Diagnostics: Cell Separation in Microchannels

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[24/06/2013] Cancer is a malicious disease: Even after a tumor has been removed, cancer cells may still be circulating through the blood and cause metastases in other organs. These cells have to be detected early, since metastases drastically reduce the chances of recovery. A newly developed cell separation system may be able make diagnoses more reliable.Diagnostics: Cell Separation in Microchannels - Read more

[25/01/2012] Engineers at Brown University have designed a biological device that can measure glucose concentrations in human saliva. The technique could eliminate the need for diabetics to draw blood to check their glucose levels.Diabetics: Biochip Measures Glucose in Saliva, Not Blood - Read more

Biochip: Recognising Blood Poisoning Quickly

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[02/12/2011] Is the patient suffering from blood poisoning? To answer this question, the doctor draws a blood sample and sends it to a central laboratory for testing. In future, physicians will be able to analyse blood there and then and have the results within twenty minutes. This is made possible by a biochip, developed by scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Physical Measurement Techniques IPM.Biochip: Recognising Blood Poisoning Quickly - Read more

Epilepsy: Ultrathin Flexible Brain Implant Offers Unique Look at Seizures

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[18/11/2011] Researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health have developed a flexible brain implant that could one day be used to treat epileptic seizures. In animal studies, the researchers used the device – a type of electrode array that conforms to the brain's surface – to take an unprecedented look at the brain activity underlying seizures.

[26/10/2009] Searching for biomarkers that can warn of diseases such as cancer while they are still in their earliest stage is likely to become far easier thanks to an innovative biosensor chip developed by Stanford University researchers. Cancer: Magnetic Nanotags Spot Tumors - Read more

Cancer Diagnosis: Sensor Biochips May Help

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[22/10/2009] It is very difficult to predict whether a cancer drug will help an individual patient: only about one third of the drugs will work directly in a given patient. Researchers have now developed a new test for cancer drugs. Cancer Diagnosis: Sensor Biochips May Help - Read more

Blood Diagnosis: Chip-based and Mobile

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[13/10/2009] The blood analysis takes just a few minutes: An improved marker-free technique might provide the basis for faster analysis, whether in a hospital or for mobile blood donations.Blood Diagnosis: Chip-based and Mobile - Read more

Lab-on-a-Chip: Acoustic Tweezers Can Position Tiny Objects

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[15/09/2009] Manipulating tiny objects like single cells or nanosized beads often requires relatively large, unwieldy equipment, but now a system that uses sound as a tiny tweezers can be small enough to place on a chip. Lab-on-a-Chip: Acoustic Tweezers Can Position Tiny Objects - Read more

Bacteria: Lab-on-a-Chip Measures Mechanics of Biofilms

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[27/07/2009] Researchers at the University of Michigan have devised a microscale tool to help them understand the mechanical behavior of biofilms, slimy colonies of bacteria involved in most human infectious diseases. Bacteria: Lab-on-a-Chip Measures Mechanics of Biofilms - Read more

Biochips: Proteins in Gel

[30/06/2009] Biochips are already in widespread use for DNA testing. Researchers have recently developed a gel which also allows fixing proteins on their surface. Biochips: Proteins in Gel - Read more

Cancer: Lab-on-a-Chip Leads to Better Therapies

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[23/03/2009] Engineers have invented a method that could be used to help figure out how cancer cells break free from neighboring tissue - an "escape" that can spread the disease to other parts of the body. Cancer: Lab-on-a-Chip Leads to Better Therapies - Read more

Biotechnology: Molecules, Technique and Therapies (Part 1)

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[15/11/2008] by Wiebke Heiss / MEDICA.de Detergents, plants resistant to bugs, drugs - chemistry, physics, biology – in the country, at sea or in the air. Biotechnology is everywhere since it is one of the most interdisciplinary branches of research – and helps medicine to combat diseases formerly known as not being treatable.Biotechnology: Molecules, Technique and Therapies (Part 1) - Read more
