Researchers have designed a non-invasive and inexpensive chip-based optical biosensor with increased sensitivity to detect the presence and progression of cancerous tumors. The cancer protein biomarker S100A4 was detected at concentrations of 300 picomolar in a synthetic urine sample.
Scientists from the University of California San Diego (CA, USA) and the University of Alcalá (Madrid, Spain) have reported a pacifier biosensor that could pave the way for future research towards noninvasive saliva biomarker monitoring.
A novel artificial intelligence and biosensor device has been developed to monitor if live cancer cells remain after chemotherapy treatment.
Researchers from the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK) have developed a new biomarker test that could diagnose sepsis in under 3 minutes.
Researchers fromat the University of British Columbia Okanagan (Kelowna, Canada) have developed a tool, using biosensors, to provide almost instant diagnosis of bacterial infections.
Researchers have developed a new nanoplasmonic biosensor device that precisely detects the presence of anticoagulants in blood samples.
Find out more about a novel biosensor for the real time oxygen monitoring for organ-on-a-chip systems, and a liquid biopsy for predicting lymphoma therapy success.
