Portable Ebola Test Brings Quicker Diagnosis to Remote Regions


Researchers have created a portable and fast-acting test that can distinguish Ebola infections from other fever-causing infectious diseases such as Lassa fever and malaria in around 30 minutes. Although further testing is required, this could be useful during febrile disease outbreaks.


Peeling Off Pesky Biofilms


Researchers have found a way to cleanly and completely peel off notoriously problematic biofilm sludges.


Precise Engineering of Graphene Could Benefit Lab-on-a-chip Applications


A team of NYU researchers has solved a longstanding puzzle of how to build ultra-sensitive, ultra-small electrochemical sensors with homogenous and predictable properties by discovering how to engineer graphene structure on an atomic level.
