Microfluidic Device Explores Ovarian Cancer Interactions

In many cancers, platelet interactions with circulating tumor cells and their role in metastasis have been studied extensively. In ovarian cancer, platelet extravasation into the tumor and resulting metastasis is thought to be regulated mostly by the vascular endothelium. More...

The TriVersa NanoMate LESA uses chip-based electrospray ionization technology that combines the benefits of liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry, chip-based infusion, fraction collection, and direct surface analysis into one integrated ion source platform (Photo courtesy of Advion BioSciences).

Nanoparticle System Captures Heart-Disease Biomarker From Blood

Physicians currently use an antibody-based test called enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to help diagnose heart attacks based on elevated levels of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in the patient's blood sample. While the ELISA test is sensitive, patients can have high levels of cTnI in the blood without having heart disease, which can lead to expensive and unnecessary treatments for patients. More...

Two Simple Methods Prepare DNA Suitable For Digital PCR

Although DNA of high quality can be easily prepared from cultured cells with commercially available kits, many studies involve a large number of samples which increases the cost drastically. More...

Serological Dipstick Assay Developed for Melioidosis

The Gram-negative environmental pathogen Burkholderia pseudomallei, causes the severe disease melioidosis. It is highly endemic in southeast Asia and northern Australia, but recent studies suggest that it is also present in many other parts of the world where it is severely underreported. More...

Portable Blood Ammonia Detector Developed

Ammonia is a natural product of digestion that is usually processed into urea by the liver and passed out of the body in urine. Too much ammonia in the blood can cause mental and physical dysfunction and is a concern for people with liver disease or genetic conditions that hinder ammonia metabolism. More...

Micro-Lab on a Chip Detects Blood Type Within Minutes

Blood transfusion, if performed promptly, is a potentially life-saving intervention for someone losing a lot of blood. However, blood comes in several types, some of which are incompatible with others. Transfusing an incompatible blood type can severely harm a patient. More...

Methods Compared Classifying Intensity of Soil-Transmitted Helminth Infections

Soil-transmitted helminths (Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura) and the hookworms, Necator americanus and Ancylostoma duodenale affect one quarter of the world population, and are responsible for the loss of more than three million disability-adjusted life years (DALYs). More...
