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.

'Lab on a chip' costs 1 cent to produce

'Lab on a chip' costs 1 cent to produce
Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have developed a way to produce a cheap and reusable diagnostic "lab on a chip" with the help of an ordinary inkjet printer. At a production cost of as little as 1 cent per chip, the new technology could usher in a medical diagnostics revolution like the kind brought on by low-cost genome sequencing, said Ron Davis, PhD, professor of biochemistry and of genetics and director of the Stanford Genome Technology Center.

Acoustofluidic chip helps detect disease

Acoustofluidic chip helps detect disease
Scientists at Duke University have developed a way of concentrating nanoparticles inside a small device using only sound waves. This achievement may help introduce portable diagnostics that rely on attaching nanoparticles to biomarkers such as proteins and measuring how many find their targets. Nanoparticles tagged with fluorescent markers to make them easier to see are concentrated in a column by a new acoustic whirlpool device.
