New stretchable electrodes created to study stresses on cardiac cells
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Engineers at Purdue and Stanford universities have created stretchable
electrodes to study how cardiac muscle cells, neurons and other cells react to mechanical stresses from heart attacks, traumatic brain injuries and other diseases.
The devices are made by injecting a l...
Fibrin Fibers More Stretchable Than Natural Fiber
Scientists have discovered that fibrin fibers could stretch to three times its length before going back to its original state, while some could even stretch to six times// their original length before breaking.
Fibrin involved in blood clotting is developed in the blood from a soluble protein...
