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
The first clinical application of Polish cardiac surgery robot during surgery is planned for next autumn, as announced last Friday during the conference at the Foundation for Cardiac Surgery Development in Zabrze (Silesia).
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.
Silesian scientists have developed an antibacterial material for 3D printing. With 3D printers, it can be used to create medical devices or implants, on which bacteria will not grow. The invention has recently been commercialised.
We have high hopes for innovativeness and export of our pharmaceutical and medical products, Alicja Adamczak, President of the Patent Office said on Monday. She added that Poland is in the sixth place among cosmetics exporters in Europe.
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.
Quantum money - by definition - would be impossible to counterfeit and could be spent completely anonymously. But before we start using it, it has to be checked whether the money can really be transferred safely and whether they are really impossible to counterfeit. It has been tested by scientists, including researchers from Poznań.
Innovative cooling clothing and underwear, designed to protect mine rescuers against fire, static electricity and overheating of the body, have been developed by a Polish consortium, led by the Central Institute for Labour Protection - National Research Institute.
