Nanotechnology Makes Portable HIV Monitoring Possible

Nanotech correspondent Alex Fiorentino reveals how a new device made in Marlborough, MA is using nanotechnology to bring HIV monitoring out of the hospital and into remote regions in need of treatment. The device, called the PointCare NOW machine, labels blood cells with gold nanoparticles instead of traditional fluorescent tags. As a result, it can assess the severity of HIV quickly and portably, and without the need for expert technicians.
