UC Davis Researchers Develop Microscope That Uses Ultraviolet Light for Diagnosis, Eliminates Need for Traditional Histology Slide Preparation

MUSE microscope speeds up some anatomic pathology laboratory processes and removes exposure to toxic fixative chemicals Because they handle tissue specimens, histotechnologists, anatomic pathologists, and hospital nurses are exposed to deadly chemicals such as formaldehyde, formalin, Xylene, and Toluene. The risks associated with these chemicals has been covered regularly by Dark Daily as recently as 2018 and as far back as 2011. (See, “Europe Implements New Anatomic Pathology Guidelines to...

Tiny, Simple-to-Use Lensless Microscope Might Soon Find a Place in Pathology

Primary Goal is to Support Diagnostics and Telemedicine in Resource-Poor Regions Imagine pathologists working with microscopes that don’t have a lens! That may be the future if technology currently under development by a UCLA engineering team can be used in various anatomic pathology or clinical laboratory applications. UCLA engineer Aydogan Ozcan, Ph.D., introduced his newest invention, a novel lensless microscope, in the journal, Lab on a Chip. The world’s smallest, lightest microscope is...
