Portable Microscope Could Speed Sepsis Detection

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A portable microscope, developed as part of a scalable, point-of-care, label-free microarray platform, may offer more rapid detection of sepsis and other infections caused by bacteria, ultimately saving millions of lives each year. The device combines photonics technology, microfluidics and molecular biology to produce sample-to-result processing up to 50 times faster than current testing techniques, which can take as long as 24 hours to achieve similar results.
