Researchers have developed a precise microscale manipulation method by rapidly flowing cell suspensions through a specially designed microchannel. This novel microfluidic device enables high-throughput sized-based cell sorting of a large amount of biological samples, which has broad applications in practical biomedical research and pharmaceutical fields.
Researchers have applied a new method to study nanoparticles made of cadmium telluride. They used a peculiar feature of this compound: its interaction with light differs depending on the magnetic field.
Scientists are one step closer to building a carbon-recycling system that can harvest solar energy to efficiently convert CO2 and water into liquid fuels. By optimizing many parts of the system, the researchers say, they can now drive two-electron chemical reactions, a substantial advance over one-electron reactions, which are energy inefficient.
Researchers are developing stable and targeted nanocarrier formulations and alternative administration routes. One approach is the targeting of specific sugar receptors expressed on several cancer cells, the mannose and mannose-6-phosphate receptors.
