Microfluidic Device Helps to Detect Myeloma Cells

April 4, 2017

Engineers at MIT have devised a microfluidic technique to capture and count circulating plasma cells from small samples of blood. The technique, which relies on conventional blood draws, may provide patients with a less painful test for [more...]

Portable Microscope Could Speed Sepsis Detection

September 5, 2016

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 [more...]

One-Step Tumor Detection on a Chip
