A new sound-based method of sorting cells will provide a gentler alternative to current methods--and could lead to an earlier diagnosis of some cancers. Sorting cells with sound waves involves using microfluidic devices equipped with a pair of acoustic transducers. The transducers create a wave that in turn creates a pressure node, pushing the cells to the side of the channel; how far each cell moves is in part determined by its size--which allows them to be sorted. The new...

A new system able to detect and monitor bacteria in chronic wounds could lead to better treatment procedures while also reducing the use of antibiotics. Diagnosing chronic wounds has typically been left up to individual clinical judgment, which can vary, and culture-based tests, which sometimes requires waiting days for a result. The new system will simplify the process by detecting and tracking bacterial infection in wounds using endogenous autofluorescence. The process, which...

The world's first unstealable bike can be designed around the idea of building the lock into the bike, for example in the frame. The frame's lower tube can separate and open outward, forming a pair of arms that extend enough to be placed around a solid object like a pole or bike rack. The bike's seat (with the post attached) will then be removed and inserted through the open ends of the arms to form the lock. The integrated lock will act as a powerful theft-deterrent, since breaking...

Easier to use than conventional 2D scanners, 3D thermal scanner could one day help doctors detect certain cancers based on their thermal signatures. Although 2D thermal imaging has been in use for some time, the procedure is complicated and requires that the images be taking from the exact same position every time. In contrast, 3D thermal scanner can be freely moved around the patient to create an accurate 3D thermal map in real-time. Since cancer cells are usually higher in...

The idea is to develop a way to create battery anodes from old tires, which could help cut down on the amount of waste tires in landfills while also providing an efficient energy storage material. The method will involve first subjecting the tires to a proprietary pretreatment and then using pyrolysis to recover the carbon black material. This man-made carbon black material is not only quite similar to graphite, it also resulted in a more efficient battery. When the material proved...

A new test for malaria that uses magnetic fields to detect the parasite's waste in infected blood cells could provide an earlier and reliable diagnosis of the disease. The technique will use magnetic resonance relaxometry (MRR), to detect hemozoin in the blood cells. When the parasite eats the host's hemoglobin, the hemoglobin breaks down releasing iron. The parasite will then convert the iron to hemozoin, which has a magnetic field that will interfere with the spins of hydrogen...

A new technology able to automatically identify different type of plastic could significantly speed up the sorting process while also reducing instances of human error. The system will identify the plastic types by exposing the pieces to a flash of light, which will cause them to fluoresce. That light will then be read by photoelectric sensors, which will measure how long it takes the fluorescent light to fade. Since the polymer materials used to make plastic items have specific...

By capturing wavelengths invisible to the human eye, it is possible to create transparent solar panels that will be placed on windows or device screens without blocking the view. The technology will be based around small, organic molecules able to absorb sunlight wavelengths invisible to the human eye. These materials will be tuned to pick up just the ultraviolet and the near infrared wavelengths that then 'glow' at another wavelength in the infrared. The trapped light waves will...

Nanonsheet material able to cling to irregular skin could provide a more effective treatment for burn victims. The nanosheets will be made by first spinning the biodegradable polymer poly (L-lactic acid) (PLLA) in a test tube of water, breaking the material down into smaller pieces. This mixture will then be poured onto a flat surface, where the pieces overlap and merge to dry into a single sheet. The unique makeup of the nanosheet will allow it to tightly cover even tiny bumps and...
