Colored Nanoparticles Distinguish Between Yellow Fever Virus, Ebola and Dengue in Paper-Based Test

Colored Nanoparticles Distinguish Between Yellow Fever Virus, Ebola and Dengue in Paper-Based Test

When a fever strikes in a developing area, the immediate concern may be: Is it the common flu or something much worse that requires quarantine? To facilitate diagnosis in remote, low-resource settings, researchers have developed a paper-based device that changes color, depending on whether the patient has Ebola, yellow fever or dengue. The test takes minutes and does not need electricity to work. [More]
