Researchers have developed a new, easy-to-adapt and inexpensive analytical procedure. The main role is played by innovative bioconjugates - luminescent, magnetic microparticles coated with appropriately selected bacteriophages.
To create new in-office diagnostics for additional diseases, researchers report a new technique that uses ultrasound to concentrate fluorescently labeled disease biomarkers otherwise impossible to detect with current equipment in an office setting.
A new project will study the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing to manufacture components for a range of military and commercial applications.
Researchers have discovered an important first step towards building electrically pumped nanolasers (or light-based sources). These lasers are critical in the development of integrated photonic based short-distance optical interconnects and sensors.
