Fast, cheap test can detect COVID-19 virus’ genome without need for PCR

Researchers at the University of Washington have developed a new test for COVID-19 that combines the speed of over-the-counter antigen tests with the accuracy of PCR tests that are processed…

New sensor grids record human brain signals in record-breaking resolution

High-resolution recordings of electrical signals from the surface of the brain could improve surgeons’ ability to remove brain tumors and treat epilepsy, and could open up new possibilities for medium-…

Automating blood smears for easier malaria diagnosis

Device removes one of the biggest bottlenecks preventing quick, reliable malaria diagnosis. One of the key steps in diagnosing or treating many bloodborne diseases is to perform a blood smear,…

Brain volume and memory impairment

… conventional vs ultrafast 3D MRI sequences. Automated brain volumetry in memory-impaired patients shows significant differences and systematic biases between conventional and ultrafast 3D T1-weighted MRI sequences. According to an…

Fitness sensor warns when you’re at your limits

Ultrathin nanomaterials, known as MXenes, are poised to make it easier to monitor a person’s well-being by analyzing their perspiration. While they share a similar two-dimensional nature to graphene, MXenes…

Lipid droplets as endogenous intracellular microlenses

With the demand in real-time monitoring of endoplasmic variations and rapid detection of extracellular signals, a great number of approaches to bioimaging have been developed. The past few decades have…

A breakthrough in microneedle patches

Rethinking how drugs are administered: Scientists develop promising fabrication process for microneedle arrays capable of administering protein-based drugs subcutaneously without damaging the skin. The painful feeling of receiving an injection…

‘Pop-up’ electronic sensors could detect when individual heart cells misbehave

Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a powerful new tool that monitors the electrical activity inside heart cells, using tiny “pop-up” sensors that poke into cells…

MRI scans for early detection of Alzheimer’s disease

At Fraunhofer MEVIS, a new device update accelerates development of control software. Reliable and feasible early detection of Alzheimer’s disease is the goal of DEBBIE, an international joint project under…

Invisible virus protection for indoor spaces

Room divider based on UV-C light inactivates SARS-CoV-2 aerosols. Despite myriad precautionary measures, virus-contaminated aerosols still pose a serious problem indoors. An invisible protective wall of UV-C light developed by…
