New Series of Sequencing Instruments to Lower Analysis Costs

A new line of next-generation sequencing instruments was designed to bring this technology into a price range that will allow laboratories to completing human whole-genome sequencing projects at a cost today of about 1,000 USD per genome with the intent to lower this cost eventually to around 100 USD per genome.

Image: The new microneedle patch was made more flexible by developing a base of molded thiol-ene-epoxy-based thermoset film. This version conformed well to deformations of the skin surface and each of its 50 needles penetrated the skin during a 30-minute test. A flexible base combined with stainless steel needles could make the patch an effective alternative for various applications (Photo courtesy of KTH Royal Institute of Technology).

Skin Patch with Microneedles May Provide Improved Alternative for Various Applications

Researchers have developed flexible and stretchable patches with rigid stainless steel microneedles for transdermal biointerfacing. Such microneedle patches could enable more comfortable yet effective delivery of drugs, extraction of physiological signals for fitness monitoring devices, extracting body fluids for real-time monitoring of glucose, pH level and other diagnostic markers, as well as skin treatments in cosmetics and bioelectric treatments.

Novel Biocompatible Patch Repairs Heart Damage in Rat Model

A team of Australian and British bioengineers has developed an electrically active biocompatible insert that can repair damage to electro-responsive tissues, such as the brain, heart, and nervous system without need of sutures. More...

Synthetic Hydrogel System for Growth of Intestinal Organoids

A process for using artificial hydrogel matrices to grow miniature organs (organoids) derived from stem cell precursors was described in a recent paper. More...

Lung and Tracheal Tissue Expected to Aid Respiratory Disease Research

By modifying a technique for growing cultured intestinal tissue, researchers have developed a tissue-engineered model of the lung and trachea, which contains the diverse cell types present in the human respiratory tract. More...
