Smartphone-Based Technique Helps Doctors Assess Hematological Disorders

As one of the most common clinical laboratory tests, blood hemoglobin tests are routinely ordered as an initial screening of reduced red blood cell production to examine the general health status before other specific examinations. More...

Silver Nanocubes Make Point-of-Care Diagnostics Easier to Read

Plasmonics is a scientific field that traps energy in a feedback loop called a plasmon onto the surface of silver nanocubes. When fluorescent molecules are sandwiched between one of these nanocubes and a metal surface, the interaction between their electromagnetic fields causes the molecules to emit light much more vigorously. More...

An Analytical Method to Monitor Dietary Fat Intake

An advanced analytical technique was used to determine unequivocally the composition of fats in the diets of pregnant women and female patients suspected of being deficient in certain dietary fats. More...

High-Throughput T Cell Profiling Technique Developed

T cells recognize foreign or aberrant antigens presented by major histocompatibility complex (MHC-I) expressing cells through the T cell receptor (TCR) and is the first critical step towards establishment of protective immunity against viruses and tumors. More...

CRISPR-Based Microarray System Enables Massive Testing for Viral Pathogens

A novel microfluidic nucleic acid-based diagnostic system is capable of detecting a specific virus from a catalog of more than 160 human pathogens, including the COVID-19 coronavirus, simultaneously in more than 1,000 samples. More...

Giemsa Stain Outperforms Urease Test for Helicobacter Pylori Diagnosis

More than 50% of the worldwide population is infected by Helicobacter pylori which is harbored in their upper gastrointestinal tract. Despite having chronic gastritis, most people infected by H. pylori are asymptomatic and have no specific clinical signs and symptoms. More...

Ultra-Fast Cycling for Multiplexed Cellular Fluorescence Imaging

In the treatment of tumors, microenvironment plays an important role. It often contains immune cells that are so changed that they promote tumor growth. Until now, analyses of these dynamic changes with conventional biopsies and tissue sections could take days to weeks, or not occur at all prior to treatment. More...
