Synthetic Phages Attack Broader Range of Bacterial Strains

ETH researchers are using synthetic biology to reprogram bacterial viruses — commonly known as bacteriophages — to expand their natural host range. This technology paves the way for the therapeutic use of standardized, synthetic bacteriophages to treat bacterial infections, the scientists claim. read...

3D-Printed Micro Swimmers Could Deliver Drugs in the Future

Bacteria and other swimming microorganisms evolved to thrive in challenging environments, and researchers struggle to mimic their unique abilities for biomedical technologies. Microscopic, 3D-printed, tori — donuts — coated with nickel and platinum may bridge the gap between biological and synthetic swimmers, according to an international team of researchers. read...

Scientists Observe Spooky Quantum Tunneling of Ammonia

Researchers at the MIT and the Seoul National University explored quantum tunneling, a phenomenon often used in undergraduate chemistry courses to demonstrate one of the “spookinesses” of quantum mechanics. Their experimental approach is unique, and it has enormous ramifications for future efforts to interrogate molecular structure and dynamics, with the present application affording fundamental insights into the nature of tunneling-mediated phenomena. read...

Conserve Precious Samples with a New Micro-Analytical Balance

Expensive, rare or toxic substances must be used sparingly. To conserve them, laboratory staff needs to be able to weigh-out very small samples with a high degree of accuracy. The design of the new XPR Micro-Analytical balance simplifies sample handling and helps ensure right-first-time results, even at low minimum weights. read...
