University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign engineers have developed a three-dimensionally printed biological robot that is powered by muscle cells and controlled using electrical pulses.
Miniaturized laboratory-on-chip systems promise rapid, sensitive, and multiplexed detection of biological samples for medical diagnostics, drug discovery, and high-throughput screening.
They’re soft, biocompatible, about 7 millimeters long – and, incredibly, able to walk by themselves. Miniature “bio-bots” developed at the University of Illinois are making tracks in synthetic biology.
University of Illinois researchers are using a new kind of microsensor to answer one of the weightiest questions in biology â€“ the relationship between cell mass and growth rate.
