Process prototypes paper biochips

Expose specially treated sheets of paper to ultraviolet light and heat and you can quickly and cheaply make prototype biochips. [more]

Plastic transistors get wet

Cook up organic transistors from the right plastic and you have chemical and biological sensors that can survive watery environments. [more]
