Scientists find nanowires capable of detecting individual viruses

...tect and treat. The nanowire arrays detect viruses suspended in fluids, whether bodily or otherwise. Lieber says that any anti-bioterror device built around nanowires' virus-detecting capabilities would most likely marry the technology with a microfluidic apparatus that would draw in air, suspend any airborne ...

Counting foxes before the last tally-ho

...here was no change in fox numbers when hunting was suspended for nearly a year during the foot and mouth epidemic in 2001. IFAW campaigner Josey Sharrad, said: "This research demolishes arguments by the hunting lobby that foxes need to be killed to prevent a population explosision. It will also allow us to mon...

Muscling their way into the food chain: Zebra mussels alter fish populations in the Hudson River

...lt zebra mussels feed by grazing on food particles suspended in the water column. There are so many zebra mussels in the Hudson River that they filter all of the water in the river every 1-4 days, removing the microscopic plants and animals that make up their diet. This can be problematic for fish species that...

Controlling biomolecules with magnetic 'tweezers'

.... Magnetic particles 2 to 3 micrometers across are suspended in a fluid and injected into the device. The surface of a thin membrane enclosing the fluid is dotted with an array of thin film pads made of a nickel-iron alloy. When a magnetic field is applied, each particle is attracted to the closest nickel-iron...

Carnegie Mellon U. develops microgel to recover enzymes for manufacturing, research assays

...oom temperature, individual microgel particles are suspended in solution, but lowering the temperature causes the microgel particles to cluster together and precipitate from solution. To test these enzymatic microgel particles, the Carnegie Mellon chemists used an analogue of lactose that changes color when ...

Making the most of stem cells
