little as one cent per chip the new technology could usher in a medical diagnostics revolution (Source: Stanford University) Related News Scientists have developed a low-cost reusable “lab on a chip” – using an ordinary inkjet printer -that can detect lethal diseases like cancer and could potentially enhance diagnostic capabilities around the world especially in developing countries At a production cost of as little as one cent per chip the new technology could usher in a medical diagnostics revolution like the kind brought on by low-cost genome sequencing said Ron Davis professor at the Stanford University in the US Watch all our videos from Express Technology Inexpensive sequencing technology allows clinicians to sequence tumour DNA to identify specific mutations and recommend personalised treatment plansIn the same way the lab on a chip has the potential to diagnose cancer early by detecting tumour cells that circulate in the bloodstream Due to inferior access to diagnostics the survival rate of breast cancer patients is only 40 per cent in low-income nations-half the rate of such patients in developed nations Other lethal diseases such as malaria tuberculosis and HIV also have high incidence and bad patient outcomes in developing countries Better access to cheap diagnostics could help turn this around researchers said “Enabling early detection of diseases is one of the greatest opportunities we have for developing effective treatments” said Rahim Esfandyarpour research associate at Stanford A combination of microfluidics electronics and inkjet printing technology the lab on a chip is a two-part system The first is a clear silicone microfluidic chamber for housing cells and a reusable electronic strip The second part is a regular inkjet printer that can be used to print the electronic strip onto a flexible sheet of polyester using commercially available conductive nanoparticle ink Also Read: Lab-on-a-chip technology may simplify cancer detection “We designed it to eliminate the need for clean-room facilities and trained personnel to fabricate such a device” said Esfandyarpour One chip can be produced in about 20 minutes he said Designed as a multi-functional platform one of its applications is that it allows users to analyse different cell types without using fluorescent or magnetic labels that are typically required to track cells Instead the chip separates cells based on their intrinsic electrical properties When an electric potential is applied across the inkjet-printed strip cells loaded into the microfluidic chamber get pulled in different directions This label-free method to analyse cells greatly improves precision and cuts lengthy labelling processes The tool is designed to handle small-volume samples for a variety of assays The researchers showed the device can help capture single cells from a mix isolate rare cells and count cells based on cell types The study was published in the journal PNAS For all the

Indian tech users and it is a fair chance that you will see them roll their eyes For notwithstanding all the importance bestowed to Apple’s artificial assistant there is a perception that Siri struggles with Indian accents and terms Which is the reason why many people believe that the assistant is not used widely in India notwithstanding there being a larger number of iPhone and iPad users in the country than ever before However we have been told that a lot of work has gone into Siri in the years since her launch making her more aware of accents and her whereabouts She was very adept at handing out IPL updates this year and well Diwali the Indian Festival of Lights brought out the best in her We wished Siri a Happy Diwali and the assistant came up with a number of different responses These varied from the relatively routine “Happy Diwali to you too” to a Mr Spock like “Eat Sweets and Prosper” to a very Indian “Happy Diwali Nimish Save me a laddu” The interesting part was that in all these responses Siri was attempting to be conversational rather than informative which makes her all so…human even if an artificial one We tried the same with Google Assistant (which is seen on Android devices) and Cortana (seen on Windows and Android) and it was a classic case of information trumping conversation Both assistants at least on this day seemed to have more limited options Cortana did reply to our greeting politely initially (although surprisingly with none of the wit that she shows in other Indian queries) and even threw in a few images but she also once showed us

Urmia University in Iran also found that men exercising moderately and continuously improved their sperm quality more than those following popular intensive exercise programmes like high intensity interval training (HIIT) Watch What Else Is Making News One in three couples struggle to conceive due to poor semen quality The only treatment available for couples unable to conceive naturally is In vitro fertilisation (IVF) but using poor quality sperm may increase the risk of miscarriage birth defects and the development of childhood cancer researchers said Current advice for men seeking to improve their chances of conceiving include combining healthy eating with regular exercise while giving up smoking and reducing the intake of alcohol However the link between exercise and sperm quality is not definitely proven Researchers investigated 261 healthy men aged between 25 and 40 years old Men who followed a regular exercise programme or did more than 25 minutes of exercise more than three days per week were excluded from participating They assigned each participant to one of four groups: moderate intensity continuous training (MICT) high intensity continuous training (HICT) HIIT or a control group that did no exercise MICT and HICT exercises consisted of running on a treadmill for half an hour and one hour for 3-4 days per week respectively HIIT consisted of short one-minute bursts of sprinting on a treadmill followed by a one minute recovery period repeating between ten to fifteen times These routines were followed during a 24-week period The researchers found that men in all exercise groups had improved sperm quality across all measures when compared to the samples from the control group After completing the 24-week programme the MICT exercise group showed the biggest improvements in sperm quality and also maintained these benefits for longer Compared to the control group those following MICT had: 83 per cent more semen volume 124 per cent higher sperm motility 171 per cent improved sperm cell shape/morphology 141 per cent more concentrated sperm and 218 per cent more sperm cells on average “Our results show that doing exercise can be a simple cheap and effective strategy for improving sperm quality in sedentary men” said Behzad Hajizadeh Maleki lead author of the study Researchers noted that while losing weight in general is likely to have contributed to improving sperm quality MICT may have had the most profound impact on sperm quality because it reduces the gonad’s exposure to inflammatory agents and oxidative stress The study was
