Latest Lab-on-a-chip Stories
Researchers at Oregon State University have tapped into the extraordinary power of carbon “nanotubes” to increase the speed of biological sensors, a technology that might one day allow a doctor to routinely perform lab tests in minutes, speeding diagnosis and treatment while reducing costs.
A new kind of flexible, transparent pressure sensor, developed at the University of California, Davis, for use in medical applications, relies on a drop of liquid.
Tiny metallic nanoparticles that shimmer in the light like the scales on a butterfly's wing are set to become the color-change components of a revolutionary new approach to point-of-care medical diagnostics, according to a study published in International Journal of Design Engineering.
Using something called “inertial microfluidics,” University of Cincinnati researchers are able to safely separate and collect concentrated volumes of fragile prostate cancer cells from small sample batches.
Singapore, Sept 21, 2011 - (ACN Newswire) - The Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech), a research institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), launched the
UC researchers have developed the first lab-on-a-chip sensor to provide fast feedback regarding levels of the heavy metal manganese in humans.
The innovative development of the lab-on-a-chip is allowing scientists to perform complex laboratory assays with such simplicity that these tests can be carried out in the most remote regions of the world.
An inexpensive and portable blood test could provide a breakthrough in diagnosing infections and has been proven as accurate as expensive hospital-based testing in the detection of HIV, syphilis and other diseases.
UBC researchers have invented a silicone chip that could make genetic analysis far more sensitive, rapid, and cost-effective by allowing individual cells to fall into place like balls in a pinball machine.
Lab on a Chip is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published bi-weekly (24 issues per year) by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). It was established in 2001 and hosts RSC’s other publications: Highlights in Chemical Technology and Highlights in Chemical Biology. The editor-in-chief is Harp Minhas. Lab on a Chip publishes original primary research and review articles on any aspect of miniaturization at the micro and nano scale. It covers a variety of disciplines including chemistry,...
