Sometimes it's the little things in life that count. Such as when you lie as a patient in the ICU of a hospital and you are connected to a plurality of tubes. For us a reason to pick up the tube out of the shadows into the light and honor it with a special. Read our Special

New technique speeds nanoMRI imaging

27/05/2015 - NanoMRI is a scanning technique that produces nondestructive, high-resolution 3-D images of nanoscale objects, and it promises to become a powerful tool for researchers and companies exploring the shape and function of biological materials such as viruses and cells in much the same way as clinical MRI today enables investigation of whole tissues in the human body. read more

Soft-tissue engineering for hard-working cartilage

26/05/2015 - An international study published in the journal Nature Communications points the way toward wider, more effective use of biocompatible materials in repairing human tissues. Focusing on the difficult case of restoring cartilage, which requires both flexibility and mechanical strength, the researchers investigated a new combination of 3-D printed microfiber scaffolding and hydrogels. read more

Designing better medical implants

21/05/2015 - A team of MIT researchers has come up with a way to reduce rejection by the immune system that can happen to implanted devices. In a study appearing in the May 18 issue of Nature Materials, they found that the geometry of devices has a significant impact on how well the body will tolerate them. read more

Computing at the speed of light

20/05/2015 - University of Utah engineers have taken a step forward in creating the next generation of computers and mobile devices capable of speeds millions of times faster than current machines. read more

Liquid-crystal-based compound lenses that work like insect eyes

19/05/2015 - Engineers and physicists at the University of Pennsylvania have shown how liquid crystals can be employed to create compound lenses similar to those found in nature. Taking advantage of the geometry in which these liquid crystals like to arrange themselves, the researchers are able to grow compound lenses with controllable sizes. read more

Microscope allows deep brain exploration

15/05/2015 - A team of neuroscientists and bioengineers at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus have created a miniature, fiber-optic microscope designed to peer deeply inside a living brain. read more

Dye could prevent infection during bone-repair surgery

13/05/2015 - A green dye that sticks to bone grafts becomes antimicrobial with the flick of a light switch and could help reduce the risk of infections during bone-reconstruction surgeries. read more

Putting a new spin on plasmonics

12/05/2015 - Researchers at Finland's Aalto University have discovered a novel way of combining plasmonic and magneto-optical effects. They experimentally demonstrated that patterning of magnetic materials into arrays of nanoscale dots can lead to a very strong and highly controllable modification of the polarization of light when the beam reflects from the array. read more

Lens to turn smartphone into microscope

08/05/2015 - Researchers at the University of Houston have created an optical lens that can be placed on an inexpensive smartphone to magnify images by a magnitude of 120. read more

New material for creating artificial blood vessels

07/05/2015 - Blocked blood vessels can quickly become dangerous. It is often necessary to replace a blood vessel – either by another vessel taken from the body or even by artificial vascular prostheses. Together, Vienna University of Technology and Vienna Medical University have developed artificial blood vessels made from a special elastomer material, which has excellent mechanical properties. read more
