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