Scientists and engineers collaborated to develop a fully integrated, miniaturized semiconductor biochip with closed-tube detection chemistry to perform multiplexed nucleic acid amplification tests.
Diagnostic method exploits magnetic properties of parasite byproduct to detect all strains in low-resource environments.
Researchers designed a rapid assay for detection of Ebola virus using recombinase polymerase amplification.
New technique enables SHERLOCK to detect a virus directly in bodily fluids, eliminating a step that required lab equipment and expanding the platform’s potential to quickly and cheaply track pathogens anywhere in the world.
Researchers have created a shoebox-sized laboratory that can do blood testing in remote, low-resource settings, determining from a drop of blood whether a person has antibodies to specific infectious diseases.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will permit marketing for a new use of the BRUKER MALDI Biotyper CA system for the identification of C. auris.
Researchers have developed a microbial detection technique so sensitive that it allows them to detect as few as 50-100 bacterial cells present on a surface.
Researchers combined microfluidic techniques with beam-pen lithography and photochemical surface reactions to devise a new biochip printing technique.
Even in places with the highest rates of malaria, only about half of fevers are due to malaria, while in many places that figure is 10 percent or less.
Researchers describe the construction and characterization of a safer alternative to regulated B. anthracis: a genetically inactivated (rather than irradiation-inactivated) avirulent B. anthracis strain.
