...nic signals. Here's how it works. The team uses a microfluidics chip that includes a number of channels measured in nano-metres. The novelty of microfluidics is that it can channel liquids in laminar, or predictable, flow. The floor of this channel is peppe...

Neuronal cell cultures kept on the straight and narrow

...ety's journal Langmuir*, NIST researchers detail a microfluidics technique to culture neuronal cells in relative isolation on a variety of cell-culture surfaces, and to pattern the cells on the surface to study the effects of geometry on cell development. The trick is to mask the substrate with multiple alternatin...

Magnetism and mimicry of nature hold hope for better medicine, environmental safety

...of the new technology, are an integral part of the microfluidics project. The team's findings could have a vast impact on the field of bioanalysis, Hayes says. The key to the method's effectiveness is using nanoscale surface patterns to create a "superhydrophobic" (or water-repellent) surface on which to colle...
