Fluidic Valves Created on Multi-Layered Paper

A team of University of Rhode Island engineers led by Professor Mohammad Faghri has created a new paper-based platform for conducting a wide range of complex medical diagnostics. [More]
New Lab-on-a-Chip Technique for Analysis of Single Cells

New Lab-on-a-Chip Technique for Analysis of Single Cells

Scientists at EPFL have developed a new lab-on-a-chip technique to analyze single cells from entire population. The new method, which uses beads and microfluidics can change the way we study mixed populations of cells, such as those of tumors. [More]
Biologically Based "Egg-on-a-Chip"

Biologically Based "Egg-on-a-Chip"

Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) systems have registered tremendous progress over the past 20 years. Myriad "chip" schemes have already emerged, ranging from the lung-on-a-chip and heart-on-a-chip to the liver-on-a-chip and kidney-on-a-chip. [More]

Mobile Wireless System with Nanopotentiostat Monitors Health of Elderly People in their Homes

Mobile Wireless System with Nanopotentiostat Monitors Health of Elderly People in their Homes

Fraunhofer FIT demonstrates a mobile wireless system that monitors the health of elderly people in their own homes, using miniature sensors. Besides non-invasive sensors this platform integrates technology to take a blood sample and to determine specific markers in the patient's blood. At its core is the home unit, a compact device located in the patient's home. It incorporates the necessary software as well as sensors and the analytical equipment. Visit us at MEDICA, November 12 – 15, 2014, Hall 10, booth G05. [More]
Time Capsule Records Forensic History of Chemical Reactions

Time Capsule Records Forensic History of Chemical Reactions

Stanford engineers have invented a device that can record when chemicals appear in water and in what concentration, without electronics, creating a simple and inexpensive sensor to find unknown sources of contaminations in streams. [More]
New Lab Device Gives Unprecedented Microscopic Look at Metastasis

New Lab Device Gives Unprecedented Microscopic Look at Metastasis

Johns Hopkins engineers have invented a lab device to give cancer researchers an unprecedented microscopic look at metastasis, the complex way that tumor cells spread through the body, causing more than 90 percent of cancer-related deaths. By shedding light on precisely how tumor cells travel, the device could uncover new ways to keep cancer in check. [More]
