Japanese researchers have created a novel device that enables individuals who are monitoring their salt intake to enjoy umami dishes that are typically high in sodium, such as ramen and miso soup, using electrically-stim...
Researchers based at the University of California, Santa Cruz, have now developed a framework to help guide scientists in assessing the habitability of other worlds on exoplanets.
The US Department of Defense is investigating the possibility of deploying wearable sensors to monitor the exposure of service personnel to dangerous toxins, thereby superseding current static detection systems.
A paper-based sensor for identifying even small volumes of hydrogen peroxide is developed by a research team from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc). From healthcare and household products like hand sanitizer as a disinfectant to rocket fuel as a propellant, this chemical is used in a wide range of applications, and it is also found in biological cells.
Today, the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University and Australian biotech company The iQ Group Global Ltd. announced that the Institute's electrochemical eRapid technology has been licensed to Antisoma Therapeutics Pty. Ltd., a subsidiary of The iQ Group Global.
Researchers at the University of Bath working in collaboration with industrial partner, Integrated Graphene, have developed a new sensing technique based on graphene foam for the detection of glucose levels in the blood. Since it is a chemical sensor instead of being enzyme-based, the new technology is robust, has a long shelf-life and can be tuned to detect lower glucose concentrations than current systems.
Artificial nitrogen fertilizers tremendously altered agriculture during the Green Revolution, propelling crop yields and food security to great heights.
A research team from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) has built a new near-infrared sensor that is easy to manufacture, comparable in size to sensors in smartphones, and ready for deployment in agriculture and industrial process monitoring.
FreshAir, an industry leader in the development of sensors to detect and alert for hazardous chemicals, announces its unique and highly effective FreshAir1 Smoking Detection System.
A new smart sensing technology, which is illustrated in the journal Nature Food, could help farmers work out the best time to use fertilizer on their crops and how much is required, after taking into consideration factors such as soil condition and weather.
