Plasmonic biosensors enable easy-to-use health tests

Plasmonic biosensors enable easy-to-use health tests
  A biosensor developed at Aalto University enables creating a range of new health tests similar to home pregnancy tests. The plasmonic biosensor can detect diseased exosomes even by the naked eye. Exosomes, important indicators of health conditions, are cell-derived vesicles that are present in blood and urine.

Scaffolds demonstrate behaviour of stem and cancer cells

Scaffolds demonstrate behaviour of stem and cancer cells
Novel scaffolds are shown enabling cells to behave in a different but controlled way in vitro due to the presence of aligned, self-assembled ceramic nanofibers of an ultra-high anisotropy ratio augmented into graphene shells. "This unique hybrid nano-network allows for an exceptional combination of selective guidance stimuli for stem cell development, variations in immune reactions, and behavior of cancer cells", says Professor Michael Gasik from Aalto University.

'Surgify' makes cranial surgery safer and faster

An estimated 770 000 skull opening procedures are performed worldwide every year. In approximately 30% of these surgeries, some degree of damage is caused to the tissues under the skull. 'Drilling is one of the riskiest parts of bone and dental procedures, as it requires physical force while extreme care must be taken with vulnerable tissues or vessels and nerves within the bones,' says Visa Sippola, Project Coordinator.
