Pietro Gucciardi – Working towards a single-molecule biosensor
Pietro Gucciardi – Working towards a single-molecule biosensor Until now, few biosensors have had the required sensitivity to detect single molecules. A novel approach for improved biosensor sensitivity has opened new avenues for developing new kinds of biosensors.
The Artificial Finger
The Artificial Finger Now European researchers of the projects NanoBioTact and NanoBioTouch delve deep into the mysteries of touch and have developed the first sensitive artificial finger .
A touchy feely artificial finger
A touchy feely artificial finger An artificial finger could benefit patients with a missing finger in many ways. The most obvious, would be to add sensory feedback to their prosthesis . In addition, remote surgery could also benefit from a well-functioning artificial finger.
Transparent Electronics
Transparent Electronics In the MULTIFLEXIOXIDES project scientist have developed new cost-efficient, long lasting, light, flexible and transparent devices which can display information directly on the windscreen.
Forget the Word Nano
Forget the Word Nano These are key insights from two EC funded initiatives, ProNano and Nanocom , which are joining their forces to tackle the issue of barriers to the commercialisation of European nanotechnologies .
Wooden Bones
Wooden Bones Rebuilding bones out of wood, or cartilage out of algae and chitosan is the most spectacular aspect of this particular bioinspiration field.
A new detection system reveals terrorist attacks on water supply networks
A new detection system reveals terrorist attacks on water supply networks In the 21st century several countries have suffered great losses after terrorist attacks. Although the risk of bioterrorist attacks or accidental contamination of our water supply network is low, the consequences could be fatal.
Mobile Detection System for Contaminated Water
Mobile Detection System for Contaminated Water The technology uses several nano-biological sensors to monitor the presence of several bioterrorism agents in drinking water.
The Magic Touch
The Magic Touch The “ nano wrap ” that is being developed to be fitted around an amputee’s upper arm nerve bundle is the ambitious other part of the Smarthand’s robotic hand project.
