The innovation is that the glass plates forming the base of each microchip are coated with an array of nanoparticle-sized islands of gold, which intensify the fluorescent signal, enabling reliable antibody detection (Photo courtesy of Prof. Brian Feldman, Stanford University, and Nature Medicine).

Microchip Invented for Faster, Simpler Type-1 Diabetes Diagnosis, Risk Assessment, and Biomarker Discovery

Researchers have succeeded in developing a low-cost, portable, nanotech microchip-based test for diagnosing type-1 diabetes that would speed diagnosis and screening, and enable new approaches to studying how the disease develops. More...
