EPA to Improve Nanotechnology
...ket but not identified as such, or the hundreds of nano
raw materials, intermediate components, and industrial equipment items used by manufacturers today. In addition, second generation usesin electronics, sensors, targeted drugs and active nanostructureshave already begun. In May 2007, Davies authored...
Nanotechnology – to detect and treat ovarian cance
...s with ultrasound to diagnose ovarian cancer. Such nano
ultrasonographic contrast media can pass through the smallest capillaries. These tiny bubbles light up on ultrasound and may be able to show the earliest vascular changes associated with ovarian malignancy. If this is successful, further research wil...
Cell Behavior Better Understood with Nano Probe
probe has been developed by Georgia Tech researchers to decode exactly how a cell or a group of cells communicates with other cells and reacts //to a broad spectrum of complex biomolecules surrounding it. This would help to better create drugs that a...
Sensing Devices to Measure Sleep In the Pipeline
...measure sleep consists of 17 micro sensors and two nano
sensors, connected through a local area network. The sensors are placed in various areas such as mattress, pillow, textiles, wrist straps, seat linings and the frames of glasses. This would enable the patient to give proper data without the patient n...
Sleep Science awakens from deep slumber!
...ng platform consisting of 17 micro sensors and two nano
sensors, connected through a local area network. The project coordinator Dr Evangelos Bekiaris puts the vision in words and says,” The sensors will allow you to sleep at home on, for instance, a mattress with sensors instead of going to a hospital...
Microscopic Nanobombs Blow Apart Breast Cancer Cells
... conditions." When the other researchers saw these nano
explosions, they came up with the idea of using them against cancer cells. "The nanobomb is very selective, very localized and minimally invasive," Panchapakesan said. "It might cause what I would call nanopain, like a pin prick." He is of the opin...
