Wearable to Detect Allergens, Fire Accelerants, Chemical Markers

Wearable to Detect Allergens, Fire Accelerants, Chemical Markers

A researcher is creating a portable, wearable device for rapid gas analysis that could detect illness immediately. Advancements in micro-gas chromatography in the past 20 years have demonstrated great potential for the development of powerful portable gas analysis devices. But it remains a challenge to achieve efficient separation and rapid detection for effective gas analysis in a highly integrated and cost-effective platform, as well as in a mobile device.

Smart Microrobots Learn How to Swim and Navigate With AI

Smart Microrobots Learn How to Swim and Navigate With AI

Researchers have been able to successfully teach microrobots how to swim via deep reinforcement learning, marking a substantial leap in the progression of microswimming capability. There has been tremendous interest in developing artificial microswimmers that can navigate the world similarly to naturally-occuring swimming microorganisms, like bacteria. Such microswimmers provide promise for a vast array of future biomedical applications, such as…

"Electric Pill" Has Anti-Inflammatory Effects in Severe Covid-19

"Electric Pill" Has Anti-Inflammatory Effects in Severe Covid-19

Vagus nerve stimulation of the auricle is used to treat chronic diseases that affect an entire organ system. Examples include pain therapy, but also the treatment of depression or circulatory disorders. In this minimally invasive therapy, only the sensory nerve endings in the auricle are stimulated, thereby also triggering anti-inflammatory processes.

Three Technologies Taking DNA Diagnostics Into the Home

Three Technologies Taking DNA Diagnostics Into the Home

In recent times, we have all experienced the value of diagnostics used in the comfort and ease of our own homes. Imagine if we could look for other infectious diseases just as easily, with less invasive, self-administered, highly accurate, and reliable tests. With the convergence of advances in telehealth and biotechnology, this is the direction that the diagnostics industry is heading towards.

Without Egg, Sperm or Womb: Mouse Embryos Created from Stem Cells

An egg meets a sperm - that's a necessary first step in life's beginnings, and it's also a common first step in embryonic development research. But in study researchers have grown synthetic embryo models of mice outside the womb by starting solely with stem cells cultured in a petri dish - that is, without the use of fertilized eggs. The method opens new horizons for studying how stem cells form various organs in the developing embryo, and may…

Surgical Robot Readies for Space Station Test

A miniaturized robot is on scheduled to blast off into space to showcase its skills. NASA recently awarded the University of Nebraska-Lincoln $100,000 through the Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research to ready the surgical robot for a 2024 test mission aboard the International Space Station.

A "Nano-Robot" Built Entirely from DNA to Explore Cell Processes

A "Nano-Robot" Built Entirely from DNA to Explore Cell Processes

Constructing a tiny robot from DNA and using it to study cell processes invisible to the naked eye... You would be forgiven for thinking it is science fiction, but it is in fact the subject of serious research. This highly innovative "nano-robot" should enable closer study of the mechanical forces applied at microscopic levels, which are crucial for many biological and pathological processes.

Lilli Technology to Improve Home Care

Lilli, the SaaS company using machine learning to revolutionise home care, has today announced two new deployments of its technology in the UK. North Tyneside Council and Nottingham City Council are both rolling out Lilli's remote monitoring solution as part of new projects to improve remote care outcomes, accelerate hospital discharge, reduce hospital readmissions, and allow individuals to live independently in their homes for longer.

A Water Activated Disposable Paper Battery

A team of researchers have developed a water-activated disposable paper battery. The researchers suggest that it could be used to power a wide range of low-power, single-use disposable electronics - such as smart labels for tracking objects, environmental sensors and medical diagnostic devices - and minimize their environmental impact.
