Latest Lab-on-a-chip Stories
While refining their novel method for making nanoscale wires, chemists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) discovered an unexpected bonusâ€”a new way to create nanowires that produce light similar to that from light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
Researchers at Oregon State University have reported the successful loading of biological molecules onto â€œnanospringsâ€ â€“ a type of nanostructure that has gained significant interest in recent years for its ability to maximize surface area in microreactors.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a microminiaturized device that can make complex viscosity measurementsâ€”critical data for a wide variety of fields dealing with things that have to flowâ€”on sample sizes as small as a few nanoliters.
A wrench or a screwdriver of a single size is useful for some jobs, but for a more complicated project, you need a set of tools of different sizes.
Microfluidic device uses antibodies to 'capture' white blood cells called T cells affected by HIV.
Using new technology that allows scientists to monitor how individual cells react in the complex system of cell signaling, Stanford University researchers have uncovered a much larger spectrum of differences between each cell than ever seen before.
With "hands-on" experiences in childhood and adolescence having sparked so many science careers, scientists in Canada are describing a quick, simple, safe, and inexpensive way for kids to participate in making microfluidic devices.
Researchers at Purdue University have developed a potential new tool for medical diagnostics, testing food and water for contamination, and crime-scene forensics.
Each year, about 80,000 people in Germany become seriously ill from occlusions of veins caused by blood clots.
UC engineering researchers create tiny pools without walls with programmable microfluidic systems.
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,...
