Prodigious Yogurt Can Reveal Cancer

We have a wide range of yogurts available in the supermarket: flavored, light, biologic, probiotic, drinkable, the choice is vast. But the yogurt developed by MIT researcher Sangeeta Bhatia has something more. For years she has been studying and researching to simplify the diagnosis of cancer. The result is an extraordinary yogurt that could soon implement accurate, young disease diagnosis.

3D Printed Fish Remove Toxins and Deliver Drugs

Researchers at UC San Diego announced that they have developed 3D printed microrobots in the shape of fish able to detect and remove toxin from liquid. Smaller than a human hair – only 120 microns long and 30 microns thick – these little creatures multiply quickly: scientists can 3D print hundreds of these fish in seconds.

Medical Microbots Used to Perform Biopsy

When acquiring tissue samples for medical diagnosis, doctors have been confined to bulky and invasive instruments. Unlike the scientists in the 1966  sci-film film Fantastic Voyage, we haven’t been able to shrink a submarine and its human crew in order to let them perform some delicate surgery inside the patient body.

But with recent successful experiments, we may see doctors switching from the single forceps to hordes of so-called microgrippers.

Harvard Creates Half-Man Cyborg Flesh

Bioengineers at Harvard University have created what appears to be the first cyborg tissue. The tissue is a structure of neurons, heart cells, muscle, blood vessels, interwoven with nanowires and transistors.

Organs Could Self-Heal with Nanoneedles

Medical practices of the future could become much more efficient with the help of nanotechnology. During a recent experiment, an international team of scientists used nano-sized needles in order to promote production of new blood cells. If successful, this technology could be applied to the human body to repair damaged organs and nerves.

Nano Product: Catad’Or

No gluten, no peanuts, no soy, no milk, no eggs. An increasing number of people suffer from various food allergies, which force them to constantly scan food packages for allergen information that is often unclear, lacking or even false. But now there is Catad’Or, the allergy sensitive cutlery. When your fork, knife or spoon touches a food containing an allergen it reacts like the human skin.
The cutlery incorporates gold nanoparticles able to detect the proteins in the food that cause the allergic reaction. So instead of you getting an allergic reaction, your cutlery will get it for you!

Nano Product: The Healing Game

Although smart medicines are able to execute various tasks in your body, they often still require human guidance. The Healing Game allows patients to steer their medication by playing a videogame. The game starts with the intake of an intelligent pill full of nano capsules and a substance that makes cancer cells glow.
Control the capsule and go on a “seek and destroy” mission inside your own body. You can even invite your friends and family to help. While gaming is often considered unhealthy, the Healing Game keeps you healthy!
