Implantable Microfluid System Can Efficiently, Durably Stabilize Intraocular Pressure

Elevated or diminished eye pressure impairs our ability to see, and in the worst cases, can even lead to blindness. Until now, there has been no effective long-term treatment. [More]

Study on Unique Gas-Flow Properties of Molecular Tubes Published in ACS Nano

Chemistry professor Linda Shimizu oversees a series of crowd-pleasing chemistry demonstrations in middle and high schools throughout central South Carolina every year. They are spirited affairs, and her research in the laboratory is just as dynamic ?but with a sense of order that really keeps atoms in line. [More]

Microfluidic Device to Isolate Individual Rare Cells

Microfluidic Device to Isolate Individual Rare Cells

In a blood sample taken from a cancer patient, there may be a single circulating tumor cell among hundreds of thousands of other cells. These tumor cells can provide valuable information about how cancer progresses, and could help doctors decide how to treat individual patients, but they are extremely difficult to find. [More]
Body-on-a-Chip Multi-Tissue Device Mimics Real-Life Conditions for Drugs Testing

Body-on-a-Chip Multi-Tissue Device Mimics Real-Life Conditions for Drugs Testing

Scientists in an EU-supported project have developed a microfluidic chip that simultaneously analyses the reactions of several human organ tissues when they come into contact with candidates for new drugs. The ground-breaking device could save millions of euros in drug development costs. [More]
New Study on Methane Nano-Bubble Formation during Hydrate Decomposition

New Study on Methane Nano-Bubble Formation during Hydrate Decomposition

Like the carbon dioxide in a fizzing glass of soda, most bubbles of gas in a liquid don't last long. But nanobubbles persist. These bubbles are thousands of times smaller than the tip of a pencil lead -- so small they are invisible even under most optical microscopes -- and their stability makes them useful in a variety of applications, from targeted drug delivery to water treatment procedures.

Small, Simple Chip Can Test for Antibiotic Resistance Within One Hour

Small, Simple Chip Can Test for Antibiotic Resistance Within One Hour

We live in fear of 'superbugs': infectious bacteria that don't respond to treatment by antibiotics, and can turn a routine hospital stay into a nightmare. A 2015 Health Canada report estimates that superbugs have already cost Canadians $1 billion, and are a "serious and growing issue." Each year two million people in the U.S. contract antibiotic-resistant infections, and at least 23,000 people die as a direct result. [More]
