Engineering team invents lab-on-a-chip for fast, inexpensive blood tests

KINGSTON, R.I. -- January 10, 2011 -- While most blood tests require shipping a vial of blood to a laboratory for analysis and waiting several days for the results, a new device invented by a team of engineers and students at the University of R...

Purdue, NIST working on breathalyzers for medical diagnostics

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Researchers have overcome a fundamental obstacle in developing breath-analysis technology to rapidly diagnose patients by detecting chemical compounds called "biomarkers" in a person's respiration in real time. The re...

Researcher develops accurate method for detecting dangerous fluoride

Used in the proper amounts, it can make teeth stronger and aid in the treatment of osteoporosis. When excessive amounts are consumed, however, it can be a killer -- a carcinogen that causes bone, lung and bladder cancers. The "it" is fluorid...

Pitt-led team develops nanoscale light sensor compatible with ‘Etch-a-Sketch’ nanoelectronic platform

PITTSBURGH -- University of Pittsburgh researchers have created a nanoscale light sensor that can be combined with near-atomic-size electronic circuitry to produce hybrid optic and electronic devices with new functionality. The team, which also invo...
