Before a new therapy can be developed, basic research in the laboratory has to be done. Physicists, biochemists and physicians get to the bottom of open questions that determine whether or not a new approach is successful. To this end, the researchers need to know the biological processes that happen at cellular and molecular level. Read more

New Rapid Test for Stainless Steel Surfaces

24/04/2014 - KorroPad is the name given to a new rapid colour test developed at BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing that enables stainless steel surfaces to be tested inexpensively and rapidly and, most importantly, also by non-specialists. read more

Space-Tested Fluid Flow Concept Advances Diagnoses

22/04/2014 - A new medical-testing device is being prepped to enter the battle against infectious disease. This instrument could improve diagnosis of certain diseases in remote areas, thanks in part to knowledge gained from a series of investigations aboard the International Space Station on the behavior of liquids. read more

Multilayer Polymers Spring into Action

16/04/2014 - Flexible plastics that turn mechanical vibrations into electrical energy could spur the development of self-powered sensors and devices. read more

New Quick Tests for Food and Water

15/04/2014 - New test methods developed by the Vienna University of Technology are extremely sensitive, simple and fast and can reliably detect dangerous microorganisms as well as allergens in food, pathogens in water, or genetically modified organisms. read more

Tracking the HI Virus with High-resolution Microscopy

11/04/2014 - Experts from science and industry are working on new methods of microscopy and advancing microscopy technology to improve our ability to study and understand the molecular processes of HIV infection. read more

A Modern Twist on Young’s Slits

10/04/2014 - In the eighteenth century, scientists faced a conundrum: is light a wave or a particle? One of strongest pieces of evidence to support the ‘wave view’ — the landmark double-slit experiment — was reported in 1804 by the scientist Thomas Young. read more

Need for Reoperation prevented 96 Percent of Time

09/04/2014 - Unique laboratory testing during breast cancer lumpectomies to make sure surgeons remove all cancerous tissue spares patients the need for a repeat lumpectomy in roughly 96 percent of cases at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, a success rate much higher than the rate nationally, a Mayo study shows. read more

Microscopic Detection of Protein Relevant for Cancer

08/04/2014 - Protein complexes, have important functions in the cell. Their composition from subunits can only be determined indirectly or with extreme time-effort. Scientists at the INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials are currently developing a novel microscopy technology for the direct detection of such individual subunits of protein complexes in the cell membrane of intact cells. read more

Slimmed Down for a Better Fit

04/04/2014 - A thinner probe array that uses a silicon-based microstructure could underpin safer neural implants. read more

Spinning Drops of Blood

03/04/2014 - Better diagnosis of parasitic infections: British scientists have now developed a simple chip-based method for enriching rare cells in blood samples. This allows the detection limit for the parasites that cause malaria and sleeping sickness to be lowered by two to three orders of magnitude. read more
