Breaking barriers in early detection of cancer

Breaking barriers in early detection of cancer
The ability to detect and isolate circulating tumor cells from blood could be a life-saving diagnostic tool for early detection of cancer and downstream analysis of tumor growth and metastasis. Researchers from the lab of Aman Russom at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden have engineered a microfluidic...

Carbotrace 540 was used to determine purity of cellulose extracted from Sea Lettuce

Carbotrace 540 was used to determine purity of cellulose extracted from Sea  Lettuce
Researchers from the Royal Institute of Technology and Karolinska Institutet in Sweden reported about an environmentally friendly process to obtain pure cellulose nanofibrils from the green macroalgae ulva lactuca. Cellulose was extracted by sequential treatment with ethanol, hydrogen peroxide, sodium hydroxide, and hydrochloric acid. A mechanical homogenization process was used...

Carbotrace-like Molecules allow highly detailed visualization of cellulose in plant cells

Carbotrace-like Molecules allow highly detailed visualization of cellulose in plant cells
A study from 2018 published in Nature Scientific Reports used a Carbotrace-like molecule to visualize the location and structure of cellulose in plant cells. Applying the molecule to thin slices of onion in a simple procedure resulted in highly fluorescent cell walls and allowed to obtain detailed 3D visualization of...

Carbotrace 680 for carbohydrate anatomical mapping

Carbotrace 680 for carbohydrate anatomical mapping
In a research paper published in Cellulose, our structure-responsive optotracer molecule Carbotrace 680 was used to demonstrate the potential of optotracing for carbohydrate anatomical mapping and spectral imaging. As an example - to show the utility and ease of the new technology - Carbotrace 680 was applied to thinly sliced...
