Rapid, low-cost, point of care flu detection from microfluidic chip

Researchers at Boston University have validated a prototype rapid, low-cost, accurate, point-of-care microfluidic device that promises a better standard of care.

Diving into the world of the very small

An ERC funded project has built microscopic moving parts on to the ends of optical fibres, leading to better instruments for observing and measuring at the nanoscale.

Virtual microscope lens delivers a real revolution in imaging

The University of Sheffield has produced the world's first lens-less microscope. With no technical limit to image accuracy or resolution, the technology is cheaper to produce than standard microscopes and is even able to `see through´ solid state devices such as microchips.

Summer School on Micro Mechanical Systems Design and Manufacturing


For the 6th consecutive year, DTU is organizing the PhD Summer School on "Micro Mechanical Systems Design and Manufacturing".

IMPRESS Newsletter

The IMPRESS project has just published a Newsletter giving its mid-term results.

New work on areal surface topography at NPL

NPL has recently completed a project to allow industry to benefit from the use of areal surface topography measurement to enhance a range of high-value products. The surface topography of a component part can have a profound effect on the function of the part. In tribology, it is the surface that influences such quantities as friction, wear and the lifetime of a component.
