Researchers have developed a technique to form a virtual wall for oily liquids that will help confine them to a certain area, aiding researchers who are studying these complex molecules. This development will have future implications in the guided delivery of oil and effective blockage of oil spreading.
An international, multidisciplinary research team has developed an ultrathin membrane that can stick to skin and carry arrays of diagnostic sensors and stimulatory components. The 'electronic skin' allows remote patient monitoring and may someday be used to deliver treatments.
A tiny capsule that can carry out a chemical analysis of the contents of one's stomach could identify the presence of so-called 'occult' blood at very low levels. The data is automatically broadcast to an external monitoring device for detection of early stage stomach cancer by one's physician.
Scientists are reporting development of a squishy gel that when compressed - like at a painful knee joint - releases anti-inflammatory medicine. The new material could someday deliver medications when and where osteoarthritis patients need it most.
Applied Nanotech Holdings, Inc. has received a contract from NYSEARCH - Northeast Gas Association (NGA), worth more than $500,000, to fund prototype development of a small, reliable, low-cost methane (natural gas) sensor for residential and industrial applications.
