We were once again measuring at BESSY II. From 1.5-7.5. 2017 we measured our samples with a confocal microXRF setup at the mySpot. From 8.5-11-5.2017 we did XANES (X-ray absorption near-edge structure) measurements at the neighboring BAMline.
While being at BESSY II, we were interviewed for the HZB magazine “Lichtblicke”. The resulting article can be found here: https://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/media/media/aktuell/print//lichtblick/200/hzb_lichtblick-32_juli-2017_extern_web_01.pdf (page 3, in German).
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!
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”.
