Biomolecule's behavior: artificial vs natural conditions

Graphic: RNA hairpin [05/02/2016] Researchers often analyse isolated biomolecules in test tubes, and it is doubtful if the results can be applied to densely-packed cells. A team from Bochum, Dortmund and Greifswald monitored the folding of an RNA structure in the living cell and compared the results with those of test tube analyses.Biomolecule's behavior: artificial vs natural conditions - Read more

Robotic fingers with a gentle touch

Graphic: roboter hand holding an egg [02/02/2016] EPFL scientists have invented a new soft gripper that uses electroadhesion: flexible electrode flaps that act like a thumb-index duo. It can pick up fragile objects of arbitrary shape and stiffness, like an egg, a water balloon or paper. Robotic fingers with a gentle touch - Read more

Customized Implants cover bones optimally

Photo: Knee implant [22/01/2016] It may fits, but somewhere it still tweaks. Although a suit off the rack serves its purpose, it is still far from being an ideal solution. With a custom made heart it is different. It is similar with implants. Often patients complain about the fact that those implants feel strange. 3D printing is on the best way to change this. Here, the implants are adapted to the carrier.Customized Implants cover bones optimally - Read more

Graphic: Disposable Tweezer [03/12/2015] The development of a reusable microfluidic device for sorting and manipulating cells and other micro/nano meter scale objects will make biomedical diagnosis of diseases cheaper and more convenient in regions where medical facilities are sparse or cost is prohibitive. Researchers at Penn State have recently filed a patent to develop such a device.A cheap, disposable device for diagnosing diseases - Read more

Popping microbubbles help focus light inside the body

Photo: Microbubbles under an optical microscope [03/12/2015] A new technique developed at Caltech that uses gas-filled microbubbles for focusing light inside tissue could one day provide doctors with a minimally invasive way of destroying tumors with lasers, and lead to improved diagnostic medical imaging.Popping microbubbles help focus light inside the body - Read more

CT coronary angiograms – three-dimensional insight into the heart

Photo: Preview picture of video Until now, catheter-based coronary angiography was considered state-of-the-art for the diagnosis of coronary heart disease. Yet this method is not without risk, after all it is an invasive procedure. An exam using a computer tomography scanner (CT) - the so-called CT coronary angiogram - represents a low-risk alternative.

Magnetogenetics: how neural stem cells grow in a certain direction

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/12/2015] If you could stimulate brain cells to grow in a specific direction, you would probably be able to achieve a significant improvement in the health of patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease. This is why the MAGNEURON project focuses on this approach. Biophysicist Professor Jacob Piehler of the University of Osnabrück has also done research in this field.
