Autonomous Robot for Removing Superficial Traumatic Blood
Objective: To remove blood from an incision and find the incision spot is a key task during surgery, or else over discharge of blood will endanger a patient’s life. However, the repetitive manual blood removal involves plenty of workload contributing... Read more

Pathologic blood samples tolerate exposure to vibration and high turbulence in simulated drone flights, but plasma samples should be centrifuged after flight.
Abstract: Most of the previous studies of drone transport of blood samples examined normal blood samples transported under tranquil air conditions. We studied the effects of 1- and 2-hour drone flights using random vibration and turbulence simulation (10-30 g-force) on... Read more

Centrifugal Filter Device for Detection of Rare Cells With Immuno-Binding
Many investigations have shown circulating tumor cells (CTCs) to serve as a significant biomarker of cancer progression and for cancer treatment. Multiple blood samples detection of CTCs during a course of treatment might facilitate a choice by a medical doctor... Read more

Bio-inspired Nanonetworks for Targeted Cancer Drug Delivery
Biomimicry has been a great source of inspiration for many successful engineering solutions to date. Here, we propose to imitate several natural processes, some of which already occur within the human body, to construct bionanonetworks for targeted cancer drug delivery.... Read more

An Acoustic Communication Technique of Nanorobot Swarms for Nanomedicine Applications
In this contribution, we present a communication paradigm among nanodevices, based on acoustic vibrations for medical applications. We consider a swarm of nanorobots able to communicate in a distributed and decentralized fashion, propelled in a biological environment (i.e., the human... Read more
