Small, Simple Chip Can Test for Antibiotic Resistance Within One Hour

Small, Simple Chip Can Test for Antibiotic Resistance Within One Hour

We live in fear of 'superbugs': infectious bacteria that don't respond to treatment by antibiotics, and can turn a routine hospital stay into a nightmare. A 2015 Health Canada report estimates that superbugs have already cost Canadians $1 billion, and are a "serious and growing issue." Each year two million people in the U.S. contract antibiotic-resistant infections, and at least 23,000 people die as a direct result. [More]
First Liquid Nano Laser Holds Promise for “Lab-on-a-Chip” Medical Diagnostics

First Liquid Nano Laser Holds Promise for “Lab-on-a-Chip” Medical Diagnostics

Scientists at Northwestern University have created the first-ever liquid nanoscale laser that can be tuned in real time to generate multiple colors easily and rapidly. This unique and convenient feature of this laser technology could pave the way for several practical applications including a new “lab on a chip” for medical purposes. [More]

DeSyRe Would Enable Less Energy and Less Chip Area for Medical Systems-on-a-Chip

DeSyRe Would Enable Less Energy and Less Chip Area for Medical Systems-on-a-Chip

Systems-on-a-chip for extremely critical applications would use 28 percent less energy and 48 percent less chip area while offering nine times lower hardware failure rate, if designed with the completely novel Desyre architecture. This would drastically reduce hospital costs and replacement rate of medical devices. [More]

A team of University of Rhode Island engineers led by Professor Mohammad Faghri has created a new paper-based platform for conducting a wide range of complex medical diagnostics. [More]
New Lab-on-a-Chip Technique for Analysis of Single Cells

New Lab-on-a-Chip Technique for Analysis of Single Cells

Scientists at EPFL have developed a new lab-on-a-chip technique to analyze single cells from entire population. The new method, which uses beads and microfluidics can change the way we study mixed populations of cells, such as those of tumors. [More]
Biologically Based "Egg-on-a-Chip"

Biologically Based "Egg-on-a-Chip"

Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) systems have registered tremendous progress over the past 20 years. Myriad "chip" schemes have already emerged, ranging from the lung-on-a-chip and heart-on-a-chip to the liver-on-a-chip and kidney-on-a-chip. [More]
