Bacteria ferry nanoparticles into cells for early diagnosis, treatment

...ble to insert relatively large structures, such as sensors and hollow filaments called carbon nanotubes, into the interiors of cells. The sensors could make it possible to monitor activities inside a single cell for the early detection of cancer ...

Weizmann Institute scientists develop a general 'control switch' for protein activity

...ns are used in industrial processes, as biological sensors and in other applications. The possibility of controlling these applications – strengthening or slowing the rate of protein activity in an immediate and reversible manner – can be of great value....

NASA-funded robotic sub finds bottom of world's deepest sinkhole

...ehicle as it explored the cenote. It also used the sensors to create maps of the sinkhole’s interior via a technique called simultaneous localization and mapping, or SLAM. Prior to the DEPTHX field experiment, SLAM had been used for navigating in buildings and mines, but had never operated in an underwater e...

The longest carbon nanotubes you've ever seen

...rials--could ultimately find use in smart fabrics, sensors and a host of other applications. To grow the aligned bundles of tiny tubes, the researchers combined advantages of chemical vapor deposition (CVD), a technique for creating thin coatings that is especially common in the semiconductor industry, wi...

Magnetic computer sensors may help study biomolecules

...hes called "spin valves"—commonly used as magnetic sensors in the read heads of high-density disk drives—also show promise as tools for controlled trapping of single biomolecules. The arrays might be used in chip-scale, low-power microfluidic devices for stretching and uncoiling, or capturing and sorting, la...
