Regenerative medicine breakthrough
Researchers have developed a new technology, Tissue Nanotransfection, that can generate any cell type of interest for treatment within the patient's own body. This technology may be used to repair injured tissue or restore function of aging tissue, including organs, blood vessels and nerve cells.
Faster, more efficient way to sniff out explosives
Scientists report a new step toward a more efficient monitoring method that uses quantum dots to quickly sniff out and identify five dangerous compounds.
Swimming with sensors
Sensors printed onto the sleeves of wetsuits could alert the wearer to contaminated water. Navy divers could also use the sensors to locate underwater explosives, such as mines.
Lithium Air - batteries on steroids
Better traction batteries will lead to better batteries for energy harvesting. After all, both need to affordably pack more energy in a given space while improving battery life, fast charging and affordability.
Perpetuum - a vibration harvesting company
Having started by looking at piezoelectrics and faced with what it saw as their present day limitations of reliability and sometimes high internal resistance, Perpetuum follows the more proven route of electrodynamic harvesting.
Printed electronics for active RFID and RTLS
IDTechEx look at aspects relevant to printed electronics from the Active RFID and Real Time Locating Systems RTLS conference.
The Prosperous Market for RFID
The market for RFID continues to surge forward, with investments, acquisitions and orders at record levels. The premier European IDTechEx conference RFID Europe, on the 18-19 September in Cambridge UK, will air all these aspects.
RFID Profit - the Taboo Subject
In any rapidly emerging market sector, there are those that make bold initiatives but miss their targets and there are those that quietly create profitable businesses. So it is with RFID, where many companies are reviewing their strategies after disappointment while others are succeeding. However, as far as the press and the analysts are concerned, profit is a taboo subject. Until now.
