Introducing the Lab on a Chip at CNSE's Nanobiosciences Constellation

James Castracane, head of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE), University of Albany-State University New York (SUNY) Nanobiosciences Constellation and Professor of Nanoscience, introduces a "lab on a chip" and its uses in nanobioscience technology.

This technology will lead to a microchip which will be assembled from nanoscale components so that several different functions can be carried out within a very small package.

The goal: to implant these tiny microchips – just two to three cells in diameter and a tenth of a millimeter in length – in human tumors, where they would remain for days or weeks. The chips would report remotely to scanners that would “read” them on the nature of the cells that infiltrate them – in particular, on whether metastatic cells are present that would call for more aggressive cancer therapy.
