August 14, 2018 With increasing efforts being made to address the current global obesity epidemic, wearable devices and mobile health (“mHealth”) technology have emerged as promising tools for promoting physical activity. However, current literature seems to indicate that these new technologies may serve best as part of a larger overall health plan, rather than working […]Continue Reading ...
August 10, 2018 GNA Biosolutions was named the winner of the American Association of Clinical Chemistry’s (AACC) Disruptive Technology Award competition, held on Monday evening at the 70th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo in Chicago, Illinois. The AACC Disruptive Technology Award recognizes innovative testing solutions that improve patient care through diagnostic performance […]Continue Reading ...
August 3, 2018 Wearable devices are increasingly bought to track and measure health and sports performance: from the number of steps walked each day to a person’s metabolic efficiency, from the quality of brain function to the quantity of oxygen inhaled while asleep. But the truth is we know very little about how well these […]Continue Reading ...
July 5, 2018 A living retina fragment on a chip, working as a model for the eye, will enable eye disease research, as well as the development of personalized treatment strategies. Researcher Andries van der Meer of the University of Twente expects that using an ‘eye-on-a-chip’, less invasive treatment can be found for worsening eyesight […]Continue Reading ...
July 2, 2018 The human body is an extremely complex molecular machine, the details of which can be followed through certain substances; so-called biomarkers. Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to monitor biomarkers live in patients when these are present in minuscule concentrations. Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology have now developed a new technique […]Continue Reading ...
June 18, 2018 Researchers from Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin have successfully tested a new technology for use in the assessment of overweight adolescents with liver disease. Known as ‘time-harmonic elastography’ (THE), the technology enables physicians to determine the disease’s severity without having to resort to invasive liver biopsies. The results of this research have been […]Continue Reading ...
June 5, 2018 Innovative new technology will enable people with dementia to receive round the clock observation and live independently in their own homes, a new study in the Journal PL0S One reports. During this unique study, researchers from the University of Surrey in partnership with Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust have developed […]Continue Reading ...
May 23, 2018 Researchers have developed new technology for decoding neuromuscular signals to control powered, prosthetic wrists and hands. The work relies on computer models that closely mimic the behavior of the natural structures in the forearm, wrist and hand. The technology could also be used to develop new computer interface devices for applications such […]Continue Reading ...
3D Printing Technology and Personalized Medicine Professor Abu Serajuddin At St. John’s, we are building an innovation center in pharmaceutical technology. We are involved with double upping new drug delivery systems, as well as a new processing agreement. In addition, we are focussing on personalized medications.Continue Reading ...
July 11, 2018 A wide range of fetal genetic abnormalities could soon be detected in early pregnancy thanks to a world-first study led by University of South Australia researchers using lab-on-a-chip, non-invasive technology. Biomedical engineers Dr Marnie Winter and Professor Benjamin Thierry from UniSA’s Future Industries Institute (FII) and the ARC Centre of Excellence in […]Continue Reading ...
July 2, 2018 Cytosurge AG, a Swiss company that develops, manufactures and distributes scientific high-precision nanotechnology instruments and robotic systems based on its patented FluidFM® technology, and Bruker Corporation, one of the world’s leading analytical instrumentation companies, have entered into a new partnership. Thanks to this Premium partnership, researchers can combine the femtoliters scale fluid […]Continue Reading ...

June 18, 2018 A joint paper by Kazan Federal University and Tatarstan Republican Clinical Hospital appeared in Frontiers in Medicine. As the publication describes, autologous cells of stromal vascular fraction were transplanted to a 36-year-old man with the use of fibrin matrix. The patient, whose injury had been caused by a fall, then has been […]Continue Reading ...
May 25, 2018 Developing new medicines to treat pulmonary fibrosis, one of the most common and serious forms of lung disease, is not easy. One reason: it’s difficult to mimic how the disease damages and scars lung tissue over time, often forcing scientists to employ a hodgepodge of time-consuming and costly techniques to assess the […]Continue Reading ...
May 17, 2018 AstraZeneca is the first pharmaceutical company to work with Emulate to develop and embed it’s Organ-on-Chips technology in its laboratories Studies with the technology aim to gain new insights into disease mechanisms Emulate, Inc. has formed a collaborative partnership with AstraZeneca’s Innovative Medicines and Early Development (IMED) Biotech Unit to embed its […]Continue Reading ...
