3D cell culture set for space

Growing cells – in a laboratory in space or on earth – forms a fundamental basis of modern microbiology, supporting everything from culturing microbes to novel drug design and growing human tissues for use in research and development. The problem is that cells grown on a 2D Petri dish do not ... Read More

Watch Man-Controlled Bacteria Build A Nanoscale Pyramid

Forget nanobots. Who needs ‘em? Since apparently we can now directly control live bacteria and make them do our bidding. I’m in awe. The feat was accomplished – and extensively documented in the video above – by researchers at the NanoRobotics Laboratory of the École Polytechnique de Montréa... Read More

CEA: Violight UV Cell phone sanitizer

Jonathan Pinsky, Cofounder of Violight, shows the first ever UV cell phone sanitizer. He demonstrates the sanitizer on my Nokia N86. Place your phone inside the portable sanitizer for three minutes and it'll eliminate up to 99.9% of germs and bacteria on your cell phone and other small electroni... Read More
