Vol. 14, No. 8A Graphene and Aptamer Based Liquid Gated FET-Like Electrochemical Biosensor to Detect Adenosine Triphosphate
Here we report successful demonstration of a FET-like electrochemical nano-biosensor to accurately detect ultralow concentrations of adenosine triphosphate. As a 2D material, graphene is …
Vol. 14, No. 8A Molecular Communications Model for Drug Delivery
This paper considers the scenario of a targeted drug delivery system, which consists of deploying a number of biological nanomachines close to a biological target (e.g., a tumor), able to deliver drug molecules in the diseased area.
Vol. 14, No. 8Centrifugal Filter Device for Detection of Rare Cells With Immuno-Binding
Many investigations have shown circulating tumor cells (CTCs) to serve as a significant biomarker of cancer progression and for cancer treatment.
Vol. 14, No. 8Bio-inspired Nanonetworks for Targeted Cancer Drug Delivery
Biomimicry has been a great source of inspiration for many successful engineering solutions to date. Here, we propose to imitate several natural processes…
Vol. 14, No. 7Spatial Resolution Improvement of EEG Source Reconstruction using swLORETA
Electroencephalography (EEG) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) are non invasive neuro-imaging modalities largely used in neurology explorations. MRI is considered…
Vol. 14, No. 73D silicon microstructures: a new tool for evaluating biological aggressiveness of tumour cells
In this work, silicon micromachined structures (SMS), consisting of arrays of 3-µm-thick silicon walls separated by 50-µm-deep, 5-µm-wide gaps, were applied to investigate the behaviour of eight tumour cell lines, with different origins and biological aggressiveness, in a three-dimensional (3D) microenvironment.
