German researchers are developing a technology that produces cell-based biosensors that could give machines a sense of smell.
A new skin-mounted sensor uses the skin itself as a floating electrode, enabling low-power health monitoring and doubles as an electroluminescent display.
Carbon nanotube-based ethylene sensor establishes fruit ripeness
Paper-based blood test provides “written report” of blood type.
A new type of probe for detecting highly toxic cyanide anions has been developed by Professor F. Li and co-workers at Fudan University, China.
Nitric oxide detectors made of two to four layers of MoS2 incorporated into a field-effect transistor outperform a single-layered device.
For measuring mitochondrial oxygen pressure clinically, just apply a cream on the skin.
A nanoparticle-based nerve agent detector is developed by researchers in Korea
So what is next for nanochemical and biochemical sensor research? Shouldn’t we be trying to find the next glass pH electrode, rather than trying to squeeze that extra fraction of a percent out of our tried and tested materials?
Nuclease activity can be detected by a simple, sensitive, and selective test based on light scattering of carbon nanotubes, with no need for a label.
French scientists have made light-sensitive memory devices by combining carbon nanotubes and silicon nanowires.
University of Southern Mississippi scientists imitated Mother Nature by developing a new, skinny-molecule-based material that resembles cilia, the tiny, hair-like structures through which organisms derive smell, vision, hearing and fluid flow.
