Immuno-Magnetic Agglutination Assay Detects Dengue Virus Antigen

 Dengue virus (DENV) is the most important arbovirus worldwide, causing infections in endemic countries and returning travellers from these areas. Rapid diagnostic tests are needed to improve patient management and monitor local transmission. The detection of DENV non-structural protein 1 (NS1) is a useful tool for the diagnosis. More...

Automated Enzymatic Method Quantifies Pyruvate Kinase in Erythrocytes

 A deficiency of red blood cell (RBC) pyruvate kinase (PK), inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, is the most common cause of hereditary nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia (HSHA). The hemolysis is owing to the inability of the PK-deficient RBCs to maintain adequate quantities of ATP. More...

Novel Point-of-Care Device Simultaneously Detects Bacterial Growth and Tests Antibiotic Susceptibility

 A novel paper-based point-of-care device that combines detection of pathogenic bacteria with determination of antibiotic susceptibility is expected to reduce the number of unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions and aid in the on-going struggle to prevent development of antibiotic resistance. More...
