Micro-manufacturing technology promises a revolution in blood testing

A 3D printed 'lab on a chip' could soon be used to conduct laboratory-scale blood testing that’s affordable, accessible and done in an instant. A scientific team at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM) are working to perfect a fabrication process that will deliver an ID card-sized device that can perform multiple tests with a just few drops of blood. Currently, the device, created as a prototype in UTS’s Protospace 3D printing facilities, allows researchers to conduct multiple blood tests using only a few drops of blood. It promises less of a burden to patients requiring blood testing.

The world's lightest, least expensive motorized wheelchair

A special lightweight, inexpensive motorized wheelchair for kids who have a rare genetic condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) has been developed by the researchers at Brigham Young University (BYU). Spinal Muscular Atrophy affects the ability to crawl, walk, control the heads, lift the arms and even breathe. Because of this degenerative disease, children use wheelchairs. However, since SMA affects most of their muscles, wheeling themselves around is extremely tiring. Motorized wheelchairs would seemingly help, but they are prohibitively expensive, difficult to transport and dangerously heavy. That's where BYU's Engineering Capstone program comes in with their new motorized wheelchair.

Arthritis Wonder: Pain Relieving Cream

G2 Products, a spinoff company focused on the discovery and development of arthritis treatment options, has launched a new product for joint pain sufferers, Arthritis Wonder. In a first-of-its-kind OTC drug, the product offers the freedom from joint pain that osteoarthritis suffers have been seeking, without the need for a prescription. Arthritis Wonder eases the pain and discomfort that comes from OA, giving those with the disease the opportunity to enjoy life again. The patent-pending formula is the accumulation of 8 years of research done by Dr. David Kooyman Professor of Physiology and Developmental Biology at Brigham Young University (BYU). With over 30 million people currently suffering from the most common chronic joint condition, including myself, Arthritis Wonder will undoubtedly change the lives of many joint pain sufferers.

BYU-created mini tool has massive potential

A miniaturized, portable version of a tool now capable of analyzing Mars’ atmosphere - and that’s just one of its myriad possible uses - has been developed by the researchers at Brigham Young University (BYU). For decades mass spectrometers have offered a relatively fast and highly sensitive way to analyze and detect chemical compounds. But their bulky size has been a hindrance, limiting their in-field potential. But after spending 12 years exploring the problem, BYU chemistry professor Daniel Austin, joined by electrical engineering professor Aaron Hawkins and other colleagues, has developed a much smaller spectrometer that still has the capabilities of its larger counterparts. The goal was to take what would otherwise be a huge, benchtop instrument to something that’s small enough to carry with you.

A nanoplasmonic device for high-performance nanotechnology products

Nanoplasmonics deal with creating ultra-compact components for nanoscale photonic devices to match their electronic counterparts. Focusing on the control and manipulation of plasmons at nanometer dimensions, nanoplasmonics combines the strength of electronics and photonics and is predicted to replace existing integrated circuits and photonic devices. It is one of the fastest growing fields of science, with applications in telecommunication, consumer electronics, data storage, medical diagnostics, and energy. In these devices localized heating is an important problem. Bulk metallic layers are generally used to remove heat, which results in spreading the heat and causing a general heating. Therefore, scientists at the Sabancı University (SABANCI) developed a nanoplasmonic device for high-performance nanotechnology products.

Low cost, high performance 3D retinal imaging

Imaging the human retina in-vivo plays a very important role in diagnosing eye and systemic diseases. Accurate and early diagnosis gives the patient better chances of not losing their sight - on average 100 people are registered blind or partially sighted every day in the UK, but over 50 of these cases could be prevented with the state-of-the-art in disease treatment already available if diagnosed in time. Furthermore, the incidence of many eye diseases (lat. Caecitudo) such as age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma increases with age. Therefore, in an ageing society, extensive and accurate screening of the population is required to increase the quality of life of many and reduce the cost burden of public and private health systems that need to cater for the blind. Scientists at the City, University of London (CITY UL) developed an optically simple, potentially inexpensive device for extensive screening of the population for eye disease.
