New 3-D printing approach makes cell-scale lattice structures

A new way of making scaffolding for biological cultures could make it possible to grow cells that are highly uniform in shape and size, and potentially with certain functions. The new approach uses an extremely fine-scale ...

Low-cost membrane cleans up light and heavy oils in a single step

Researchers at the University of British Columbia have developed a low-cost membrane that effectively separates oil and water on demand—potentially paving the way for faster cleanups of oil spills and improved treatment ...

Super-resolution microscopy reveals fine detail of cellular mesh

One of today's sharpest imaging tools, super-resolution microscopy, produces sparkling images of what until now has been the blurry interior of cells, detailing not only the cell's internal organs and skeleton, but also providing ...
