New synthetic hydrogels in 3-D cell culture on the market
Dr. Brigitte Angres and Dr. Helmut Wurst earlier worked on the development of synthetic hydrogels in 3-D cell culture at the NMI Natural and Medical Sciences Institute at the University of Tübingen in Germany, with financial support from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
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.
Synthetic hydrogels improve testing of active substances in 3-D cell culture
Synthetic hydrogels improve testing of active substances in 3-D cell culture
Many researchers culture cells in flat dishes, two-dimensional culture systems. A disadvantage is that the cells behave differently than they would in a living organism.
The 3D Nanoscanner
The 3D Nanoscanner
Researchers from the Institute of Micro- and Nanotechnologies in Ilmenau, Germany have developed the new scanning device with a set of highly sensitive needles or cantilevers , each of which is only a few microns wide.
Specialized invisible needles make us see surfaces at the nanoscale
Specialized invisible needles make us see surfaces at the nanoscale
A cantilever is a very thin single needle currently used for quality control at the nanoscale, but to improve and speed up the process scientists are developing an array of needles, a cantilever array, functioning simultaneously.

The achievement of making an object totally invisible could speed things up
One of the brains behind the invisible cloak is Professor Sir John Pendry at Imperial College London. “The cloak design has been around since 2006 when David Smith and I published our paper, but the first implementations were for radar waves.
New nanomaterials unlock new electronic and energy technologies
The collaborative* international research led by the Centre for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN), Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, and the University of Oxford has been published in this week's Science.

Nanoparticles in our cities: any risks for our health?
Dr. Anne Beeldens and colleagues at the Belgian Road Research Centre have tested air purification efficiency by TiO2 NP-containing pavement blocks on parking lanes in Antwerp.
How do nanoparticles impact our environment and us?
How do nanoparticles impact our environment and us?
In the young nanoecotoxicology field researchers such as Dr. Irina Blinova and colleagues at the National Institute of Chemical Physics and Biophysics in Estonia evaluate nanoparticles’ (NPs) interaction with their environment.
How have NGOs responded to nanomaterials’ potential toxic effects?
How have NGOs responded to nanomaterials’ potential toxic effects?
Non-governmental organizations around the world share concern for finding nanomaterials with potential harmful effects in stores. Research shows different nanomaterials cause injures to animal models and it is unclear what the effects would be on humans.
