In medical diagnostics, the importance of genetic code assays is growing day by day and modern molecular biology could not do without it. Current DNA analysis techniques, however, are far from perfect. Working on a record high speed genetic research tool Curiosity Diagnostics, a spin-off company of the Warsaw Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences and part of the Scope Fluidics group, has developed a new method of DNA analysis, combining the key advantages of the two c
Printed 3D models of the heart or blood vessels are being made at the Laboratory of Individual Medical Implants in Bionanopark in Łódź. Models reflect the heart of a particular patient in detail and help the cardiac surgeons prepare for complicated surgeries.
Ultra-thin conductive lines can now be more than 400 times thinner than human hair. The company XTPL has perfected their printing technology, reaching the line width of 124 nanometers. They can be used to produce flexible solar cells or displays with unprecedented image sharpness.
The nucleic acids DNA and RNA are composed of nucleotides. Their analogues, in which the original skeleton is replaced by another, more stable one - can effectively fight the bacteria. The problem is that bacterial cells do not receive them from the environment. Vitamin B12 might help and - like the Trojan horse - smuggle them into the cell.
