Abcam plc, a global innovator in life science reagents and tools, and SomaServe Ltd, a Pharma service and specialist reagent business exploiting PolyNautâ Technology, have announced a partnership to commercialise the cell delivery potential of the polymer-based ‘bionic’ nanoparticles, which can carry a range of payloads directly to live cells.
Breast cancer is among the top 10 leading causes of death among women worldwide. Although the treatment methods have improved, detecting and treating metastases of cancer in lymph nodes remains a challenge.
Nanotechnology will play a crucial role in the future management of vessel corrosion and biofouling, according to a major maritime study.
Researchers at The University of Manchester discovered that atomically- thin micas – the name given to a type of common mineral found in soil – are excellent proton conductors.
Previously, the idea of tiny nanobots that flow through the body to rectify damaged cells was regarded as science fiction. However, now, these microrobots are turning into reality with a lot of experimental trials.
Bacteria have the ability to dynamically move toward a nutrient source—a phenomenon called chemotaxis—and they can move together through a process called swarming.
In the most recent paper from the Geobacter Lab headed by Derek Lovley, a microbiologist at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, he and his teammates have reported “a major advance” in the mission to create electrically conductive protein nanowires in the bacterium Geobacter sulfurreducens for use as chemical and biological sensors.
A new twist on cryo-EM imaging reveals what’s going on inside MOFs, highly porous nanoparticles with big potential for storing fuel, separating gases and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
The most basic home medical tests might seem like a pack of different silicon chips applied with a special film, one for detecting drugs in the blood, another for proteins in the urine signifying infection, another for bacteria in water, and many more.
Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder) have successfully produced nanobio-hybrid organisms that can use airborne nitrogen and carbon dioxide (CO2) to create a wide range of fuels and plastics.
