Is your battery half full or half empty?

Dear Sir or Madam,

Have you experienced that too? You would like to announce that you are late for an appointment, but the battery of your mobile phone is empty. You want to quickly pick up a few crumbs in the morning with the hand vacuum cleaner, but it is not loaded. Annoying situations - but also completely harmless. It looks different when medical devices are affected. For patients it is important that this technique always works. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces are currently working on battery cells with increased energy density and a long service life. These will initially be tested on electric vehicles and wind turbines. But research knows no boundaries and so the findings could also enrich medical technology. Find out more in this news.

Have a good start into the week,

Simone Ernst

Mean spikes fight microbes

Special

Whether it’s toilet lids or medical exam tables: hospitals and medical offices have many surfaces that must be kept sanitary and clean at all times. A variety of cleaning products and coatings are effective ways to keep these settings clean. In this COMPAMED-tradefair.com interview, Oliver Sonntag from Nano-Care Deutschland AG introduces a particularly "mean" coating. It literally impales bacteria and viruses and renders them harmless.

Nanotechnology-enhanced biochip

The difficulty in spotting minute amounts of disease circulating in the bloodstream has proven a stumbling block in the detection and treatment of cancers that advance stealthily with few symptoms. With a novel electrochemical biosensing device that identifies the tiniest signals these biomarkers emit, a pair of NJIT inventors are hoping to bridge this gap.

Imaging technology will offer new clues to embryonic development

Soon after conception, an embryo's circulatory system connects to that of its mother. Complications that occur at this critical time can result in miscarriage or birth defects with long-term chronic conditions. Unfortunately, limitations in imaging technologies prevent researchers from fully understanding the cellular-level events leading up to this crucial point.

New glues: adhesive formed from bee spit and flower oil

Honey bees spend hours each day collecting pollen and packing it into tidy bundles attached to their hind legs. But all of that hard work could instantly be undone during a sudden rainstorm were it not for two substances the insect uses to keep the pollen firmly stuck in place: bee spit and flower oil.
