A new two component-based glass/polydimethylsiloxane microfluidic pH-responsive carbon nanotube chip can efficiently capture or release cancer cells from blood samples.
A multidisciplinary team at CSIC has introduced silicon chips 50 nanometres thick, as thin as a thousandth part of a hair, into living cells. These devices allow the study of cell division processes and can even be designed to interfere with the cell cycle, preventing division and causing cell death.
Researchers review different nanotechnology-assisted microfluidic systems, specifically nanoparticles (NPs)-integrated microfluidic biosensors, for chemical and bioanalysis.
A newly developed nanoscale computing element allowed researchers to further the field of DNA computing.
By remotely heating water over a metal sheet with a laser, Leipzig University researchers were able to move minuscule volumes of liquid at will. The currents generated in this process can be utilized to manipulate and even capture small things.
A new breakthrough of mobile imaging technologies for single-molecule and particles detection has now been created.
The Rockefeller University researchers have offered new insights into “Moore’s Law” — considered to be the world’s most popular technological prediction — that chip density, or the number of components utilized on an integrated circuit, would increase by two-fold every two years.
The tiniest microchips yet can be made from graphene and other 2D-materials, using a form of ‘nano-origami’, physicists at the University of Sussex have found.
Computer scientists, electrical engineers, and biomedical engineers at the University of California, Irvine have developed a new lab-on-a-chip that can help examine tumor heterogeneity to decrease resistance to cancer treatments.
Engineers at Duke University have demonstrated a versatile microfluidic lab-on-a-chip that uses sound waves to create tunnels in oil to touchlessly manipulate and transport droplets.
