European scientists are the first to use an atomic-force microscope to "see" the unknown molecular structure of a marine compound taken from the deepest place on Earth.
Researchers in the U.K. say that by combining a nanoneedle with atomic force microscopy, they can now perform a mechanical scan of the thin top layer of our skin to better understand its biomechanics.
Researchers stitch together more than 26,000 electron microscopy images to create a view of a zebrafish embryo that is 281 gigapixels with a resolution of 16 million pixels per inch.
Researchers soon will unveil an imaging method that documents developing tumors at the molecular level.
Engineers at Caltech say that their approach -- computing their way past optical limitations -- could bring high-performance microscopes to medical clinics in developing countries.
Princeton researchers say their two-camera approach offers the most detailed footage of a nano-sized particle to date, which could ultimately shed light on how viruses and cells interact.
A "sonic screwdriver" uses acoustic force to build tartan-patterned tissue with the potential to repair damaged nerves.
By generating a progressive series of holograms, scientists can watch sperm move and look for structural anomalies that make them less viable, helping to improve odds during in vitro fertilization.
A simple kit currently seeking funding on Kickstarter allows you to use your smartphone's camera as a 150x microscope.
