Researchers developed a paper-based test that requires only a small blood sample of 10 microliters. A blue dot glows on the strip if ST2 is present in the sample, and a green dot glows if it contains BNP.
An international research team has for the first time investigated the optical properties of three-dimensional nanoporous graphene. The experiments show that the plasmonic excitations in this new material can be precisely controlled by the pore size and by introducing atomic impurities.
A research team has performed the first-ever direct nanoscale examination of a living cell membrane. In doing so, it also resolved a long-standing debate by identifying tiny groupings of lipid molecules that are likely key to the cell's functioning.
Is it possible to watch at the level of single cells how fish embryos become trout, carp or salmon? Researchers have successfully combined two very advanced fluorescence microscopy techniques. The new high-resolution light microscope permits fascinating insights into a cell's interior.
Nanomedicine has great potential to safely treat children's cancer. However, it is currently stymied by too little research. About two-thirds of research attention in nanomedicine therapeutics, of more 250 nanomedicine products, is focused on cancer. Yet this isn't translating into new cancer treatments for children coming to market.
Scientists discovered that molecules on the surface of the drops were much more ordered than expected. Their surprising results pave the way to a better understanding of atmospheric, biological and geological processes.
