Sweden: Calcium Ions
Why Loud Sound Impair Hearing
Most people have experienced that their hearing is impaired and the ear feels numb after listening to loud sounds. After a while hearing returns to normal. Swedish scientists have discovered that a tiny structure in the cochlea known as the tectorial membrane plays an important role in this process, by acting as a storage depot for calcium ions more

Organisms, cell structures and molecules made visible in absolute detail, experimental setups viewed from short distance and much more. Our gallery 'Scientific Image of the Day' provides a lot of exciting insights into the world of science — just one click away. more
Canada: Herbicides
Glyphosate May Have Negative Impact on Phosphorus Levels
A new research from McGill University reveals an overlooked impact that the widely used herbicide glyphosate may be having on the environment. The study focuses not on direct health risks associated with the herbicide, but on its contribution to environmental phosphorus levels, an issue that has yet to receive much attention. more

Redefinition of the SI unit kilogram - new White Paper
In May 2019, revised definitions of four of the base units of the SI will come into force. The redefinition of the "Kilogram" ensures a stable definition for the unit kilogram. However it also calls for explaining the background and benefits of this revision. METTLER TOLEDO is helping users to understand it better with a free White Paper "Redefinition of 1 kg". more...

South Korea: Ultrasound System
Researchers Succeed in Non-Invasive Deep Brain Simulation of Mice
Conventional methods for stimulating a specific brain region are highly invasive because they have to insert probes into a target brain. A Kaist research team developed a lightweight capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer (CMUT) and succeeded in the ultrasound brain stimulation of a freely-moving mouse. more
Switzerland: New Image-Processing Method
How Everyone Can Capture Ultrafast Phenomena
EPFL scientists have developed a new image-processing method that can capture extremely rapid phenomena using any type of camera. Their method, called Virtual Frame Technique, delivers better performance than any commercial high-speed camera and is affordable and accessible to anyone. more

Laboratory Technology in South Africa
The Analytica Lab Africa will take place for the first time from July 9 to 11, 2019, on the premises of the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg. Following its acquisition by Messe München and its integration into Analytica’s network, the event is set to continue growing in the promising market of Africa. more
UK: Cross-Species Partnership
Teaming Up with Mites Can Help Beetles Succeed Against Larger Opponents
In a study featuring a miniature ‘gym’ for beetles, researchers from the University of Cambridge found that beetles who consistently lose out to members of their own species have the most to gain by forming a mutually-beneficial cross-species partnership. The researchers studied the relationship between the burying beetle and the tiny mites that hitch a ride on their backs. more

Highly Permeable Polymer Film Could Enhance Extraction of Water from Gases
Removing water vapor from air and other gas mixtures, which is crucial for many industrial processes and air conditioning, could become cheaper and more effective through polymer membrane technology now developed at Kaust. more
RNA Interference
Engineered Tissue Model Could Accelerate the Development of New Treatments for Liver Diseases
MIT researchers have shown that an engineered model of human liver tissue can be used to investigate the effects of RNAi, helping to speed up the development of novel therapies. The researchers showed with the model that they could use RNAi to turn off a gene that causes a rare hereditary disorder. And using RNA molecules that target a different gene expressed by human liver cells, they were able to reduce malaria infections in the model’s cells. more
