Advance in 'optical tweezers' to boost biomedical research

Much like the Jedis in Star Wars use the Force to control objects from a distance, scientists can use light or optical force to move very small particles. The inventors of this ground-breaking laser technology, known as "optical ...

Autofocusing of microscopy images using deep learning

Optical microscopes are frequently used in biomedical sciences to reveal fine features of a specimen, such as human tissue samples and cells, forming the backbone of pathological imaging for disease diagnosis. One of the ...

Nanobubble-controlled nanofluidic transport

Nanofluidic platforms can offer tunable material transport for biosensing, chemical detection and filtration. Research in the past had achieved elective and controlled ion transport based on electrical, optical and chemical ...

Dinosaur relative's genome linked to mammals

Scientists from the University of Adelaide and South Australian Museum have collaborated with Otago University, New Zealand and a global team to sequence the genome of the tuatara—a rare reptile whose ancestors once roamed ...

Trapping tiny particles: A versatile tool for nanomanipulation

At just 1/1000th of a millimeter, nanoparticles are impossible to see with the naked eye. But, despite being small, they're extremely important in many ways. If scientists want to take a close look at DNA, proteins, or viruses, ...
