Researchers have developed an automated method of tracking single fluorescently labeled molecules in living cells, enabling large numbers of molecules to be analyzed and characterized rapidly and cost-effectively.
Researchers succeeded to switch wettability of a nanofiber obtained out of polymers with piezoelectric properties. The time of response to an external trigger was shortened to a few seconds instead of a few minutes at existing methods.
When chemists were starting work on yet another material designed for the efficient production of nanocrystalline zinc oxide, they didn't expect any surprises. They were greatly astonished when the electrical properties of the changing material turned out to be extremely exotic.
What if your theory to model and predict the electronic structure of atoms isn't accounting for dispersion energy? You come up with some 'fudge factors' to make it all work. But getting the right results for the wrong reasons can only take you so far.
Researchers have demonstrated an integrated technique for monitoring specific biomolecules - such as growth factors - that could indicate the health of living cell cultures produced for the burgeoning field of cell-based therapeutics.
