National Science Foundation grants Clemson professors award to develop nanoprobes

CLEMSON The National Science Foundation has granted two Clemson University professors $250,000 to research and develop nanofiber-based probes needles that are 10 times smaller in diameter than a human hair for medical diagnostics. The probes may save both money and time compared to more trad...

UC Davis researchers use heated nanoprobes to destroy breast cancer cells in mice

In experiments with laboratory mice that bear aggressive human breast cancers, UC Davis researchers have used hot nanoprobes to slow the growth of tumors -- without damage to surrounding healthy tissue. The researchers describe their work in the March issue of the Journal of Nuclear Medicine. "We...

'Smart' nanoprobes light up disease

Researchers from Rice University's Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology (CBEN) have developed a "smart" beacon hundreds of times smaller than a human cell that is programmed to light up only when activated by specific proteases. Altered expression of particular proteases is a comm...

Astronomy technology brings nanoparticle probes into sharper focus

...t only for single-molecule imaging, but also for ultrasensitive medical diagnostics. Because scientists frequently use several different colors of nanoprobes to color code genes and proteins, a blended color dot is a common challenge when analyzing images. For every few green or red dots in an image, there ...
