A*STAR researchers have found a metric by which to measure the environmental impacts of NEWater and tap water production in Singapore.
A*STAR scientists have developed strategies to manipulate surface tension in fluids and modify the surface properties of materials. Their findings could increase the yield of crude oil from oil wells and lead to super water- or oil-repellent surfaces.
Customizing the size, shape and orientation of 3D-printed lattices can make structures stronger while requiring less material.
If cell-based therapies are to make it to the clinic, methods to grow stem cells in vast quantities will need to be developed. Here’s how A*STAR scientists are tackling the challenge of manufacturing stem cells at scale.
Using an expanded genetic alphabet containing fluorescent artificial DNA bases, scientists can now visually detect and quantify DNA molecules for use in diagnostics.
