Automated biospecimen thawing: an interview with Dr Rolf Ehrhardt, CEO of BioCision

Automated biospecimen thawing: an interview with Dr Rolf Ehrhardt, CEO of BioCision

Surprisingly, even with decades of cryopreservation research, little progress has been made in the way frozen biospecimens are thawed. It’s still very common for researchers and clinicians to thaw cells and other frozen biological samples in a variety of manual ways ... [More]

A window to the brain: an interview with Professor Guillermo Aguilar, UC Riverside's Bourns College of Engineering (BCOE)

A window to the brain: an interview with Professor Guillermo Aguilar, UC Riverside's Bourns College of Engineering (BCOE)

It is literally a transparent window made of yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ), which we envision to become a suitable cranial implant that allows physicians for optical access to the tissue brain. It would serve the same mechanical function of current cranial implants made of other materials, such as titanium, except that it would enable optical access too, which could be very beneficial for post-operatory diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.

Refrigerating coal-plant emissions would reduce levels of dangerous chemicals in air

Refrigerating coal-plant emissions would reduce levels of dangerous chemicals in air

Refrigerating coal-plant emissions would reduce levels of dangerous chemicals that pour into the air -- including carbon dioxide by more than 90 percent -- at a cost of 25 percent efficiency, according to a simple math-driven formula designed by a team of University of Oregon physicists. [More]
