KUGH develop new micro liquid analysis technology using wave energy

Researchers developed a technique using wave energy to reduce virus detection time by half for malaria, dengue fever, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), and other infectious diseases. Minimizing hospital detection time from one hour to 25 minutes may help make a diagnosis in time to treat patients properly.

Scaling up preparedness for high-threat pathogen outbreaks in Kyrgyzstan

Epidemiologists, veterinarians, and laboratory technicians from across Kyrgyzstan participated in a five-day specialized training to deepen their knowledge on existing diagnostic methods and procedures to prevent outbreaks caused by high-threat pathogens – such as anthrax, cholera, rabies, and brucellosis.

Research Team Creates Bacterial Sensor Modeled After the Immune System

Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) researchers designed a Universal Bacterial Sensor—modeled after the human innate immune system—that mimics the biological recognition of all categories of bacterial pathogens. Requiring less than a drop of blood, it detects all pathogens without prior knowledge of what they might be, before symptom onset.
