They are billions, and billions of viral particles all over the world. Are they alive? Depends on location, outside of a cell its inert/dormant, so it can’t reproduce or produceContinue reading “So, what is a virus?”

3-D-nanopatterned microfluidic chip:detect Cancer

Medical technology its so amazing nowadays! I recently read “Ultrasensitive detection of circulating exosomes with a 3D-nanopatterned microfluidic chip“an article published by nature Biomedical Engineer (Y. Zeng et al.from University of Kansas) This 3-D-nanopatterned microfluidic chip can successfully detect cancer markers in a drop of blood or in a component of the blood called plasma,Continue reading “3-D-nanopatterned microfluidic chip:detect Cancer”
