Photo: drop of blood on a finger [18/11/2015] A new RNA test of blood platelets can be used to detect, classify and pinpoint the location of cancer by analysing a sample equivalent to one drop of blood. Using this new method for blood-based RNA tests of blood platelets, researchers have been able to identify cancer with 96 per cent accuracy.Blood sample new way of detecting cancer - Read more

Heidi Dohse: From hospital bed back to racing bike with wearables

Sometimes, your situation seems hopeless and you just have to deal with it. Or so it seems at least. What can one do who chooses swimming instead of sinking? One example is Google-Manager Heidi Dohse who resorts to wearables to lead an active life as an athlete despite arrhythmia and pacemakers. She will talk about this at MEDICA MEDICINE+SPORTS CONFERENCE 2015.Heidi Dohse: From hospital bed back to racing bike with wearables - Read more

Interview: Bee Robotics Ltd.

Photo: micropipet for analyzing stem cells [10/11/2015] While there are no cures for neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, many researchers believe that one could be found in neural stem cells. Unfortunately, scientists do not yet have a full understanding of how these cells behave and differentiate, which has put a roadblock in the path to potential life-saving treatments.Using microfluidic devices to sort stem cells - Read more
