[News] Microfluidic chip can detect HIV and MRSA - By MedicalPhysicsWeb


A digital illustration of the design of the SIMPLE chip

"A team of biophysicists and bioengineers in the US have developed a $10, self-powered microfluidic chip that can rapidly detect disease-related RNA or DNA in blood samples. The chip is faster and significantly cheaper than current lab-based detection methods. The researchers say that it could be particularly useful in low-income parts of the world and could open the door to affordable preventative healthcare for everyone." Credit to MedicalPhysicsWeb
