Physical manipulation of microscopic structures and proteins allows scientists to alter cell biology.
For most, this small scale approach provides a vital link between natural responses in cells and medical intervention. This approach could open up new opportunities in cell biology, biotechnology, and medication.
At the heart of this is DNA origami. This recent technique in the creation of hybrid structures takes DNA and proteins to form new, more beneficial components. It is the work of Florian Praetorius and Prof. Hendrik Dietz of the Technical University of Munich and is sure to replicate elsewhere.… Read More
Nanotechnology is rapidly expanding into multiple industries with impressive results. One of the most interesting has to be the medical industry, with surgery and healthcare provision.
Nanotechnology allows developers to create new structures and systems on a microscopic scale to improve options for patients. One area of interest for many researchers is in tissue development.
Bio-engineered tissues help with transplants, surgical procedures, and recovery from injury. Nanotechnology reduces the scale and takes it into new territory. This is what is happening at University of California San Diego, where scientists have new nanotech 3D printed blood vessels.… Read More
Nanotechnology is no longer a science bound to the world of science fiction. Radical breakthroughs in particle construction and function mean that they are real and ready for use.
Often, the focus lies in the initiatives in the world of healthcare, electronics, energy generation and even the military. There is always that consumer market that cannot be readily ignored.… Read More
The world of science and technology is one that is continuously changing and evolving. Currently, one of the hottest buzzwords in scientific and technological is nano-manufacturing. This is a process through which nanoscale materials are made. Nanoscale, in this case, refers to a length of between 1 and 100 nanometers.
Nanomaterials are usually produced to magnify the unique characteristic of the material in question. Nanomaterials may end up having unique electrical, catalytic, mechanical, thermal or even imaging capabilities. The versatile nature of nanotechnology and nanomaterials make them quite useful in a wide range of industries from the military to medicine and even down to the industrial sectors.… Read More
Nanotechnology is slowly taking over the world within a diverse array of industries. These microscopic nano-particles are so broad in their material composition and purpose that the potential applications are countless.
Much of the focus lies within medical care and pharmaceutical work. However, there are also many modern developments related to cleaning products.
Nano Technology Used For Robot Cleaners
Here we will look at some of the different technological advancements in cleaning products, materials, and in robot cleaners, too within the niche of pool cleaning.
How can nano-coatings on pools reduce the need for intense cleaning? Can robotic cleaning devices take advantage of nanotech in cleaning operations? Also, is a self-cleaning pool viable?… Read More
Deoxyribonucleic acid, more commonly known as DNA is a molecule that carries genetic information in human beings as well as other living things.
This information is used to influence the growth, development, functioning and even reproduction of living things. This makes DNA one of the most interesting molecules in nature.… Read More
