By growing calcium phosphate structures on an organic matrix, scientists obtain specific cell cultures.
The robot is used to test new sensorless control algorithms, which provide safety for humans working alongside industrial robots.
The image was taken during an experiment devised to test the use of spider silk in the creation of biocompatible materials – a promising medium for targeted drug delivery and nerve tissue regeneration.
The picture demonstrates the FESTO robot vision cell, consisting of a Mitsubishi robot, its auxiliaries, and a protective case, which is used by students as a training platform for working with industrial robots.
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.
