New Biosensing Platform Could Quickly and Accurately Diagnose HIV and Monitor Treatment Remotely

    Thin, lightweight and flexible materials developed by researchers at Florida Atlantic University, Stanford University and Harvard University, integrate cellulose paper and flexible polyester films as new diagnostic tools to detect bioagents in whole blood
    Thin, lightweight and flexible materials developed by researchers at Florida Atlantic University, Stanford University and Harvard University, integrate cellulose paper and flexible polyester films as new diagnostic tools to detect bioagents in whole blood, serum and peritoneal fluid.
    Researchers have employed three different paper and flexible material-based platforms incorporated with electrical and optical sensing modalities. Using this same technology, they have developed a phone app that can use a drop of blood to detect bacteria
    Researchers have employed three different paper and flexible material-based platforms incorporated with electrical and optical sensing modalities. Using this same technology, they have developed a phone app that can use a drop of blood to detect bacteria and disease in the blood using images from a cell phone, which could easily be analyzed from anywhere in the world.
