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 simple device could help researchers better observe how well different compounds fight the increasingly drug-resistant malaria parasite.
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.
A team at the University of Cincinnati says its sensor is the first lab-on-a-chip able to consistently pinpoint levels of highly electronegative manganese and will be tested in rural Ohio in 2012.
Researchers have created an elastic material bristling with microscopic strands of nickel that can direct the flow of liquids and light.
A Stanford researcher reinvents the chemistry set completely in the form of an inexpensive gizmo modeled after a hand-crank music box.
Maingear's Vybe is the first desktop in our lab with AMD's new six-core Phenom II X6 processor. That chip alone can't save this system from tough competition among mid-ranged gaming PCs, but if the Vybe isn't the best all-around PC at this price, it has some impressive gaming chops. Just be prepared to make a few sacrifices along the way.
FedEx's Package Lab puts thousands of boxes a year to the test to make sure they're up to the rigors of being shipped. CNET Road Trip 2014 checked out the package torture.
