Self-powered integrated microfluidic point-of-care low-cost enabling (SIMPLE) chip.

Portable, low-cost, and quantitative nucleic acid detection is desirable for point-of-care diagnostics; however, current polymerase chain reaction testing often requires time-consuming multiple steps and costly equipment. We report an integrated microfluidic diagnostic device capable of on-site quantitative nucleic acid detection directly from the blood without separate sample preparation steps.

Viruses in microfabricated channels produce superior supercapacitors.

Scientists in the US have devised a microfabrication method that uses capillary channels in a photoresist to position nanorods of the tobacco mosaic virus (TMV).

From extended nanofluidics to an autonomous solar-light-driven micro fuel-cell device.

Miniaturized devices such as microsensors often require an independent, equally miniaturized power supply. Searching for suitable systems, scientists have now developed a fully integrated microfluidic device that produces hydrogen fuel and converts it into electrical energy based on photocatalysis. It works fully autonomously and delivers enough hydrogen energy to power a microsensor for daily data transmission.

Good news for the treatment of retinal diseases using the organ-on-a-chip approach.

A joint research team from the Graduate Schools of Engineering and Medicine at Tohoku University has recapitulated a pathological condition of retinal diseases on a chip. They first cultured human retinal cells and vascular endothelial cells, mimicking the outermost structure of the retina.

New ability of immune cells unveiled: research could lead to better treatment for lung injury.

A major discovery about a set of immune cells, published in the journal Science Advances, started with a Creighton University physics professor going a little farther on an experiment than was initially planned.
