First Coffee Produced with Cellular Agriculture

First Coffee Produced with Cellular Agriculture

Researchers have successfully produced coffee cells in a bioreactor through cellular agriculture. The innovation can help to make the production of coffee more sustainable. The first batches produced in a laboratory in Finland smell and taste like conventional coffee.

New Programmable Gene Editing Proteins Found Outside of CRISPR System

New Programmable Gene Editing Proteins Found Outside of CRISPR System

Within the last decade, scientists have adapted CRISPR systems from microbes into gene editing technology, a precise and programmable system for modifying DNA. Now, scientists have discovered a new class of programmable DNA modifying systems called OMEGAs (Obligate Mobile Element Guided Activity), which may naturally be involved in shuffling small bits of DNA throughout bacterial genomes.

Electroconvulsive Therapy to Effectively Treat Major Depression

Electroconvulsive Therapy to Effectively Treat Major Depression

Electroconvulsive therapy reduces deaths by suicide among older adults with depression in the months immediately following hospitalization, researchers report. As suicide risk is highest just after hospitalization among those with depression, the therapy could save lives.

World's First Additively Manufactured Connected Stethoscope

World's First Additively Manufactured Connected Stethoscope

The SKOP is a medical device for remote auscultation. It provides excellent listening quality, essential for emergency situations and for isolated patients. SKOP takes inspiration from nature, using a biomimetic design based on the human ear to maximize performance. The SKOP geometry can only be additively manufactured using ultrafast 3D printing.

Stretching the Capacity of Flexible Energy Storage

Some electronics can bend, twist and stretch in wearable displays, biomedical applications and soft robots. While these devices' circuits have become increasingly pliable, the batteries and supercapacitors that power them are still rigid. Now, researcher report a flexible supercapacitor with electrodes made of wrinkled titanium carbide — a type of MXene nanomaterial — that maintained its ability to store and release electronic charges after repetitive stretching.

Tiny Robots Could Deliver Drugs Directly to Our Central Nervous System

Tiny Robots Could Deliver Drugs Directly to Our Central Nervous System

A new study investigates tiny tumbling soft robots that can be controlled using rotating magnetic fields. The technology could be useful for delivering drugs to the nervous system. In this latest study, researchers put the robots through their paces and showed that they can climb slopes, tumble upstream against fluid flow and deliver substances at precise locations to neural tissue.
