Manufacturing is the production of products across all industries, on a large-scale, using machinery.
Plastics contain and leach hazardous chemicals, including endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) that threaten human health.
Self-sufficiency in waste management and food cultivation is very important from the perspective of upcoming societies, particularly in highly closed surroundings, like a space station. However, there is still a dearth of technology to realize this dream.
In Brazil, researchers at São Paulo State University (UNESP) in Ilha Solteira have developed a film that can replace plastic in food packaging.
The portable device allows rapid detection of nitrogen deficiency - a critical nutrient for plant health. When tested on popular vegetables such as Spinach and Kai-Lan, the device was also able to detect levels of other metabolites; allowing measurement of a wider range of plant stress phenotypes such as drought, heat/cold, saline, and light stress.
It is already possible to produce food with a 3D printer, potentially delivering products that suit consumer preferences regarding taste, texture, cost, convenience, and nutrition.
For the first time, researchers from SMART have engineered a living plant-based sensor for the detection of arsenic in the belowground environment
Researchers think they have found a fountain of youth, and it is unique to a few French Canadian families.
A material that mimics human skin in strength, stretchability and sensitivity could be used to collect biological data in real time. Electronic skin, or e-skin, may play an important role in next-generation prosthetics, personalized medicine, soft robotics and artificial intelligence.
According to researchers from McMaster University and the Montreal Clinical Research Institute, they have identified a “fountain of youth” in a rare genetic marker that is unique to a few French-Canadian families.
Climate change and a growing world population require efficient use of natural resources. Water is a crucial component in food production, and water management strategies are needed to support worldwide changes in food consumption and dietary patterns.
Modern life relies closely on plastics, even though the petroleum-based production creates serious environmental challenges.
Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder are developing a wearable electronic device that's "really wearable"--a stretchy and fully-recyclable circuit board that's inspired by, and sticks onto, human skin.
Researchers from the Universities of Melbourne, York, Warwick and Oxford have shed light on how encapsulated viruses like hepatitis B, dengue and SARS-CoV-2 hijack the protein manufacturing and distribution pathways in the cell - they have also identified a potential broad spectrum anti-viral drug target to stop them in their tracks.
A new food manufacturing company, Nutri V, has been formed by leading vegetable grower Fresh Select and Australia’s national science agency CSIRO.
Gene therapies are being approved for use in Canada but could strain healthcare budgets and exacerbate existing treatment inequities across the country.
A new nanoparticle vaccine candidate developed for the novel coronavirus creates virus-neutralizing antibodies in mice at levels that are 10 times higher than is observed in individuals, who have recovered from the COVID-19 disease.
Dr. Aimee Murray speaks to AZoLifeSciences about her latest research that looks at a way of reducing antibiotic resistance build-up in waterways.
The Multicell PLUS is an exciting addition to the Asynt range of pressure reactors, offering scientists an extremely flexible and customisable device for screening chemical reactions under high pressure conditions.
Researchers from Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), MIT's research enterprise in Singapore, have developed a novel microcarrier for large-scale cell production and expansion that offers higher yield and cost-effectiveness compared to traditional methods, and reduces steps required in the cell retrieval process.
Breast cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer for women around the world, and much effort has been spent in the development of therapies to treat this disease.
