Microchip technology could be used to track smart pills

Microchip technology could be used to track smart pills
Researchers at Caltech have developed a prototype miniature medical device that could ultimately be used in "smart pills" to diagnose and treat diseases. A key to the new technology—and what makes it unique among other microscale medical devices—is that its location can be precisely identified within the body, something that proved challenging before.

Device can identify risks for breast cancer

Device can identify risks for breast cancer
Researchers at Purdue University are creating a device that they hope will help identify risk factors that cause breast cancer. The device, known as risk-on-a-chip, is a small plastic case with several thin layers and an opening for a piece of paper where researchers can place a portion of tissue. This tiny environment produces risk factors for cancer and mimics what happens in a living organism.

Quartz crystals designed for medical applications

Quartz crystals designed for medical applications
Euroquartz has announced the availability of three new ranges of ultra-miniature quartz crystals from Statek that are designed for use in medical-implantable wireless RF transceiver applications using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or Medical Implant Communications Service (MICS) specifications. The CX16, CX18 and CX20 series are ultra-miniature devices operating in the 16MHz and above frequency range requested by BLE transceiver ICs.

Organ-on-chip senses electrical activity and cell resistance

Organ-on-chip senses electrical activity and cell resistance
Organ-on-chip technology promises to help speed up and improve research on how potential new drugs will interact with the body’s own organs. Additionally, it may alleviate the need for in-animal studies that can be difficult to perform and that too often produce misleading results. Organs-on-chip are essentially specialised microfluidic devices within which living cells are grown, supported, and experimented on.

Heart rate click board adds biometrics to designs

The Heart Rate 4 click board from MikroElektronika is now in stock at Mouser Electronics. It measures the oxygen saturation in a person’s blood through pulse oximetry. The click board incorporates the Maxim MAX30101 pulse oximeter and heart-rate sensor.

Lab on a chip monitors health and exposure to pollutants

Lab on a chip monitors health and exposure to pollutants
Imagine wearing a device that continuously analyses your sweat or blood for different types of biomarkers, such as proteins that show you may have breast cancer or lung cancer. Rutgers engineers have invented biosensor technology - known as a lab on a chip - that could be used in hand-held or wearable devices to monitor your health and exposure to dangerous bacteria, viruses and pollutants.

Platforms implement electrophysiological cell analysis

Platforms implement electrophysiological cell analysis
MaxWell Biosystems AG’s head office is hidden away in a Basel laboratory building previously used by Syngenta, just a stone’s throw from ETH Zurich’s Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering (D-BSSE). Most rooms are still empty, but on the third floor, in a spacious laboratory at the end of a long corridor, the entrepreneurial atmosphere is already palpable.

'Heart-on-a-chip' can improve drug development

'Heart-on-a-chip' can improve drug development
Through "heart-on-a-chip" technology - modeling a human heart on an engineered chip and measuring the effects of compound exposure on functions of heart tissue using microelectrodes - Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers hope to decrease the time needed for new drug trials and ensure potentially lifesaving drugs are safe and effective while reducing the need for human and animal testing.

Big improvement to brain-computer interface

Big improvement to brain-computer interface
The Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) - a collaboration of San Diego State University with the University of Washington and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - is working on an implantable brain chip that can record neural electrical signals and transmit them to receivers in the limb, bypassing the damage and restoring movement.
