VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has developed a new sustainable electrocardiogram (ECG, also known as EKG) patch that is fully recyclable and made of biomaterials.
University of Minnesota Twin Cities researchers have developed a groundbreaking new diagnostic technique that will allow for faster and more accurate detection of neurodegenerative diseases.
Recently, a collaborative research team from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), under the direction of Prof. Guangyan Qing and Prof. Xinmiao Liang, developed a glycan identification method based on nanopore single-molecule sensing through a glycan derivatization strategy.
Storing data in DNA sounds like science fiction, yet it lies in the near future. Professor Tom de Greef expects the first DNA data center to be up and running within five to ten years.
A Cornell-led collaboration harnessed chemical reactions to make microscale origami machines self-fold – freeing them from the liquids in which they usually function, so they can operate in dry environments and at room temperature.
With a new microscopy technique that uses blue light to measure electrons in semiconductors and other nanoscale materials, a team of Brown University researchers is opening a new realm of possibilities in the study of these critical components, which can help power devices like mobile phones and laptops.
A tiny biobattery that could still work after 100 years has been developed by researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York.
Bioactive compounds present mostly in fruit and vegetables perform different bodily functions relating to health and well-being. Their effects are considered antioxidant, antidiabetic, antiaging and anticancer, among others.
Biological sciences is a broad field of study encompassing many areas, including chiral structures such as DNA. Chirality is a mathematical notion that explains a structure's geometrical quality.
Infection and immunity status within a population are crucial factors in managing pandemics. Detecting antigens and antibodies is essential for this purpose. Point-of-care (POC) devices, which are used for rapid screening, are one option.
