It’s believed that if it was possible to create a spider’s web as wide as a pencil, it would be strong enough to stop a train. Thanks to its unique properties, this material can find many applications in biomedicine.
These structures can become an alternative to semiconductor cadmium nanocrystals, which will allow using them as a transport system for drug delivery. They make it possible for substances to reach their target locations without affecting the cells, organs, and tissues that they shouldn’t.
KUKA youBot is a small tabletop robot produced by the German company KUKA Roboter. It gave start to a project for the creation of a new sensorless algorithm that is now in development at the International Laboratory of Geometrical Methods in Control and Application.
The synthesis of such compounds is a step towards creating artificial cells. Scientists of ITMO’s Infochemistry Research Center are now embarking on the way to DNA encapsulation.
For over 15 years, scientists have been exploring the nature of carbon dot emission, and this image illustrates the relationship between the emission intensity and the concentration of particles in the dry layer.
The video features an experiment in the localization of biological objects, namely, spores of Lycopodium Clavatum (with an average size of 30 microns), in a quadrupole electrodynamic trap.
Various species of spiders use silk from their spinnerets to produce threads for their webs. In science, these threads can serve as a multifunctional natural material for drug delivery and other medical applications.
Neuroblastoma cells are used in the first stages of testing biocompatibility of nervous system drugs.
Perovskite-based devices could potentially be used to create commercial-purpose full-color displays that would be cheaper and more efficient than their existing OLED counterparts.
A decellularized, nearly-transparent spinach leaf is used as a model for testing thrombolytics. Such models of plant origin can become the alternative to the use of lab animals as test subjects.
