Ebola Test with Portable Reader Authorized for Emergency Use

Ebola is a rare but deadly virus that causes fever, body aches, and diarrhea, and sometimes bleeding inside and outside the body. As the virus spreads through the body, it damages the immune system and organs. Ultimately, it causes levels of blood-clotting cells to drop. This leads to severe, uncontrollable bleeding and kills up to 90% of people infected. More...

Microsatellite Instability Assay Validated for Cancer Studies

Microsatellite instability (MSI) occurs when mismatch repair proteins (MMR) fail to fix a DNA replication error, leading to frame-shift mutations in a person's genetic code and non-functioning proteins. MSI has acted as a strong marker for genetic conditions such as Lynch syndrome that can lead to a variety of cancers. More...
