtime at Elettra Synchrotron and Paper Announcement

Beamtime at Elettra Synchrotron and Paper Announcement

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. 

Successful beamtime = happy team
