Scientists Reveal Potency and Evasiveness of Coronavirus

Scientists Reveal Potency and Evasiveness of Coronavirus
May 11, 2020

SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is extremely infectious. Curiously, in lots of sufferers, it triggers poor immune responses, which prolongs sickness. This helps the virus spread broadly, exacerbating the worldwide pandemic. In a new examine featured in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers at the University of Minnesota recognized the biochemical mechanism that will clarify how the virus infects people while evading their immune responses. This study,…

Researchers Using Bluetooth-enabled Devices to Detect Fermentation Process

Researchers Using Bluetooth-enabled Devices to Detect Fermentation Process
May 6, 2020

Electrochemical reactions that occur in processes like ethanolic fermentation embrace the transformation of sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Similar processes happen when the human body breaks down meals, medicine, or other compounds. Monitoring these metabolic processes helps in testing, studying, and combating illness; however, due to the small portions of liquids involved, they’re troublesome to review with regular equipment. Miniaturizing gadgets with environmental sensing capabilities offers promise for better testing of fermentation…

HKUST Engineers Develop Antiviral Coating to Protect Surfaces from Coronavirus like Viruses

HKUST Engineers Develop Antiviral Coating to Protect Surfaces from Coronavirus like Viruses
April 27, 2020

Researchers at a Hong Kong university say they’ve developed an antiviral coating which could provide 90 days of important safety against bacteria and viruses such as the one causing COVID-19. The coating, referred to as MAP-1, took ten years to develop and will be sprayed on surfaces that are continuously utilized by the public, such as elevator buttons and handrails, researchers at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) say. The coating…

Scientists Reveals Details of Universal Self Assembly

Scientists Reveals Details of Universal Self Assembly
April 21, 2020

For years, researchers have looked for the working ideas of self-assembly that may construct a cell a complex organic organism in addition to a crystal a far less complicated inorganic material in the same way. Now, a crew of scientists in Turkey has demonstrated the fundamental rules of a universal self-assembly course acting on a range of supplies—starting from a number of atoms-large quantum dots as much as almost 100 trillion atoms-large human…

Researchers Makes Fluorescence Microscopy More Efficient Using Novel 3D Imaging Expertise

Researchers Makes Fluorescence Microscopy More Efficient Using Novel 3D Imaging Expertise
April 15, 2020

Scientists have been utilizing fluorescence microscopy to study the inner workings of biological cells and organisms for many years. Nevertheless, many of these platforms are sometimes too slow to follow the organic action in 3-D; and too damaging to the living organic specimens with strong light illumination. To deal with these challenges, a research group guided by Dr. Kevin Tsia, Affiliate Professor of the Department of Electrical and Digital Engineering…

Duke University Disinfects N95 Masks Using Vaporized Hydro-Peroxide

Duke University Disinfects N95 Masks Using Vaporized Hydro-Peroxide
March 27, 2020

With the scarcity of N95 face masks persisting nationwide, healthcare facilities are scrambling to find methods to clean and disinfect the masks for reuse to protect doctors and nurses most at risk of exposure to COVID-19. Duke University thinks it has discovered a solution utilizing vaporized hydrogen peroxide to decontaminate the masks. The process makes use of specialized gear to vaporize hydrogen peroxide, which can then infuse all of the layers…

Research Suggests Growth in Energy Consumption does not Lead to Longer Lives

Researchers Suggests Growth in Energy Consumption does not Lead to Longer Lives
March 26, 2020

Growing consumption of power and fossil fuels over four decades didn’t play a significant role in increasing life expectancy across 70 nations. New research, commissioned by the University of Leeds, has quantified the importance of various growth factors to improvements in physical health on a global scale. Because a nation’s vitality use is extremely correlated with life expectancy at any single time limit, it has generally been assumed that progress in energy…
