Dolomite and Lab on a Chip Launch Video Competition to Win $2,500 of Microfluidic Equipment
News Oct 08, 2015
Now in its 19th year, MicroTAS (the International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences) runs from the 25th to 29th of October at the Hwabaek International Convention Center in Gyeongju, Republic of Korea. This exciting competition will give anyone registered for the event the opportunity to win Dolomite microfluidics equipment worth $2,500 by creating a scientific or educational short film on micro- or nanofluidics.
Videos can be fun, artistic, surprising or just unusual, and need to be uploaded to the MicroTAS website (www.microtas2015.org) by the 9th of October to be eligible. Assessment by an international panel of judges will take place at MicroTAS 2015, with the winner receiving a voucher for $2,500 worth of equipment from microfluidics innovator Dolomite.
Microanalysis of Biological Samples for Early Disease DetectionNews
A group of researchers from Osaka University has now developed a nonlinear optical crystal (NLOC) chip, which combines THz waves with a microfluidic device, utilizing the close proximity of the THz wave source and the solution of interest in a microchannel.READ MORE
Novel Green Chemistry Method Improves Pharmaceutical Manufacturing EfficiencyNews
About 70 percent of pharmaceuticals are manufactured using palladium-driven catalytic processes that are either fast or efficient - but not both. Researchers have now developed a green chemistry method that combines aspects of both processes to improve efficiency at a minimal cost of processing time.READ MORE
Radioprotective Drugs Assessed Using Human Gut Organ-on-a-ChipNews
Researchers have published a study using an organ-on-a-chip (Organ Chip) model of the human gut that reveals the intestinal blood vessel cells may play an important part in radiation-induced intestinal injury, and it confirms that a potential radioprotective drug, dimethyloxaloylglycine (DMOG), suppresses the intestine’s responses to radiation injury.READ MORE
