Detection of BSE risk material

13.12.2006
Species-specific and simultaneous, quantitative detection of BSE risk material in meat and meat products based on a new real-time PCR-method

BSE belongs to the sphere of types of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE), which can develop in humans due to misfolded protein bodies, so-called prions (PrPsc). By now, there is no longer any scientific doubt that the Creutzfeld Jakob Disease (vCJD), which occurs in humans, constitutes the human form of BSE. According to the current standard of knowledge, all forms of the TSE diseases are resistant to therapy and generally terminal. Hence, the most effective possibility to date to protect human beings from the transmission of a prion-based disease is the elimination of the respective animal tissue rated as highly infectious, the so-called specified risk material (SRM), from the production of food.

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
