Scientists invent new method to measure surface plasmon excitations. The new method, called Plasmon Waveguide Resonance, utilizes custom gold thin films from Platypus Technologies. PWR can be coupled with Raman scattering to study morphology, composition and chemical structure of nanomaterials. LINK.
Researchers report new study of cell motility of Muller glial cells. The researchers cultured glial cells and transfected them with RNA strands. Using Oris Cell Migration Assay, they identify transfection factors that influence cell motility in glial cells. LINK.
