Conductive mesh for implantable and wearable bioelectronics

Conductive mesh for implantable and wearable bioelectronics
A research team at the Center for Nanoparticle Research, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), has succeeded in developing a wearable and implantable device, that measures electrophysiological signals and applies electrical and thermal stimulations. It provides information on muscle and cardiac dysfunctions, and thus could be implemented for pain relief, rehabilitation, and prosthetic motor control.

Radiopaque glue seals bleeding and guides surgery

As open surgery has gradually been replaced by minimally-invasive and image-guided procedures, tissue adhesives are taking the place of sutures and surgical staples. With countless applications, including: bleeding embolisation, angioplasty, stent insertion, and biopsy, among others, new surgical glues are highly desired in medical clinics.

Smart sensor measures glucose from skin

Smart sensor measures glucose from skin
Scientists at the Institute for Basic Science in South Korea hope that a new sensor they’ve developed is a big step toward overcoming many of the challenges of measuring glucose from sweat on the skin in real-life conditions. Their device collects sweat into porous, electrochemically active electrodes and is able to use a sample down to 1 µl. There’s a multi-layer uptake mechanism that helps the sweat reach the sensors.

MRI contrast agent turns on at sites of disease

MRI contrast agent turns on at sites of disease
  At the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in South Korea, researchers have developed a type of MRI contrast agent that only lights up when near a target. It consists of two components, an “enhancer” which is the actual contrast agent that lights up and a “quencher” that controls the activation of the enhancer.
