Nanochip could heal injuries or regrow organs with one touch by a device that instantly delivers new DNA or RNA into living skin cells to change their function.
What’s a nano chip?
A nanochip is an electronic integrated circuit so small that it can only be measured in the
nanometer scale. The nanochip scale has been the goal of modern technology. With nanochips it would be possible to have computers the size of micro SD cards but thousands of times more powerful because so many more components could fit in a very small space.
Date: 8 – 12 June 2015Venue: Centre for MEMS & Micro-Fluidics
While finding engineers and machinists with micro-manufacturing skills, there is definitely a skill gap in micro-manufacturing throughout the world. It is a global issue. Research work in the field of MEMS and Microfluidics also get delayed due to the lack of manpower with the knowledge and skills in the area of Micro-manufacturing. Since the investment cost for micro-machining processes and maintenance cost of clean room facilities are very expensive, only very few Institutions like IITs have the full-pledged facilities for micro-machining technology. We have also developed very important micro fabrication facilities at this centre under various sponsored projects. Participating in this internship will surely be a very good opportunity.
The biological and medical fields have seen great advances in biomolecules. This review is meant to provide an overview of the various types of biosensors and biochips that have been developed for biological and medical applications, along with significant advances over the last several years in these technologies. It also attempts to describe various classification schemes that can be used for categorizing the different biosensors and provide relevant examples of these classification schemes from recent literature.
Above mentioned departments have faculties interested in Biomedical Research areas

A pioneering mobile device using cutting-edge nanotechnology to rapidly detect malaria infection and drug resistance could revolutionise how the disease is diagnosed and treated.
Around 800,000 people die from malaria each year after being bitten by mosquitoes infected with malaria parasites. Signs that the parasite is developing resistance to the most powerful anti-malarial drugs in south-east Asia and sub-Saharan Africa mean scientists are working to prevent the drugs becoming ineffective.
This article is written by S. Vidhya. She is pursuing her PhD in Biomedical Devices and Technology from IIT Madras, CMC Vellore and SCTIMST Trivandrum. She specializes in the field of nanotechnology. There will be a series of articles coming from her side. This is just a beginning of new story with Biomedikal.in
