New research from a BYU and Chevron Phillips team could help open doors to tackle “grand challenges in catalysis chemistry.”
BYU researchers have created a miniaturized, portable version of a tool now capable of analyzing Mars’ atmosphere — and that’s just one of its myriad possible uses.
Researchers at BYU are the first to 3D-print a viable microfluidic device small enough to be effective at a scale much less than 100 micrometers.
With help from a palm-sized plastic rectangle, BYU researchers are hoping to minimize the problem of premature deliveries. The chip is designed to predict, with up to 90 percent accuracy, a woman’s risk for a future preterm birth.
