Sanitized siphons – fewer hospital germs
About 800,000 - 900,000 people every year in Germany alone suffer from nosocomial infections, i.e. infections that occur in connection with hospitalizations. About one third of these cases are caused by retrograde bacterial exposure of immuno-compromised patients.

New Method: ultrafast 3D images of nanostructures
Lensless microscopy with X-rays, or coherent diffractive imaging, is a promising approach. It allows researchers to analyse complex three-dimensional structures, which frequently exist in nature, from a dynamic perspective. Whilst two-dimensional images can already be generated quickly and in an efficient manner, creating 3D images still presents a challenge.

Tiny light-up barcodes identify molecules by their twinkling
An imaging technique developed at Duke University could make it possible to peer inside cells and watch dozens of different molecules in action at once -- by labeling them with short strands of light-up DNA that blink on and off with their own unique rhythm.

Imaging technology will offer new clues to embryonic development
Soon after conception, an embryo's circulatory system connects to that of its mother. Complications that occur at this critical time can result in miscarriage or birth defects with long-term chronic conditions. Unfortunately, limitations in imaging technologies prevent researchers from fully understanding the cellular-level events leading up to this crucial point.
