Heavy metals

  • Sweat based non-invasive point of health diagnosis technology

    New Delhi: Our body fluid such as sweat contains biologically relevant markers such as ions, heavy metals, metabolites, and proteins and some of them are diffused from the bloodstream which can reflect health status at a chemical level. Therefore, sweat represents a relevant bio-fluid for continuous non-invasive monitoring of physiological health status or in clinical conditions. Indian researchers have developed…

  • New method for efficient removal of heavy metals from water

    New Delhi : Heavy metals in water could lead to several neurological diseases in humans including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. A research team at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Mandi has developed a fibrous membrane filter using a biopolymer-based material that helps to separate out the heavy metals from water samples. These membranes contain adsorbents – materials that…
