Description In a few years, fish-like products based on proteins from mushrooms and peas can be on the menu at sushi restaurants. In the project, Legendary Vish students from the EU-led research project Training4CRM and DTU have developed a 3D technique for printing fish. The first products are expected to be m

Description Difficult tracheal intubation is the third most common respiratory-related adverse co-morbid episode and can lead to death or brain damage. Since difficult tracheal intubation is less frequent, trainees have fewer opportunities to perform difficult tracheal intubation; this leads to the need to practice with a hyper-realistic intubation simulator. However, conventional simulators are expensive, relatively stiffer than the human airway, and have a lack of diversity in terms of disease variations and anatomic reproducibility. Therefore, we proposed the development of a patient-specific and hyper-realistic difficult tracheal intubation simulator using three-dimensional printing technology and silicone moulding and to test the feasibility of patient-specific and hyper-realistic difficult intubation simulation using 3D phantom for the trainee. This difficult tracheal intubation phantom can provide a realistic simulation experience of managing various difficult tracheal intubation cases to trainees, which could minimise unexpected tissue damage before anaesthesia. To achieve a more realistic simulation, a patient-specific phantom was fabricated to mimic human tissue with realistic mouth opening and accurate difficult airway shape. This has great potential for the medical education and training field.

Description Magnetic digital microfluidics (MDM) manipulates fluids in the form of droplets on an open substrate, and incorporates surface energy traps (SETs) to facilitate the droplet manipulation. Conventional MDM devices are fabricated monolithically, which makes it difficult to modify the device configuration without completely overhauling the original design. In this paper, we present a modular MDM architecture that enables rapid on-demand configuration and re-configuration of MDM platforms for customized bioanalyses. Each modular component contains a SET and a Lego-like antistud that fits onto a base board with Lego-like studs. We illustrate the versatility of the modular MDM architecture in biomarker sensing, pathogen identification, antibiotic resistance determination, and biochemical quantification by demonstrating immunoassays, phenotypical assays and enzymatic assays on various modular MDM platforms configured on demand to accomplish the fluidic operations required by assorted bioanalytical assays. The modular MDM architecture promises great potential for point-of-care diagnostics by offering on-demand customization of testing platforms for various categories of diagnostic assays. It also provides a new avenue for microfluidic assay development with its high configurability which would significantly reduce the time and cost of the development cycle. A Lego-inspired, modular magnetic digital microfluidic architecture enables customizable bioanalysis. Magnetic digital microfluidics controls droplets on a surface via magnetic particles, with the liquid droplets themselves acting as mini bioreactors for analysis. Such devices often include surface energy traps to aide droplet manipulation. However, because they are fabricated as monolithic systems, they cannot be altered for different bioanalysis post-fabrication. Here, a team led by Yi Zhang from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, reports a modular design for magnetic digital microfluidic devices, in which functional modules are configured and reconfigured via Lego-like studs. This modular design allows users to build testing platform on demand for a wide range of bioanalyses.
