Microanalysis of Biological Samples for Early Disease Detection

A schematic drawing of solution measurement by using fabricated terahertz microfluidic chip. The chip consists of a local THz radiation point source, a single microchannel and a few arrays of split ring resonators. The THz waves are generated by irradiating laser beam from the backside of the crystal and efficiently interact with the solution flowing inside the microchannel. The optical microscope image of fabricated microfluidic chip is also shown. Credit: Osaka University

Algorithm Predicts Life Expectancy After Heart Attack

News

A new algorithm developed by UCLA researchers more accurately predicts which people will survive heart failure, and for how long, whether or not they receive a heart transplant. The algorithm would allow doctors to make more personalized assessments of people who are awaiting heart transplants, which in turn could enable health care providers to make better use of limited life-saving resources and potentially reduce health care costs.

Plug-and-Play Diagnostic Devices Developed

News

Researchers at MIT’s Little Devices Lab have developed a set of modular blocks that can be put together in different ways to produce diagnostic devices. These “plug-and-play” devices, which require little expertise to assemble, can test blood glucose levels in diabetic patients or detect viral infection, among other functions.
