'Pen' device accurately identifies cancer in seconds

'Pen' device accurately identifies cancer in seconds
A powerful tool that rapidly and accurately identifies cancerous tissue during surgery has been invented by a team of scientists and engineers at The University of Texas at Austin. The tool delivers results in about ten seconds - more than 150 times as fast as existing technology. The MasSpec Pen is an innovative handheld instrument that gives surgeons precise diagnostic information about what tissue to cut or preserve, helping improve treatment and reduce the chances of cancer recurrence.

Temporary tattoo made of graphene tracks vital signs

Temporary tattoo made of graphene tracks vital signs
A graphene health sensor that goes on the skin like a temporary tattoo takes measurements with the same precision as bulky medical equipment. The graphene tattoos, presented in December at the International Electron Devices Meeting in San Francisco, are the thinnest epidermal electronics ever made. They can measure electrical signals from the heart, muscles, and brain, as well as skin temperature and hydration.

Nano thread enables long-term neural implants

Nano thread enables long-term neural implants
Researcher Dr. Luan and his interdisciplinary team from the University of Texas at Austin have developed an ultra flexible nanoelectronic thread (NET) that has the potential to offer a new type of the long-term neural implants. Neural probes are used to directly measure or even stimulate electrical activity in specific regions of the brain. However, despite the many advances in the field, issues with biocompatibility have limited the prospects and usefulness of the technology.

NET probes form reliable integration with the brain

NET probes form reliable integration with the brain
Engineering researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have designed ultra-flexible, nanoelectronic thread (NET) brain probes that can achieve more reliable long-term neural recording than existing probes and don't elicit scar formation when implanted. The researchers described their findings in a research article published in Science Advances.
