.elegansThe c. elegans nematode
was irradiated at the head of the worm with the proton microbeam.
The GFP labeled heat shock response 24 hours after irradiation
demonstrates an abscopal effect throughout the animal.
MicrobeamThe neutron microbeam will
deliver low energy neutrons to single cell targets. This microbeam
system, which is currently under development, will be the first
single-cell, targeted neutron irradiator.
MicrospotForm of laser microbeam. Multiphoton
processes produces a micro-volume of UV radiation. Delivers “spot”
damage, an advantage over all microbeam systems
2013 Microbeam Training Course AnnouncementMessage from Marcelo Vazquez announcing the 2013 Microbeam Training Course.
RARAF is a biomedical resource
center that specilizes in the delivery of known quantities of radiation
to targeted samples with micrometer precision and resolution using our
single-cell/single-particle microbeam irradiator.
RARAF is a Biomedical Technology Resource (P41) Center supported by National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) through grant: P41 EB002033
