Quick Ultra-Sensitive System Identifies Multidrug-Resistant Bacteria

The worldwide emergence of multidrug‐resistant (MDR) bacteria is associated with significant morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs. Rapid and accurate diagnostic methods to detect antibiotic resistance are critical for antibiotic stewardship and infection control measurements. More...

Elevated Soluble C5b9 Biomarker Found in SARS-Cov-2 Infected Children

Most children with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infections have mild or minimal disease, with a small proportion developing severe disease or multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C). More...

MALDI-TOF MS Employed for Early Diagnosis of Bloodstream Infections

Bloodstream infections (BSIs) are a major cause of mortality in hospitalized patients. Rapid diagnosis is crucial because any delay in the antimicrobial treatment is associated with an increase in adverse patient outcomes. More...

Flow Cytometry Employed in Diagnosing Male Urethritis

According to the established guidelines, diagnosis of non-gonococcal urethritis should be confirmed by demonstrating polymorphonuclear leukocytes from the anterior urethra using a Gram-stained (GSS) or methylene blue-stained urethral smear. More...

Lab-on-a-Chip Infection Test Provides Cheaper, Faster Portable Diagnostics

Rapid screening and low-cost diagnosis play a crucial role in choosing the correct course of intervention when dealing with highly infectious pathogens. This is especially important if the disease-causing agent has no effective treatment. More...

Deep Learning Digital Microscope Scanner Detects Malaria

Malaria remains a major global health problem with a need for improved field-usable diagnostic tests. Light microscopy assessment of blood smears to detect Plasmodium parasites remains the diagnostic gold standard and allows detection and quantification of Plasmodium species while also being more sensitive than rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs). More...

Specific Gut Bacterium Linked to Irritable Bowel Syndrome

The incidence of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) steeply increases following a gastroenteritis episode, suggesting a possible causative role for microbial perturbation. Gut microbiota composition studies overwhelmingly rely on fecal material. More...
