Biofunctionalized native spider silk fibers can be used in a wide spectrum of biomedical and biotechnological applications.
Researchers have developed a biosensor to detect Sortase A (SrtA) in chronic wounds to assist in early diagnosis of infection.
A microRNA-responsive drug release system will strengthen the selectiveness of the photodynamic therapy system.
The BioTexValve demonstrates the potential of bio-inspired textile-reinforcement for the fabrication of functional tissue-engineered heart valves for the aortic position.
This new tissue engineering approach may be useful to establish a technology for regenerative medicine and drug discovery using the patient’s own neurons.
Researchers describe a novel “body-on-a-chip” device that consists of 14 interconnected compartments, each representing a different organ of the human body.
A prototype theranostic device based on thermally triggered release of a fluorescent antibiotic from polymer coated porous silicon films is developed.
Researchers develop conducting graphene–PLGA fiber electrode that promotes muscle cell growth, and that could stimulate muscle regeneration.
easySTORM: a robust, lower-cost approach to localization and TIRF microscopy A broad range of new microscopy methodologies have recently been introduced collectively referred to as “super-resolved microscopy (SRM)”. They offer resolution measured in tens of nanometers or less – overcoming the diffraction limit and thereby opening up a wealth of new possibilities for biological studies. […]
To avoid an undesired protein adsorption, nanoparticles were masked with poly(2-oxazoline)s resulting in a stealth coating comparable or superior to PEG.
