Nanoparticle Nose to Sniff Out Cancer

A team of researchers at the university of Massachusettes, Amherest and Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a “chemical nose” made up of an array of polymers that can not only differentiate non-cancerous cells from cancerous cells but can also tell the difference between metastatic and non-metastatic cancer cell lines. This could be a great developemnt for early [...]

A Silver Lining to Kill Bacteria

A newly developed paint containing silver nanoparticles has been produced, which has anti-bacterial properties. It has been postulated for many years that silver can have anti-bacterial effects. It would seem that silver nanoparticles are even more potent as an anti-bacterial agent then normal silver coatings. If this were to be environmentally viable it would be ideal [...]
