Sorting Good Bacteria From Bad
2013-12-02 10:39:43

Arizona State University Arizona State University scientists have developed a microfluidic chip, which can sort good germs from bad. Your intestines are home to about 100 trillion bacteria. That's more than the number of cells that comprise the entire human body. Armies of bacteria sneak into our bodies the moment we are born, uninvited but necessary guests. For the most part, these bacteria are industrious and friendly. Some of them are even beneficial, helping with digestion and...

Unwanted Particles In Water And Food Identified With New Microfluidic Chip
2013-06-20 09:05:53

Virginia Tech A new process for making a three-dimensional microstructure that can be used in the analysis of cells could prove useful in counterterrorism measures and in water and food safety concerns. The research, conducted by members of Virginia Tech's Microelectromechanical Systems Laboratory (MEMS) Laboratory in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is the focus of a recent article in the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers' Journal of...

Microfluidic technology increases efficiency, reduces costs, and could be a boon for synthetic biology Fictional candy maker Willy Wonka called his whimsical device to sort good chocolate eggs from bad, an eggucator. Likewise, by determining what enzymes and compounds to keep and which to discard, scientists are aiming to find their own golden eggs: more potent drugs and cleaner sources of energy. Toward that end, Harvard researchers and a team of international collaborators demonstrated a...

Researchers at Purdue University have developed a technique that uses a laser and holograms to precisely position numerous tiny particles within seconds, representing a potential new tool to analyze biological samples or create devices using nanoassembly. The technique, called rapid electrokinetic patterning, is a potential alternative to existing technologies because the patterns can be more quickly and easily changed, said mechanical engineering doctoral student Stuart J. Williams. "It's...
