Researchers Develop Experimental Rapid COVID-19 Test Using Innovative Nanoparticle Technique
University of Maryland Medical Center

Scientists from the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) developed an experimental diagnostic test for COVID-19 that can visually detect the presence of the virus in 10 minutes. It uses a simple assay containing plasmonic gold nanoparticles to detect a color change when the virus is present. The test does not require the use of any advanced laboratory techniques, such as those commonly used to amplify DNA, for analysis. The authors published their work last week in the American Chemical Society’s nanotechnology journal ACS Nano.

Raise your glass: new nanotech clears haze from white wine
University of South Australia

Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, or Chardonnay – when you reach for your favourite white, it’s the clean, clear sparkle that first catches your eye. Or does it? When white wines look cloudy it’s a sign of protein instability, and a sure-fire way to turn customers away. Now, new research is ensuring white wines will always look their best as novel magnetic nanotechnology is proving to quickly and efficiently remove haze-forming proteins in white wine.

New Route to Thin Porous Membranes
Department of Energy, Office of Science

Scientists have discovered a new method of producing ultra-thin porous membranes. The key is growth of a polymer “corona”—an ultrathin layer of polymer surrounding highly porous metal-organic-framework (MOF) nanoparticles. The nanoparticles self-assemble into layers one particle thick and into multilayer, self-supporting porous films.
