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.

International Conference on Bone and Mineral Research 2015

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

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.
