Researchers have found an easy way to produce carbon nanoparticles that are small enough to evade the body's immune system, reflect light in the near-infrared range for easy detection, and carry payloads of pharmaceutical drugs to targeted tissues.
The adoption of these disposable NPWT devices will be primarily driven by their drastically...
A portable, finger-probe device successfully measured liver function in brain dead adult organ...
This is part of an ongoing series focusing on the way robotics will impact our lives.
The fastest growing advanced wound care segments will be hydrofibers and wound contact layers.
Researchers have designed a small and simple chip to test for antibiotic resistance in just one hour, giving doctors a shot at picking the most effective antibiotic to treat potentially deadly infections. Their work was was published this week in the international journal Lab on a Chip.
L’Oreal is partnering with bioprinting startup Organovo to engineer 3D printed skin tissue to test products and perform other advanced research, the companies announced in a joint statement this week.
Researchers at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) have developed a new technology that turns a smartphone into a DNA-scanning fluorescent microscope. Lead researcher Aydogan Ozcan, Howard Hughes Medical Institute chancellor professor at UCLA, sat down with Bioscience Technology to talk about this advancement and its implications for resource-poor labs, and for personalized medicine.
Optimal size and shape allow implantable devices to last longer in the body.
To the nearly 2 million people in the United States living with the loss of a limb, including U.S. military veterans, prosthetic devices provide restored mobility, yet lack sensory feedback. A team of engineers and researchers at Washington University in St. Louis is working to change that so those with upper limb prosthetics can feel hot and cold and the sense of touch through their prosthetic hands.
The most detailed study to date showing how electrical stimulation accelerates wound healing has been carried out in 40 volunteers by University of Manchester scientists.
The Agriculture Department has developed the first government certification and labeling for foods that are free of genetically modified ingredients.
A team of neuroscientists and bioengineers have created a miniature, fiber-optic microscope designed to peer deeply inside a living brain.
Researchers are seeking to make computer brains smarter by making them more like our own.
Yuichi Imahata's 9-year-old daughter is thrilled her dad stands tall above her head. It's an experience that is new to her.
The translation of extracellular vesicle research to the clinic to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of many disease types will require the development of standard assays for their characterization and quantification. The challenge of such analysis lies in the submicron size (generally 50-1000 nm in diameter) of each vesicle, as well as the complexity of the biofluids in which they are typically suspended.
Findings suggest need for FDA reassessment of safety and efficacy of devices for off-label use.
A study published April 30 in Cell Reports shows, for the first time, that a unique array of sensory receptors in the wing provides feedback to a bat during flight. The findings also suggest that neurons in the bat brain respond to incoming airflow and touch signals, triggering rapid adjustments in wing position to optimize flight control.
A group of NASA scientists developing technology to make interstellar spaceflight possible by the end of the century may have reached a watershed moment.
Transfection is used to modify cells for a wide range of applications, from basic research looking to understand gene function, to establishing disease models, developing new therapeutics, bioprocessing and biomanufacturing. The process hinges upon transferring a substrate into a cell to achieve a desired outcome.
Only 34 out of 133 countries participating in the recent survey of countries in the six WHO regions have a comprehensive national plan to fight resistance to antibiotics and other antimicrobial medicines.
In a striking example of how 3-D printers could customize medical care, doctors turned powdered plastic into tiny devices that saved the lives of three baby boys by holding open defective airways so they could breathe - and the implants even expanded as the tots grew.
Your employer may one day help determine if your genes are why your jeans have become too snug.
Cryo electron microscope enables scientists to explore the frontiers of targeted antibiotics.
The future growth of the non-vascular stent market by 2021 will be slower in the US than almost every other major market.
Here are the winners of the INTERPHEX Exhibitor Awards for 2015.
Biofuels production has changed considerably over the past decade. Basic fermentation has been largely replaced by more complex processes that involve custom-engineered microorganisms that are capable of converting a diverse range of biomasses into fuel.
Device can insert ‘cargo’ into 100,000 cells per minute, up from current standard of 1 per minute.
Seven-year-old Faith Lennox never thought much about putting a prosthetic limb where her missing left hand had once been.
