Graphene 3D Lab Inc. has announced that it has received and successfully assembled an industrial scale thermoplastic extruder line to be used in the production of conductive graphene filament. The equipment, which has a production capacity of up to 10 kg per hour of 3D printer filament, is now operational and has been tested for the production of specialty filaments.
By modifying the structure of a diamond crystal, the DIADEMS project creates a new material that could be used in applications, from the creation of smart medicines to the next generation computers.
Finding out whether you have been infected with dengue may soon be as easy as spitting into a rapid test kit. The paper-based disposable device will allow dengue-specific antibodies to be detected easily from saliva within 20 minutes. This device is currently undergoing further development for commercialization.
Quantum chemical calculations have been used to solve big mysteries in space. Soon the same calculations may be used to produce tomorrow's cancer drugs.
Designing systems that build themselves is one of the great dreams of nanotechnology researchers, and they are taking great strides towards developing such 'bottom-up' nanotechnology fabrication techniques. Fabrication processes based on DNA might change this: DNA origami have been heralded as a potential breakthrough for the creation of nanoscale devices. Researchers have now developed methods to assemble DNA-functionalized microparticles into a colloidal gel, and to extrude this gel with a 3D […]
