RF Excited Magnetic Nanoparticles May Help Achieve Uniform Warming of Bulky Vitrified Systems

RF Excited Magnetic Nanoparticles May Help Achieve Uniform Warming of Bulky Vitrified Systems

Successful techniques for cryopreserving bulk biomaterials and organ systems would transform current approaches to transplantation and regenerative medicine. However, while vitrified cryopreservation holds great promise, practical application has been limited to smaller systems (cells and thin tissues) due to diffusive heat and mass transfer limitations, which are typically manifested as devitrification and cracking failures during thaw.

Plastic Nanoparticles Can Negatively Affect Organisms in Freshwater Bodies

Plastic Nanoparticles Can Negatively Affect Organisms in Freshwater Bodies

Organisms can be negatively affected by plastic nanoparticles, not just in the seas and oceans but in freshwater bodies too. These particles slow the growth of algae, cause deformities in water fleas and impede communication between small organisms and fish. These are the results of research carried out by Wageningen University and IMARES, part of Wageningen UR, published in the latest issue of Environmental Science and Technology. It is the first time that such effects of plastic on freshwater organisms have been studied. [More]
