Customised Wound Dressings Made From Tropoelastin

Customised Wound Dressings Made From Tropoelastin

Customized, biomedically applicable materials based on tropoelastin are being developed in a joint project. The material combines biocompatibility, durability, biodegradability and favorable mechanical properties similar to those of skin. Preclinical tests have confirmed that it is suitable for use as a wound dressing material used in the treatment of chronic and complex wounds.

Thermoelectric U-Turn Gains Momentum

Thermoelectric U-Turn Gains Momentum

Thermoelectrics is a business impeded by the use of the toxic rare metal Tellurium. Commendably, there is a trend to alternatives in research but few volume sales as yet in any of the three uses. These are energy harvesting to make electricity where it is needed and the more successful cooling and heating, those last two constituting very-reliable, solid heat pumps.

Smallest Biosupercapacitor Provides Energy for Biomedical Applications

Smallest Biosupercapacitor Provides Energy for Biomedical Applications

The miniaturization of microelectronic sensor technology, microelectronic robots or intravascular implants is progressing rapidly. However, it also poses major challenges for research. One of the biggest is the development of tiny but efficient energy storage devices that enable the operation of autonomously working microsystems - in more and more smaller areas of the human body for example.

Machine Learning to Assess Risk of Schizophrenia in a Blood Sample

Schizophrenia is a devastating disease that affects about 1% of the world's population. Although genetic and environmental components seem to be involved in the condition, current evidence only explains a small portion of cases, suggesting that other factors, such as epigenetic, also could be important.

AI in Drug Discovery Requires Extensive Chemical Libraries

AI in drug discovery is a field that has received an immense increase in interest, uptake, and investment over the past year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While lockdowns forced everyone around the world to explore virtual ways of working, the biopharma industry faced the additional task of quickly developing new drugs for the treatment of COVID-19. Enter the application of AI in drug discovery - a technology that promises to drastically cut down timelines and costs, and potentially, develop safer and more efficacious drugs.

Stretchable Battery That is Powered by Sweat

Scientists have developed a soft and stretchable battery that is powered by human perspiration. The prototype battery consists of printed silver flake electrodes that generate electricity in the presence of sweat. Measuring 2 cm by 2 cm and as flat as a small paper bandage, the battery is affixed to a flexible and sweat absorbent textile that is stretchable and attachable to wearable devices, like watches, wrist bands or arm straps.
