Making fluorescent chips with an inkjet printer

Making fluorescent chips with an inkjet printer
Want to quickly test blood for pathogens? Or food for toxins? In the future, you will be able to do just that from the comfort of your own home using a small fluorescent chip and your smartphone. To make use of this method, you require a lamp and a detector – and now these could potentially be printed in large quantities using an inkjet printer. Fraunhofer IOF researchers will be showcasing the technique at the Compamed trade fair (Hall 8a, Booth P13), to be held in Düsseldorf from November 13th-16th.

Microchip turns 2D ultrasound machines to 3D imaging devices

Microchip turns 2D ultrasound machines to 3D imaging devices
Technology that keeps track of how your smartphone is oriented can now give $50,000 ultrasound machines many of the 3D imaging abilities of their $250,000 counterparts—for the cost of a $10 microchip. Doctors and engineers from Duke and Stanford universities will demonstrate their device at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Research Forum in Washington, D.C.

Ultrasound-on-a-Chip receives broadest FDA 510(k) clearance

Ultrasound-on-a-Chip receives broadest FDA 510(k) clearance
Butterfly Network has announced that it has received FDA 510(k) clearance for the world's first Ultrasound-on-a-Chip based imaging system, the Butterfly iQ for iPhone. The clearance covers 13 clinical applications, the broadest ever for a single ultrasound transducer. By combining almost 10 thousand sensors, 40 times more than systems costing 100 times as much, Butterfly ushers in a new era of accessible, high-performance medical imaging.

'Labyrinth' chip helps monitor aggressive cancer stem cells

'Labyrinth' chip helps monitor aggressive cancer stem cells
  Inspired by the Labyrinth of Greek mythology, a new chip etched with fluid channels sends blood samples through a hydrodynamic maze to separate out rare circulating cancer cells into a relatively clean stream for analysis.

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.
