Bacteria reveal strong individuality when navigating a maze

26-Apr-2019

Researchers from ETH Zurich demonstrate that genetically identical cells exhibit differing responses in their motility towards chemical attractants. Average values hide the full picture when it comes to describing the behaviour of bacteria. Although they are considered the simplest of all life ...

Microfluidic chip for analysis of single cells

21-Aug-2018

A few little cells that are different from the rest can have a big effect. For example, individual cancer cells may be resistant to a specific chemotherapy—causing a relapse in a patient who would otherwise be cured. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, scientists have now introduced a ...

Wearable device measures cortisol in sweat

24-Jul-2018

The hormone cortisol rises and falls naturally throughout the day and can spike in response to stress, but current methods for measuring cortisol levels require waiting several days for results from a lab. By the time a person learns the results of a cortisol test - which may inform treatment for ...
