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...

Interstitial Fluid Sampled from Skin Using a Microneedle Patch

Biochemical information about the body most commonly comes from analysis of blood, which represents only 6% of bodily fluids, but valuable information may also be found in other bodily fluids that are traditionally hard to get. Biofluids such as saliva, blood, urine, tears, and interstitial fluid (the fluid that surrounds cells) contain proteins and can be isolated for health monitoring. More...

Nanodiamonds Dramatically Boost Immunoassay Sensitivity

Incorporation of a specific class of nanodiamond into lateral flow immunoassays was shown to increase the sensitivity of this method by at least five orders of magnitude. More...

Fast Antibacterial Susceptibility Testing by Measuring Electron Transfer Metabolism

A recently developed device facilitates bacterial antibiotics susceptibility testing by measuring the effect of these drugs on bacterial electron transfer metabolism. More...

Breath Ammonia Biomarker Predicts Kidney Function in CKD Patients

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a type of kidney disease in which there is gradual loss of kidney function over a period of months to years. Initially there are generally no symptoms; later, symptoms may include leg swelling, feeling tired, vomiting, loss of appetite, and confusion. More...

Paper Diagnostic Directly Measures Fibrinogen in Whole Blood

Fibrinogen is a protein found in blood that is needed for clotting. When a patient experiences traumatic injury, such as a serious car accident, or major surgery and childbirth complications, fibrinogen is required in their blood to prevent major hemorrhaging and death from blood loss. More...

Fecal Immunochemical Test Assessed in Suspected Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer (CRC), also known as bowel cancer, colon cancer, or rectal cancer, is the development of cancer from the colon or rectum (parts of the large intestine). Signs and symptoms may include blood in the stool, a change in bowel movements, weight loss, and fatigue. More...
