MALDI-TOF-MS Evaluated for Rapid Diagnosis of Bacteremia and Fungemia

When sepsis occurs, it is essential to begin an effective and potent antibacterial or antifungal treatment as soon as possible as early administration and achievement of microbicidal concentrations are associated with better survival in community-acquired and hospital-acquired septicemia. More...

Novel Biomarker Candidate for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Explored

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease causing a rapid loss of motor function, which usually results in a serious condition with early death within a few years. So far, early and precise diagnosis of the disease has been difficult. More...

Quick Ultra-Sensitive System Identifies Multidrug-Resistant Bacteria

The worldwide emergence of multidrug‐resistant (MDR) bacteria is associated with significant morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs. Rapid and accurate diagnostic methods to detect antibiotic resistance are critical for antibiotic stewardship and infection control measurements. More...

Lab-on-a-Chip Infection Test Provides Cheaper, Faster Portable Diagnostics

Rapid screening and low-cost diagnosis play a crucial role in choosing the correct course of intervention when dealing with highly infectious pathogens. This is especially important if the disease-causing agent has no effective treatment. More...

Interstitial Fluid Sampled from Skin Using a Microneedle Patch

Biochemical information about the body most commonly comes from analysis of blood, which represents only 6% of bodily fluids, but valuable information may also be found in other bodily fluids that are traditionally hard to get. Biofluids such as saliva, blood, urine, tears, and interstitial fluid (the fluid that surrounds cells) contain proteins and can be isolated for health monitoring. More...

Nanodiamonds Dramatically Boost Immunoassay Sensitivity

Incorporation of a specific class of nanodiamond into lateral flow immunoassays was shown to increase the sensitivity of this method by at least five orders of magnitude. More...
