  • A novel cellular process to engulf nano-sized materials 16th August 2019
    Nanometers are one billionth of a meter, a metric typically used to measure molecules and scientific building blocks not visible to the human eye. Materials of tens and/or several hundred nanometers in diameter have unique properties, and thus have been widely used in diagnosing and treating various human diseases. One major challenge to use these […]
  • Tiny fluorescent carbon dots could make cancer treatment safer and more effective 16th August 2019
    A pioneering new technique that could make light-based cancer treatment more effective and safer for patients, while reducing its cost, has been developed by researchers from the University of Sheffield.
  • Risk assessment at nanoscale level: A closer look at the mimotope variation analysis 16th August 2019
    Since January 2018 the EU project PANBioRA is developing a modular system for a comprehensive risk assessment of biomaterials. The instrument will be able to compare different biomaterials and help doctors to choose the best suited material for a patient before implantation. Another function of the system is the risk assessment of new biomaterials (synthesized […]
  • Optofluidic chip with nanopore 'smart gate' developed for single molecule analysis 16th August 2019
    A new chip-based platform developed by researchers at UC Santa Cruz integrates nanopores and optofluidic technology with a feedback-control circuit to enable an unprecedented level of control over individual molecules and particles on a chip for high-throughput analysis.
  • A new way to hoard resources in nano-sized factories targeted for biotech 15th August 2019
    The lab of Cheryl Kerfeld at Michigan State University has created a synthetic nano-sized factory, based on natural ones found in bacteria. This research could someday lead to new medical, industrial or bioenergy applications.
  • Nanoscale 'glass' bottles could enable targeted drug delivery 15th August 2019
    Tiny silica bottles filled with medicine and a special temperature-sensitive material could be used for drug delivery to kill malignant cells only in certain parts of the body, according to a study published recently by researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
  • Stronger graphene oxide 'paper' made with weaker units 15th August 2019
    Want to make a super strong material from nano-scale building blocks? Start with the highest quality building blocks, right?
  • Nanocapsule reaches cancer that has spread to central nervous system in mice 14th August 2019
    Cancer that has spread to the central nervous system is notoriously difficult to treat. Now, UCLA researchers have developed a drug delivery system that breaks through the blood-brain barrier in order to reach and treat cancer that has spread to the central nervous system.
  • Nanoparticle therapy targets lymph node metastases 14th August 2019
    Metastasis, in which cancer cells break free from the primary tumor and form tumors at other sites, worsens the prognosis for many cancer patients. The lymph nodes—glands of the immune system located throughout the body—are typically the traveling cells' first destination. Now, researchers have developed a strategy to target metastases in lymph nodes for destruction, […]
  • Solving the big problem of measuring tiny nanoparticles 14th August 2019
    Tiny nanoparticles play a gargantuan role in modern life, even if most consumers are unaware of their presence. They provide essential ingredients in sunscreen lotions, prevent athlete's foot fungus in socks, and fight microbes on bandages. They enhance the colors of popular candies and keep the powdered sugar on doughnuts powdery. They are even used […]
