In nanotechnology, a particle is defined as a small object that behaves as a whole unit in terms of its transport and properties. It is further classified according to size: in terms of diameter, fine particles cover a range between 100 and 2500 nanometers, while ultrafine particles, on the other hand, are sized between 1 and 100 nanometers.
Ghent University’s concentrated on a technique for the safe engineering of therapeutic cells with photothermal nanofibers for the past decade.
Nanoparticles and nanocages are attractive materials that may be applied in color agents, catalysts, and drug delivery.
Scientists and faculty of Vanderbilt University are in search of the “Achilles’ heel” of cancer cells that survive initial chemotherapy.
Researchers published an article that represents the transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and flow cytometry study of A-549 (human lung carcinoma) cellular uptake of Pr3+:LaF3 nanoparticles.
Most of the tests that doctors use to diagnose cancer -- such as mammography, colonoscopy, and CT scans -- are based on imaging. More recently, researchers have also developed molecular diagnostics that can detect specific cancer-associated molecules that circulate in bodily fluids like blood or urine.
Nanoparticle deposition specialists, Nikalyte Ltd announced that the company has signed a partnership agreement with global life sciences group Calibre Scientific.

Nano-sized particles have been engineered in a new way to improve detection of tumors within the body and in biopsy tissue, a research team in Sweden reports.
Rice University researchers have created a "defective" catalyst that simplifies the generation of hydrogen peroxide from oxygen.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University report findings on an advanced nanomaterial-based biosensing platform that detects, within seconds, antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic.
In Brazil, researchers at São Paulo State University (UNESP) in Ilha Solteira have developed a film that can replace plastic in food packaging.
Researchers at Tel Aviv University have demonstrated that the CRISPR/Cas9 system is very effective in treating metastatic cancers.
For the first time, researchers from SMART have engineered a living plant-based sensor for the detection of arsenic in the belowground environment
Raman spectroscopy is widely used in analytical sciences to identify molecules via their structural fingerprint. In the biological context, the Raman response provides a valuable label-free specific contrast that allows distinguishing different cellular and tissue contents.
Researchers have shown that the advanced CRISPR/Cas9 system is extremely effective in curing metastatic cancers.
In the quest to image exceedingly small structures and phenomenon with higher precision, scientists have been pushing the limits of optical microscope resolution, but these advances often come with increased complication and cost.
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.
Scientists are casting a net for nanoparticles. They have now identified a new technique for producing nanoparticles from a simple, self-assembling polymer.
A team of scientists from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences and Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C., has developed a new tool that mimics how SARS-CoV-2 -- the virus that causes COVID-19 -- infects a cell, information that could potentially speed the search for treatments against the disease.
A new low-temperature multi-phase process for upgrading lignin bio-oil to hydrocarbons could help expand use of the lignin, which is now largely a waste product left over from the productions of cellulose and bioethanol from trees and other woody plants.
