Microfluidic Device with Fluorescent Sensor Detects Ebola

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A faculty-researcher at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) has developed a prototype microdevice with biosensors that can detect the Ebola virus. The microfluidic device is an automated chip with a highly sensitive fluorescence sensing unit embedded in it. The device uses CRISPR gene-editing technology to detect the nucleic acid markers that indicate Ebola. Patient samples are added into the device, and Ebola RNA is seen by activating the CRISPR mechanism. In test environments, the Ebola RNA could be detected within five minutes by combining automated sample processing,...Read full article
