Mu-Gripper Microbots, A Step Towards Non-invasive Surgical Procedures

Tissue and cell biopsies are important procedures used to investigate cancer, infectious diseases and few disorders. It involves removing a small portion of suspicious cells and tissues from the affected areas and conducting necessary tests. Traditional biopsy procedures involve use of specially designed forceps, and many a times when tissue samples have to be obtained […]

pH Nanosensors to Assess Viability of Transplanted Cells

In cases where patients under go therapeutic cell transplantation treatments, it is essential to monitor and ensure the viability of these transplanted therapeutic cells inside the patient’s body. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland have created non toxic pH nanosensors to assess the cell viability in transplanted cells. Before transplanting, the cells are encapsulated […]
