Image-Based Monitoring of Oxygenation in Microfluidic Cell Culture.

Microfluidic devices have been established as versatile platforms to mimic various culture conditions or microenvironments in 2D and 3D tissue models. Oxygen availability in the cellular microenvironment strongly affects the cellular phenotype and metabolism. Therefore, monitoring oxygen tension inside microfluidic devices is essential, as it brings the in vitro conditions closer to real physoxia in cell culture and provides the basis for more reproducible and standardized results with maximal physiological relevance.

Self-powered microfluidic sheet that wraps, flaps and creeps.

The "magic carpet" featured in tales from "One Thousand and One Nights" to Disney's "Aladdin" captures the imagination not only because it can fly, but because it can also wave, flap, and alter its shape to serve its riders. With that inspiration, and the assistance of catalytic chemical reactions in solutions, a team from the University of Pittsburgh's Swanson School of Engineering has designed a two-dimensional, shape-changing sheet that moves autonomously in a reactant-filled fluid.

Reservoir-on-a-Chip Technology Opens a New Window Into Oilfield Chemistry.

With its ability to replicate little slivers of reservoir rocks, microfluidics is giving the oil and gas industry a new way to capture images of interactions between chemicals and hydrocarbons. The biggest advantage this emerging technology holds over more established research tools is that it can capture the images at all.

Microbes screened with a new microfluidic process might be used in power generation or environmental cleanup.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineers have developed a microfluidic technique that can quickly process small samples of bacteria and gauge a specific property that's highly correlated with bacteria's ability to produce electricity. They say that this property, known as polarizability, can be used to assess a bacteria's electrochemical activity in a safer, more efficient manner compared to current techniques.

The growing catalog of solid-state machines

The development of miniature solid-state aircraft points to an important engineering benefit of solid-state machines: their scalability. In his 1959 lecture “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom,” Richard Feynman described the untapped potential of miniaturizing technology, from nanoscale machines to the idea of “swallowing the doctor.”

Mars travelers can use ‘Star Trek’ Tricorder-like features using smartphone biotech: study.

Plans to take humans to the Moon and Mars come with numerous challenges, and the health of space travelers is no exception. One of the ways any ill-effects can be prevented or mitigated is by detecting relevant changes in the body and the body’s surroundings, something that biosensor technology is specifically designed to address on Earth. However, the small size and weight requirements for tech used in the limited habitats of astronauts has impeded its development to date.
