Graphene Flakes to Stop Epileptic Seizures

Could graphene flakes be used to help prevent and mitigate seizures? A team of researchers have tested tiny flakes of graphene as part of neuroscience research. “During epileptic seizures, the brain’s excitatory neurons go haywire, generating extreme amounts of...

Graphene fibres to replace pharmaceuticals?

The graphene fibres are a new class of fibre materials called a “sutrode”. Half the width of a human hair, these fibres are safe, efficient and can be implanted with no risk of toxicity. “Spun graphene fibres are coming to deal with diabetes, heart disease and...

Human antibodies on graphene biosensors

Archer Exploration has printed and patterned ink formulations of human antibodies on graphene-based biosensor components derived from the company’s Campoona graphite. “One of the biggest challenges to printable biosensors involves the scalable fabrication of...

CRISPR-Chip uses graphene

A new CRISPR-Chip device with electronic transistors made from graphene can detect specific genetic mutations in a matter of minutes. This means that genetic testing could be performed in a doctor’s office or field work setting without having to send a sample off to a...
