A team of researchers at Georgia State University has developed a novel approach for detecting the activity of calcium within cells.
New variants to the COVID-19 virus have challenged the capacity of existing testing methods to deliver fast and consistently accurate test results, as PCR tests must be sent to labs and can take days to be returned.
A new technique has been presented by researchers from the Universities of Dresden and Leipzig for hormonally detecting active substances present in water, cosmetics, and food.
The measurement of the electrical activity of neurons tends to be useful in several fields; however, it is considered to be difficult to create a durable neural interfacing brain chip implant with negligible adverse effects.
A group of biotechnologists and engineers from the University of Freiburg demonstrated for the first time that it is possible to determine the concentration of antibiotics in the body of mammals using breath samples.
A newly developed, low-cost sensor can detect and accurately measure the amount of the widely used and controversial herbicide, glyphosate, in droplets of liquid in a laboratory test.
Researchers have developed the first-ever nanosensor to facilitate the rapid testing of synthetic auxin plant hormones. The novel nanosensors are safer and less difficult than the available approaches for testing a plant’s response to compounds like herbicide.
Biochemical methods for diagnosis are one of the most accurate ways nowadays. In the case of biochemical diagnostics of cardiovascular diseases, medical professionals assess the level of cardiac markers in blood—unique proteins hidden in the cells of a cardiac muscle.
The Korean team of researchers successfully developed a proprietary biosensor technology with significantly enhanced molecular sensitivity using the artificial lipid membrane that mimics cellular membrane.
Scientists have adapted the genetic modification technology CRISPR to identify antibodies in blood samples from patients in an attempt to encourage new grades of medical diagnostics along with a series of other applications.
