Research activity in evidence

  • Cooperative effects between electromagnetic fields and environmental pollutants or model molecules
    In the bioelectromagnetic research, the synergistic interaction between both low and high frequency electromagnetic fields, with other chemical and physical agents, is an aspect still scantly investigated, but which can provide useful information for both human safety and biomedical applications. The small entity electromagnetic field effects may intensify the effects…
  • Integrated optical and optofluidic sensors
    The optofluidic sensors are a recent innovation in sensoristics. They combine the unique characteristics of liquids to those of microfluidics leading to innovative devices. In this field, for instance, there are sensors based on liquid jet waveguides, recently developed by IREA researchers. Moreover, optofluidic sensors provide easy integration to electronic…

Application in evidence

  • Evaluation of cytotoxicity of nanoparticles
    Using nanoparticles offers great potentiality and perspectives in novel diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Despite the rapid progress and initial acceptance of nanobiotechnology, adverse effects on human health due to exposure to various concentrations of nanoscale materials have not yet been established. Materials in the nanometer range can exhibit physico-chemical characteristics…
  • Understanding the interaction mechanisms between electromagnetic fields and biological systems
    Despite the intensification of the in vivo and in vitro experiments on the evaluation of long-term effects of electromagnetic fields has generated in recent decades, a vast scientific literature, the scientific debate is still open on the possible interaction mechanisms specific for low field levels responsible for specific biological effects.…
