Exosomes are lipid-bilayer nanoscale membrane particles with an average size of around 200 nm, which are secreted by many cell types.
A terahertz optical spectroscopy system prototype with a sensing area comparable to the cross-sectional area of only five human hairs was developed by researchers from Osaka University’s Institute of Laser Engineering.
In a recent article, the authors presented an integrated multifunctional two-dimensional (2D) plasmonic optical tweezer with an array of graphene disks and a substrate circuit.
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.
