New defibrillator signals doctor of patient's irregular heartbeat or device malfunction

...lure. When a patient's status changes, a built-in microchip of Biotronik's Lumos DR-T implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) sends a signal to a satellite via a small transmitter that can be placed on a nightstand, worn on a belt or kept in a purse. In addition, Biotronik's Home Monitoring system vi...

Scientists discover genetic pathway responsible for breast cancer cell growth

...e human genome project to create a new type of DNA microchip containing the partial DNA sequences of approximately 19,000 genes. Dr. Giguère's team was able to localize where the estrogen receptor was bound in the genome of breast cancer cells, thereby identifying a large number of genes that respond to this h...

Researchers get neurons and silicon talking

...hnology and the biology." With the help of German microchip company Infineon, NACHIP placed 16,384 transistors and hundreds of capacitors on a chip just 1mm squared in size. The group had to find appropriate materials and refine the topology of the chip to make the connection with neurons possible. Biologica...

MIT's molecular sieve advances protein research

...l fluids. Millions of pores can be spread across a microchip the size of a thumbnail. The sieve makes it possible to screen proteins by specific size and shape.In contrast, the current technique used for separating proteins, gel electrophoresis, is time-consuming and less predictable.

Wheat can fatally starve insect predators

...ts, the researchers are beginning work on a single microchip that would be an array of genes from both the Hessian fly and wheat. This will allow the scientists to study insect-plant interactions. Knowing the timing and location of those interactions would enable the scientists to use the promoter tactic only ...
