Home Urine Collection for More Accurate Prostate Cancer Detection

 A standardized sampling system enables men being tested for prostate cancer to collect a urine sample at home and mail it to a laboratory for analysis. More...

Multivariate label-free data, composed of both morphological and spectral parameters, are used to identify high-level features at the single-cell level such as cellular type, response to drugs, as well as response differences between specimens (Photo courtesy of Osaka University)

Non-Invasive Microscopy Detects Activation and Distinguishes Cell Types

 Measurement techniques that allow the global analysis of cellular responses while retaining single-cell sensitivity are increasingly needed in order to understand complex and dynamic biological processes. More...

Optimized Microscope Hardware Developed for Accurate Image Classification

 Despite the widespread automation enabled by new post-processing software, the physical layout of the standard microscope has still changed relatively little as it is, for the most part, still optimized for a human viewer to peer through and inspect what is placed beneath. More...

Acute Myeloid Leukemia Diagnosed by Convolutional Neural Networks

 Every day, millions of single blood cells are evaluated for disease diagnostics in medical laboratories and clinics. Most of this repetitive task is still done manually by trained cytologists who inspect cells in stained blood smears and classify them into roughly 15 different categories. More...

Chemical Analysis of Blood Samples Diagnoses Brain Tumors

 Brain tumors tend to have ambiguous symptoms, such as headache or memory problems, and a brain scan is currently the only reliable way of diagnosing them. In recent years, the use of infrared (IR) spectroscopy to analyze disease state in biofluids has been largely employed with promising results. More...
