Tania Konry Develops ScanDrop for Detecting Variety of Biological Specimens

Tania Konry Develops ScanDrop for Detecting Variety of Biological Specimens

Northeastern University professor of pharmaceutical sciences, Tania Konry, has developed a single instrument that can conduct a wide range of biological scans in a fraction of the time and cost of industry standard equipment. That's because it uses considerably less material and ultra-sensitive detection methods to do the same thing. [More]
