Combinatie microscopietechnieken geeft twee keer scherper beeld

Onderzoekers van de TU Delft hebben twee bestaande technieken binnen de superresolutie-microscopie gecombineerd tot een nieuwe methode. Veel experts zagen het combineren van de technieken als iets dat technisch onmogelijk was. Met de nieuwe, gecombineerde methode kunnen onderzoekers de minuscule onderdelen van levende cellen beter dan ooit in beeld brengen. Dat kan onder meer leiden tot nieuwe inzichten in de gezondheidszorg.

Open Mind: Smart parasite detector

PhD researcher Temitope Agbana and Professor Gleb Vdovine from the 3ME faculty have developed a novel technique, which utilizes optical analysis of patient blood samples using automated smart algorithms integrated into a potentially low-cost multispectral optical imaging platform. With this technique, they aim at the development of a portable, field compatible, affordable smart optical diagnostic instrument for early detection of African Animal Trypanosomiasis and other Hemoparasitic infection in animals. A smart parasite detector for animals: automated, rapid reliable diagnosis which requires minimal human intervention.
