Diagnostic Assay Developed for Unclassified Severe Combined Immune Deficiency

Severe combined immune deficiency (SCID) is a group of rare hereditary genetic disorders, and is characterized by a total absence of immune system function, including an absence of T-lymphocytes, the white blood cells that play a crucial role in the body's immune defense. More...

Fidget Spinner Rapidly Detects Urinary Tract Infections

More than half of all women experience at least one episode of urinary tract infection (UTI) in their lifetime, with men also facing increasing risks of infection as they age. Current detection of UTIs relies on patients reporting symptoms followed by a laboratory culture of the urine for known bacterial culprits, which typically takes a few days. More...

The resulting dry layer of caked salts would preserve a `time-stamped` record of biomarkers of interest (Photo courtesy of Dr. Orlin D. Velev and co-authors, North Carolina State University)

A Simple Paper-Based, Wearable Device for Long Term Sweat Analysis

By cleverly manipulating paper geometry, researchers created a paper-based wearable device to collect, transport, and analyze sweat for an extended period. More...
