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!

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):
We presented two posters at the 43rd Annual European Calcified Tissue Society Congress (ECTS Conference) in Rome (14-17 May 2016):
- P114 Increased Zinc accumulation in mineralized osteosarcoma tissue
- P312 Manganese distribution in bone tissue by SR-µXRF
And we are very proud to announce that we won the young investigator poster prize with “Manganese distribution in bone tissue by SR-µXRF”.

In the beginning of May we took our micro-XRF lab setup to the Elettra synchrotron in Triest. It was installed at the X-Ray Fluorescence beamline to test if we could use it for synchrotron radiation induced micro-XRF. Our first results looked quite promising.

Hi everyone! We’re currently measuring zinc in bones at Diamond synchrotron in England. Happy to be here and share the picture with you!

We wish You all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Sucessful New Year!

We put some new info in the section Physics behind and we will return to You in the new year.
We are presenting parts of our research tomorrow at the International Conference on Progress in Bone and Mineral Research 2015 and the Annual Autumn Conference of the Austrian Society for Bone and Mineral Research (AuSBMR).
Bone Conference 2015
Venue: TechGate Vienna, 1220 Vienna, Donau City Str. 1
From 14.40 to 14.50 A. Turyanskaya will talk about “Synchrotron µXRF analysis of Manganese distribution in antler and human bone”
and from 16.20 to 16.30 M. Rauwolf will present our work about the “Distribution of Zinc in human high-grade osteosarcoma and healthy tissue determined with confocal synchrotron radiation micro X-Ray Fluorescence analysis“.
The conference takes place in Vienna, Austria from December 3 – 5, 2015. The complete program can be found here.
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.
