New microfluidics device detects malignant multiple myeloma cells in blood
As recently reported in the journal Microfluidics, researchers at the American Institute of Physics have developed a new device that can detect and filter cCPCs from small blood samples. The filtering device is able to isolate malignant plasma cells from healthy ones based on the principals of microfluidics. The team designed tiny pillars in ...

thumbnailKick-starting Moore's Law? New 'synthetic' method for making microchips could help
The findings are described in a paper published today in Nature Nanotechnology. "Having a method to sculpt crystals at the nanoscale precisely, quickly, and without the need for traditional top-down processes, presents major advantages for widespread utilization of nanomaterials in technology applications," said Thomas J. Kempa, a chemistry ... 2019-11-18 - Nanotechnology
This super-slippery toilet coating saves water by repelling poop
“It’s this combination of the water and the micro-scale roughness that causes the surface to become so slippery,” says Tak-Sing Wong, an associate professor of mechanical engineering and biomedical engineering and one of the authors of a new paper about the technology published today in Nature Sustainability.
