CS 3700 Ranked First in Trueness in Latest In-Vitro Study
 ATLANTA —Scientific literature has shown intraoral scanners to be highly successful in creating digital impressions for designing short-span restorations and partial prosthesis; however, scanning fully edentulous arches is less studied. Now, a new comprehensive in-vitro study testing the trueness of 12 intraoral scanners when scanning full-arch implant impressions has found the CS 3700 intraoral scanner to offer the truest results when capturing scan bodies in an edentulous arch, giving doctors more confidence that they ’re getting the best results when creating digital impressions with the CS 3700. ...

Inducing metallicity in graphene nanoribbons via zero-mode superlattices
The design and fabrication of robust metallic states in graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) are challenging because lateral quantum confinement and many-electron interactions induce electronic band gaps when graphene is patterned at nanometer length scales. Recent developments in bottom-up synthesis have enabled the design and characterization of atomically precise GNRs, but strategies for realizing GNR metallicity have been elusive. Here we demonstrate a general technique for inducing metallicity in GNRs by inserting a symmetric superlattice of zero-energy modes into otherwise semiconducting GNRs. We verify the resulting metallic...

What Your Blood Tells You About Cancer
Blood tests can tell us a lot about what’s going on in our bodies—from whether we’re eating too much sugar to whether we’re harboring any infectious diseases. Scientists lately have been working on ways to use similar diagnostic tools for cancer, which have the potential to dramatically increase the amount of information doctors use to figure out the best treatments for their patients. Called liquid biopsies, these tests are designed to pick up genetic material shed by cancer tumors into the blood, which lets doctors avoid the invasive procedures needed to extract samples directly from tumors. That ...

Blonde Scandinavians or well-travelled Southern Europeans? Research busts myths of Vikings
(University of Copenhagen The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences) Our notion of the Scandinavian Viking very likely stems from films rather than history. In reality, their genome contains lots of genes from Southern and Eastern Europe, which also implies that they had dark rather than blonde hair. And within the Scandinavian borders, the Vikings did not really mix genetically; instead, they travelled abroad on plundering raids. This is revealed by new research from the University of Copenhagen. (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)
