DPZ-Researchers develop suitcase laboratory for rapid detection of the Ebola virus

New method is 6 to 10 times faster than the current techniques with equal sensitivity

14-Jan-2015

No electricity, no reliable cold chain, no diagnostic equipment available – scientists in field laboratories who diagnose and deal with Ebola infections often work under challenging conditions. Researchers at the DPZ have developed Diagnostics-in-a-Suitcase, which contains all reagents and ...

Compact batteries enhanced by spontaneous silver matrix formations

Scientists use x-rays to map internal atomic transformations and advance promising lithium-based batteries

12-Jan-2015

In a promising lithium-based battery, the formation of a highly conductive silver matrix transforms a material otherwise plagued by low conductivity. To optimize these multi-metallic batteries - and enhance the flow of electricity - scientists needed a way to see where, when, and how these ...

Measurable for the first time: How bio molecules react to lack of space

Sensor demonstrates lack of space in living cells

07-Jan-2015

Proteins and other bio molecules are often analysed exclusively in aqueous solutions in test tubes. But it is uncertain if these experimental studies can be transferred to the densely-packed cellular environment. The Bochum-based researchers from the team of Junior Professor Dr Simon Ebbinghaus ...

DNA origami could lead to nano 'transformers' for biomedical applications

Tiny hinges and pistons hint at possible complexity of future nano-robots

07-Jan-2015

If the new nano-machines built at The Ohio State University look familiar, it's because they were designed with full-size mechanical parts such as hinges and pistons in mind. The project is the first to prove that the same basic design principles that apply to typical full-size machine parts can ...
