Respiration-like stretching of lung cells in cell culture model influences their reaction on nanoparticles

Researchers of the Leibniz Research Alliance Nanosafety, Saarland University and TU Dortmund analysed a cell culture model that mimics the real conditions a little closer – they grew human lung cells on flexible surfaces that were stretched in a respiration-like mode. Lung cells that were stretched reacted in a way that resembled an inflammatory response.

Review: Resolution and aberration correction in liquid cell transmission electron microscopy

Liquid cell electron microscopy possesses a combination of spatial and temporal resolution that provides a unique view of static structures and dynamic processes in liquids. Optimizing the resolution in liquids requires consideration of both the microscope performance and the properties of the sample. The new review article examines the different parameters for optimizing the resolution.Details…
