Starpharma Holdings Ltd today announced the results of an animal study which shows that a dendrimer-based formulation of doxorubicin was substantially more efficacious in treating secondary tumours of breast cancer (metastases) in lungs than the drug alone.
Skorpios Technologies, Inc., an innovator in silicon photonic technology, today announced demonstration of a full C-band tunable CMOS photonic laser manufactured in a commercial foundry utilizing its proprietary STAB process.
Australian clean technology innovator, BluGlass Limited announced that it has succeeded in producing p-type gallium nitride films with industry equivalent electrical properties using its breakthrough low temperature Remote Plasma Chemical Vapour Deposition (RPCVD) technology when grown on top of MOCVD GaN templates.
HGST Labs announced they have combined two innovative nanotechnologies - self-assembling molecules and nanoimprinting - to create large areas of dense patterns of magnetic islands only 10 nanometers wide. These features are only about 50 atoms wide and some 100,000 times thinner than a human hair.
With extended applications laboratories and customer support capabilities, Bruker marks another milestone in its nearly 40-year history in India with grand openings of major applications, training and service centers.
CEA-Leti and Menapic today announced a joint-development program to apply colored picosecond acoustics to materials analysis. Menapic's colored picosecond acoustics (APiC) technology is an innovative tool to characterize the mechanical properties of thin films.
Anasys Instruments reports on the NIST announcement in their Tech Beat publication which describes the work of Andrea Centrone and his colleagues demonstrating the use of AFM-IR for chemical composition studies at nanoscale resolution.
JPK Instruments, a world-leading manufacturer of nanoanalytic instrumentation for research in life sciences and soft matter, reports on the research studies of Dr Ioan Notingher, associate professor in the faculty of science at the University of Nottingham. With a research interest in the development of new optical and spectroscopic methods for studying biomaterials, he is applying JPK's atomic force microscope (AFM) system, the NanoWizard, and tip assisted optics module (TAO).
The U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, located outside of Chicago, and California Lithium Battery, Inc. (CalBattery), a Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator portfolio company, announced today that they have signed a licensing agreement for an Argonne-developed, silicon-graphene composite anode material for high-energy lithium batteries.
NanoSight reports on how Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis, NTA, is being used in the development of a method to estimate the purity of vesicle preparations by comparing the ratio of nano-vesicle counts to protein concentration. This work is reported by Dr Aled Clayton of the School of Medicine at Cardiff University in an original research article published in the Journal of Extracellular Vesicles.
