Using an eNose to better characterize causative bacteria in soft tissue infections

Researchers in Finland have completed a study that concludes that an electronic nose (eNose) can be used to identify some bacteria causing soft tissue infections. This device creates an olfactory profile for each molecular compound in the air. By analyzing

Using a “smart stent” to monitor blood flow

Researchers have developed a stent that is capable of monitoring the flow of blood past it. This sensor can send data wirelessly to an external receiver. By detecting subtle changes in blood flow, it is hoped that this sensor will

New methodology for intra-operatively detecting brain gliomas

Researchers have developed a new surgical imaging method for intra-operative visualization of brain gliomas. They added the pro-drug 5-ALA to experimental models of brain tumors, which produces a glow that can be detected using a scanning fiber endoscope (SFE), which

Clinically Validated 3-D Printed Stethoscope

Researchers from Ontario have developed a clinically validated template for a 3-D printed stethoscope. It uses open source software and costs roughly $3 to make. They hope that this will lead to easier and cheaper access for stethoscopes and other

Refining Cellular Protein Visualization

Researchers have developed a method of more effectively visualizing cellular proteins. Using a refined immunofluorescence technique, they can visualize the spatial distribution of 40 different proteins and their modifications on the same cell. They can also apply this technique for

Developing Technology for Faster and Safer Radiation Therapy

Researchers are developing a new technology to be able to deliver anti-cancer radiotherapy faster and more effectively. The new approach is focused on using accelerator structures that are much more powerful than the systems currently in use.  The hope is

Using a pill to screen for breast cancer

Scientists have developed pill that can be used to detect breast cancer in mice. The pill has two components, a molecule that binds to breast cancer surface proteins and a dye that “lights up” when exposed to near-infrared radiation. Full
