In the newest issue of Advanced Science, researchers from Nanjing expose the advantages of using conjugated polymer nanoparticles for DNA sensing.
A near-infraread-excitable persistent luminescence phosphor is synthesized using mesoporous silica nanoparticles as a template.
Researchers from Teltow (Germany) managed to shift the switching temperature of the reversible bidirectional shape-memory effect to the physiological range.
Nanoparticle-hydrogel composites have many potential uses. The new issue of Advanced Science reviews the concept, design, and application of such materials.
A flexible wide-field endoscope utilising blue excitation light provides label-free contrast of tissue based on fluorescence lifetime imaging of tissue autofluorescence. Fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) of tissue autofluorescence has been shown to provide labelfree contrast between different types and states of tissue. Clinical FLIM can combine lifetime contrast with morphological information to provide a direct […]
A simple method for 3D patterning of cell co-cultures has been developed based on capillary forces in a nanostructured microchannel.
Dr. Mehdi Jorfi and Prof. E. Johan Foster review the applications of nanocellulose in various biomedical applications.
A group at the University of Adelaide have developed an intracellular GSH-responsive drug delivery system with enhanced cellular uptake capability.
New research describes the use of polymers that can bind siRNAs into nanoscale assemblies that do not disassemble until they are irradiated with UV light.
Researchers have developed a hydrogel system containing a spatial gradient of siRNA and studied its effects on encapsulated cells.
