Microneedle contraceptive patch to empower world’s poorest women

Microneedle contraceptive patch to empower world’s poorest women
Innovative microneedle technology is being developed as an effective, pain-free and discreet method of delivering contraception across the world’s poorest countries, thanks to a new research consortium led by Cardiff University and supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The project will focus on pre-clinical work to develop microneedle patches that have the potential to be painlessly and inconspicuously administered by the user themselves within a few seconds and can last for up to six months.

Organ-on-chip platform improves drug screening

Organ-on-chip platform improves drug screening
Imec has presented an organ-on-chip platform for pharmacological studies with unprecedented signal quality. It fuses multi-electrode array (MEA)-chip with a microfluidic well plate, developed in collaboration with Micronit Microtechnologies, in which cells can be cultured, providing an environment that mimics human physiology. Capable of performing multiple tests in parallel, the device aims to be a game-changer for the pharmaceutical industry, offering high quality data in the drug development process.

‘Memtransistor’ paves the way for brain-like computing

‘Memtransistor’ paves the way for brain-like computing
Computer algorithms might be performing brain-like functions, such as facial recognition and language translation, but the computers themselves have yet to operate like brains. “Computers have separate processing and memory storage units, whereas the brain uses neurons to perform both functions,” said Northwestern Engineering’s Mark C. Hersam. “Neural networks can achieve complicated computation with significantly lower energy consumption compared to a digital computer.”

Human blood–retinal barrier on a microfluidic chip

Human blood–retinal barrier on a microfluidic chip
For some years now, scientists have been researching in order to find ways of reducing animal testing and accelerating clinical trials. In vitro assays with living cells is an alternative, but has limitations as the interconnection and interaction between cells cannot be easily reproduced. To overcome this, scientists are developing systems that mimic tissues and organ functions in conditions very close to reality.

Device enables development of coin-sized medical labs

Device enables development of coin-sized medical labs
It sounds like a science fiction movie: Using a handheld device, a doctor draws blood from a patient and, seconds later, the device provides in-depth medical information about the patient. The idea — shrinking a medical lab onto a chip the size of a small coin — is known as 'lab on a chip.' It’s closer to reality than you might think, but obstacles remain; among them is finding an efficient and reliable way to mix and move blood and other fluids through the chip’s tiny valves and pumps.

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.
