Smart hydrogel coating creates “stick-slip” control of capillary action

Thumbnail

Coating the inside of glass microtubes with a polymer hydrogel material dramatically alters the way capillary forces draw water into the tiny structures, researchers have found. The discovery could provide a new way to control microfluidic systems, including popular lab-on-a-chip devices.

Superior Resolution for the Biological World

Thumbnail

Traditional fluorescence microscopy has suffered from the resolution limits imposed by diffraction and the finite wavelength of light. Classical resolution is typically limited to about 200 nm in xy. Due to the nanoscale architecture of many biological structures, researchers developed super-resolution techniques, starting in the 1990s, to overcome this classical resolution limit in light microscopy.

Silk structure is secret to regenerating salivary cells

Thumbnail

The silkworm, which produces the essential ingredient for fine silk fabric, also plays a critical role in a new process designed to provide relief for millions of individuals with dry mouth, a devastating oral and systemic health issue. A research team led by The Univ. of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, is the first to use silk fibers as a framework to grow stem cells into salivary gland cells.

First 3-D Printed Aircraft Marks Successful Launch

Thumbnail

The British Royal Navy’s HMS Mersey floats in the English Channel, a gray mass against a blue backdrop. Suddenly, a white winged object appears, darting for the sky. It’s small and could be misperceived as a gull. It carries on upwards.

New experimental, theoretical research could help make more efficient windows

Thumbnail

By tightly integrating experimental and theoretical techniques, a Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory team has provided fundamentally new insights into the specific factors that determine the absorption characteristics of copper complexes.  The results demonstrate that conventional interpretations based on “ligand field theory” are insufficient for capturing the full characteristics of the absorption profile.

Baffled Reactor System

Thumbnail

Asynt Ltd., in conjunction with Innovative Physical Organic Solutions (IPOS), has created a Baffled Controlled Lab Reactor system that offers the ultimate in fast mixing/dispersion. By using specially designed PTFE baffle blades together with a PTFE turbine stirrer, Asynt is now able to offer scientists a new version of their 5,000-mL ReactoMate Controlled Lab Reactor system which is built to mix reactions more quickly and effectively.
