Ludwig Maximilian University physicists were able to show how biological motors and molecules can be used to carry out precise measurements of magnetic materials.
Scientists have created microbe-sized beads that can utilize energy in the environment to self-propel upstream by purely physical means.
When a missile or meteor strikes the earth, the havoc above ground is obvious, but the details of what happens below ground are harder to see.
Scientists at EPFL have developed a new lab-on-a-chip technique to analyze single cells from entire population. The new method, which uses beads and microfluidics can change the way we study mixed populations of cells, such ...
Traditionally, plastic recycling processes involve using a lot of water. In order to avoid this waste, Ak Inovex from Mexico developed a new green technology that doesn't require liquids, and has the capacity to process materials ...
Following on from the successful launch of the UK Good Scrub Guide, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) has now released an Australia specific version of the Guide, freely available for download.
Scientists from the IZW led by Alex Greenwood publish in PLOS ONE a simple way to retrieve small genomes from a mix of various organisms.
Rice University researchers are using magnetic beads and DNA "springs" to create chains of varying flexibility that can be used as microscale models for polymer macromolecules.
A new technique to identify the type of shell used to make early, decorative beads could help archaeologists understand more about early human trading.
A new study by scientists at the University of York has shed new light on the use of mollusc shells as personal adornments by Bronze Age people.
