Bacterial Soundtracks Revealed by Graphene Membrane

Bacterial Soundtracks Revealed by Graphene Membrane

Have you ever wondered if bacteria make distinctive sounds? If we could listen to bacteria, we would be able to know whether they are alive or not. When bacteria are killed using an antibiotic, those sounds would stop - unless of course the bacteria are resistant to the antibiotic. This is exactly what a team of researchers have managed to do: they captured low-level noise of a single bacterium using graphene.

Bio-FETs for Point-of-Care Diagnostics

Bio-FETs for Point-of-Care Diagnostics

Bio-FETs are biosensor transducers that utilize transistors for biological applications, such as rapid medical diagnostic tests. They have emerged as a label-free technology to rival incumbent, labelled transduction methods. In this premium article, IDTechEx explores the players developing bio-FET technologies, discusses the use of graphene and carbon nanotubes as semiconductor materials in bio-FETs, and identifies the advantages and constraints to bio-FETs in rapid diagnostics.

Finally, the First Mass Market Adoption of a Nanocarbon

Finally, the First Mass Market Adoption of a Nanocarbon

The revolutionary promise of nanocarbons has been touted for more than 3 decades, but despite the extraordinary properties and commercial hype, the success has been limited - until now. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) may not be as glamorous as their younger sibling graphene, but IDTechEx forecast the annual demand to exceed 70 ktpa by 2032 as for the first time the manufacturers experience a mass-market pull rather than a material push.

An International Standard for Measuring the Flatness of Graphene

An International Standard for Measuring the Flatness of Graphene

Graphene is often portrayed as the ultimate conductor, thanks to its flexibility and to its excellent conductivity. However, research has shown that the electrical and the structural quality of graphene are intimately connected, and that nanoscale lattice deformations caused by surface corrugations limit the mobility of electrons in graphene.

Graphene Sensor Rapidly Detects Opioid Metabolites in Wastewater

Graphene Sensor Rapidly Detects Opioid Metabolites in Wastewater

The unique properties of the atom-thick sheet of carbon, known as graphene, enabled a new penny-sized, multiplexed bio-sensor that's the first to detect opioid byproducts in wastewater. The novel device is the first to use graphene-based field effect transistors to detect four different synthetic and natural opioids at once, while shielding them from wastewater's harsh elements.

New Glucose Sensor Using Graphene Foam is Cheaper, More Robust

New Glucose Sensor Using Graphene Foam is Cheaper, More Robust

Researchers have developed a new sensing technique based on graphene foam for the detection of glucose levels in the blood. Since it is a chemical sensor instead of being enzyme-based, the new technology is robust, has a long shelf-life and can be tuned to detect lower glucose concentrations than current systems.
