Scientists have developed a cheap, rapid and portable diagnostic test to analyse sputum samples for Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) from suspected TB patients.
US researchers have developed a miniaturised plasmonic spectrometer that creates a rainbow pattern that shifts in the presence of a chemical or biological sample.
Researchers have invented a new type of chip, combining the precision of microfluidic chips with the efficiency of membrane filtration, to find CTC clusters.
Researchers develop a microfluidic chip for diagnosing diseases that uses a minimal number of components and can be powered wirelessly by a smartphone.
Thanks to an all-in-one process, the device removed the need for labour-intensive sample pretreatment and chemical tagging techniques.
Researchers have developed human-on-a-chip technology, using human tissues in a device, which mimics human physiology.
The Australian National Fabrication Facility has partnered with NASA in a project to develop sensors for monitoring the health of astronauts through testing bodily fluids such as sweat and saliva.
Using a combination of microfluidics and electrical sensors, the chip was able to detect differences in the electrical properties of white blood cells taken from healthy and diabetic patients.
Scientists have found a way to combine the separate steps required for drug development, hence facilitating and accelerating the search for promising new substances.
Given the flaws of animal research models and traditional in vitro experimentation, organ-on-chip studies are being hailed as the key to faster, more accurate drug development and precision medicine.
Organ-on-chip specialist CN Bio has signed a distribution agreement with Sydney-based AXT, with its products now available throughout Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific region.
Researchers have developed an ultrasensitive diagnostic device that could allow doctors to detect cancer quickly from a droplet of blood or plasma.
Dr Warwick Nesbitt is on a mission to bring blood analysis out of the pathology lab.
MIT researchers are replacing the humble pipette with lab-on-a-chip technology that uses electric fields to move droplets of biological solutions around a surface.
European researchers have set up a lab-on-a-chip, hardly bigger than a matchbox in size, which enables them to study gene regulation in single bacterial cells.
