Nanoscale Collagen Matrix Maintains Cell Morphology in Microfluidic Devices for Longer Periods

A novel ultrathin collagen matrix assembly allows for the unprecedented maintenance of liver cell morphology and function in a microscale "organ-on-a-chip" device that is one example of 3D microtissue engineering. [More]
Novel Nanotubes Created from Plant Waste

Novel Nanotubes Created from Plant Waste

Researchers with the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences took what some would consider garbage and made a remarkable scientific tool, one that could someday help to correct genetic disorders or treat cancer without chemotherapy’s nasty side effects. [More]
Non-Invasive Optical Procedure for Rapid and Accurate Analysis of Living Cells

Non-Invasive Optical Procedure for Rapid and Accurate Analysis of Living Cells

In order to investigate inflammation, tumors or stem cells, medical practitioners analyze living cells. Non-invasive optical procedures such as Raman spectroscopy accelerate this procedure. Researchers have now developed it to industrial scale. [More]

Novel Green Chemical Process Converts Adipic Acid Directly from Sugar

In the future, the clothes you wear could be made from sugar. Researchers at the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) have discovered a new chemical process that can convert adipic acid directly from sugar. [More]
Tania Konry Develops ScanDrop for Detecting Variety of Biological Specimens

Tania Konry Develops ScanDrop for Detecting Variety of Biological Specimens

Northeastern University professor of pharmaceutical sciences, Tania Konry, has developed a single instrument that can conduct a wide range of biological scans in a fraction of the time and cost of industry standard equipment. That's because it uses considerably less material and ultra-sensitive detection methods to do the same thing. [More]

JPK Instruments, a world-leading manufacturer of nanoanalytic instrumentation for research in life sciences and soft matter, reports on the study of the research work of Dr Paul Squires and his colleagues at the University of Warwick. [More]
NIH Awards Grant for Study on ‘Microparticles’ in Stored Blood for Inflammation, Injury

NIH Awards Grant for Study on ‘Microparticles’ in Stored Blood for Inflammation, Injury

A University of Cincinnati (UC) trauma and critical care researcher has received a National Institutes of Health grant to better understand how "microparticles” in stored blood can contribute to inflammation and injury after resuscitation from traumatic injury. [More]
Nano-Scopic Layering of Citrate Fluid and Mineral Crystals Prevents Shattering of Bones

Nano-Scopic Layering of Citrate Fluid and Mineral Crystals Prevents Shattering of Bones

Latest research shows that the chemical citrate – a by-product of natural cell metabolism – is mixed with water to create a viscous fluid that is trapped between the nano-scale crystals that form our bones. [More]
