A simple device could help researchers better observe how well different compounds fight the increasingly drug-resistant malaria parasite.
University of British Columbia researchers invent a silicone chip they say could revolutionize genetic analysis by allowing individual cells to fall into place like balls in a pinball machine.
A team of BYU engineers and chemists figures out how to interface macro levels of liquid onto their microscopic silicon chip to detect viruses at even very low concentrations.
Researchers have developed a chip that can be used to perform more than 1,000 experiments simultaneously.
Scientists synthesize human airway tissue, and in hopes of finding better asthma medication, watch it react to a variety of chemicals.
Researchers have created an elastic material bristling with microscopic strands of nickel that can direct the flow of liquids and light.
A "sonic screwdriver" uses acoustic force to build tartan-patterned tissue with the potential to repair damaged nerves.
A Stanford researcher reinvents the chemistry set completely in the form of an inexpensive gizmo modeled after a hand-crank music box.
Using the same tech a destroyer uses to detect a submarine, a new diagnostic tool listens for the sound of popping vapor nanobubbles -- a telltale sign that malaria parasites are dining.
