Greater accuracy in gauging blood coagulation
Thrombin plays a key role in various pathologies of the haemostatic system. Overexpression of thrombin can result in thrombosis, whereas its underexpression might lead to haemophilia. Therefore, accurate monitoring ...
'Dark plasmons' transmit energy
Microscopic channels of gold nanoparticles have the ability to transmit electromagnetic energy that starts as light and propagates via "dark plasmons," according to researchers at Rice University.
