At just 24 weeks of gestation, Tucker Roussin underwent fetal surgery at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to treat a life-threatening tumor connected to his heart. Now, he is a healthy 3-year-old preschooler, the hospital reported today. Intrapericardial teratoma is a rare, rapidly growing tumor that can be detected while the child is in utero. […]
Researchers from Harvard University developed what they tout as the 1st entirely 3D-printed organ-on-a-chip with integrated sensing. The heart-on-a-chip was quickly manufactured by a fully automated, digital procedure and allows researchers to collect data for short-term and long-term studies. The team, who published their work in Nature Materials, hope that one day this approach may allow researchers to […]
Researchers from the University of Cambridge have developed a new form of transistor that drastically reduces the amount of power used by a device, according to a new study published in Science. Devices that make use of this ultralow power transistor could function for months, maybe years, without batteries, according to the team. The transistor […]
Each component in a design impacts its future direction. Make sure your choices are the best to achieve your desired objective. In today’s high-speed and lightweight applications plastic components succeed where metal formerly served. Cam Followers using plastic, high-load capacity composite rollers are a maintenance-free, clean and quiet running alternative to traditional metal designs. Established […]
