Utilizing nanofabrication techniques, researchers have been able to replicate many properties of normal animal organs on a chip. This eliminates the need to test products directly on animals. The system mimics the normal reaction that real tissue has to drug candidates.





Cornell inventors have discovered a novel methodology for the patterning of chemically sensitive biological materials on various substrates. This technology facilitates the construction of an entire class of highly sensitive biological sensors.





This hand-held, portable device enables the rapid detection of biological compounds such as nucleic acids. The device detects compounds based on the concept of hybridization. Electrochemical and optical detection can be incorporated into the device.
