The use of auxetic membranes to regenerate human tissue after injuries

A material that thickens when you pull on it seems to contradict the laws of physics. However, the so-called auxetic effect, which also occurs in nature, is interesting for a number of applications. A new Empa study recently published in “Nature Communications” shows how this amazing behavior can be improved – and even used to Read more about The use of auxetic membranes to regenerate human tissue after injuries[…]

Construction of nanotubes from protein crystals

Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) have succeeded in constructing protein nanotubes from tiny scaffolds made by cross-linking of engineered protein crystals. The achievement could accelerate the development of artificial enzymes, nano-sized carriers and delivery systems for a host of biomedical and biotechnological applications. An innovative way for assembly of proteins into well-ordered Read more about Construction of nanotubes from protein crystals[…]

A new therapeutic material based on nanofibers

A group of NUST MISIS’s young scientists, for the very first time in Russia, has presented a new therapeutic material based on nanofibers made of polycaprolactone modified with a thin-film antibacterial composition and plasma components of human blood. Biodegradable bandages made from these fibers will accelerate the growth of tissue cells twice as quickly, contributing to the normal regeneration of damaged tissues, as well as preventing the formation of scars Read more about A new therapeutic material based on nanofibers[…]

Advanced materials for additive manufacturing

Specific Challenge: Additive manufacturing (AM) is now applied in the processing of most industrial metals, ceramics, polymers and composites, albeit at quite different levels of industrial readiness. The challenge is to develop equipment that allows the additive layer manufacturing of multi-materials items and multi-functional materials (for research, transport including aeronautic, consumer customised goods, communications, biomaterials Read more about Advanced materials for additive manufacturing[…]

Paptic’s wood-based material can replace plastic in many applications

Finnish startup company Paptic Ltd is planning a paper machine investment to upscale the production of its patented PAPTIC material to industrial scale. The demand for PAPTIC material on the market allows for the company’s quick transition to industrial-scale production. Currently Paptic is negotiating the financing of the investment with a number of actors. The Read more about Paptic’s wood-based material can replace plastic in many applications[…]

3D bioprinting organs could save lives

In the past decade, engineers at the University of California San Diego have 3D printed a variety of devices ranging from rocket engines, to robots, to structures inspired by the seahorse’s tail. Now, nanoengineers have added a new item to that list: a 3D printed biomimetic blood vessel network. The new research, led by nanoengineering Read more about 3D bioprinting organs could save lives[…]

New Biomedical 3-D Textile Engineering Technology

Secant Medical has developed a new 3-D textile engineering technology by integrating traditional textile engineering with advanced biomaterials. While 3-D printing or additive manufacturing has gained considerable attention as a novel method to create 3-D biomedical forms, 3-D printing does not always offer the dimensional stability, material selection and engineering properties desired. The 3-D textile Read more about New Biomedical 3-D Textile Engineering Technology[…]

Bio-inspired fabrication of high-performing multifunctional materials

Tufts University engineers have created a new format of solids made from silk protein that can be preprogrammed with biological, chemical, or optical functions, such as mechanical components that change color with strain, deliver drugs, or respond to light, according to a paper published online this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Read more about Bio-inspired fabrication of high-performing multifunctional materials[…]

High-performing Henkel materials enable even complex 3D printing applications

3D Printing is a fast growing technology leveraged by designers across nearly all industries to help enable new designs and accelerate time to market. 3D printed parts are used for prototyping to validate fit and function. In some cases, the 3D printed assembly itself is part of the final assembled good, which is typically referred Read more about High-performing Henkel materials enable even complex 3D printing applications[…]
