thumbnailTiny biodegradable circuits for releasing painkillers inside the body
Researchers in EPFL's Microsystems Laboratory are now working on a biodegradable implant that would release a local anesthetic on-demand over several days. Not only would this implant reduce ... 2019-08-07 - MEMS technology
thumbnailA ‘cancer lab’ on chip
Finding out you have cancer is bad enough, but to then have to go to hospital for a painful and invasive biopsy to try to identify the exact type of tumour can be deeply traumatic. But that may ...
