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!
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”.
