Polymers show promise for lab-on-a-chip technology

...l in the semiconductor industry. But LCPs are less brittle and more pliable than silicon, Elias said, adding that LCP devices could be tailored to respond to specific external stimuli, such as temperature changes and UV radiation exposure, which could makes them easier to activate than silicon. And, perhaps ...

Carnegie Mellon researchers discover new cell properties

...but under excessive force the HGPS lamina was more brittle and eventually fractured. "The mutant HGPS lamina is like an egg shell that cracks when excessive pressure or force is exerted against it," Dahl said. "By contrast, normal lamina resembles the rubbery outer shell of a racquetball, which does not br...

Brittle prions are more infectious

... Medical Institute researcher have discovered that brittle prion particles break more readily into new "seeds," which spread infection much more quickly.
