NO more shortage of renal organs for transplant

Just like the invention of test tube baby, the invention of the laboratory grown kidney can be an outstanding breakthrough in biological science.  The experiment proved to be a success with rats.  This cleared the path for the making of human kidneys.  This challenging job of lab grown kidney can potentially help those who are waiting for a matching kidney from a donor.  The testing has already been done on a few of the patients which proved to be a success.  The leader of the team Harald Ott said, “If this technology can be scaled to human-size grafts, patients suffering from renal failure, who are currently waiting for donor kidneys, could theoretically receive an organ grown on demand”.  He also claimed that with a sample of patient cells a kidney can be grafted successfully, thereby decreasing the shortage of donor organs.

The organs are developed or re-grown in the lab with the help of collagen which has no trouble of acceptance in the human body.  The flesh is grown by framing a coat of new cells in the internal surface.  The team hopes to work on developing the other internal organs using this technique.  It has already been tested successfully on pigs.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…

How to Automatically Convert any RSS Feed to an iPhone Web app!

For iPhone users this is another web app which converts any well formed XML RSS feed to an iPhone version. It is possible because it is worked with the typical sliding style interface to suit the iPhone optimized version. For instance if you had the iPhone right now here is the Google News Feed

Jim Liddle, one of the creators of the service, told iPhone Atlas “You can book mark the generated site and use it to host your own content and reference it from your own. It seems that these feed on your iPhone is quiet usable.
