Good timing: NIST/CU collaboration adds timing capability to living cell sensors

10-Feb-2012

Individual cells modified to act as sensors using fluorescence are already useful tools in biochemistry, but now they can add good timing to their resumé, thanks in part to expertise from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).With the added capability to track the timing of ...

Sensors Manufacturers Aim to Develop Miniaturized, High-Performance, Yet Low-cost Sensors, Notes Frost & Sullivan

The global demand for highly selective, sensitive and cost-effective sensors is rising

30-Nov-2011

Over the years, the basic principle of sensor operation has remained unchanged and so has the working methodology of advanced sensors. What has changed, however, is the type of materials and sensing principles employed in the manufacture of new sensors. Sensing technologies are expected to go ...

MIT: Tiny stamps for tiny sensors

New glass stamp may make cheaper, more precise biosensors

21-Oct-2011

Advances in microchip technology may someday enable clinicians to perform tests for hundreds of diseases — sifting out specific molecules, such as early stage cancer cells — from just one drop of blood. But fabricating such “lab-on-a-chip” designs — tiny, integrated diagonistic sensor arrays on ...
