UC Davis Researchers Develop Microscope That Uses Ultraviolet Light for Diagnosis, Eliminates Need for Traditional Histology Slide Preparation

MUSE microscope speeds up some anatomic pathology laboratory processes and removes exposure to toxic fixative chemicals Because they handle tissue specimens, histotechnologists, anatomic pathologists, and hospital nurses are exposed to deadly chemicals such as formaldehyde, formalin, Xylene, and Toluene. The risks associated with these chemicals has been covered regularly by Dark Daily as recently as 2018 and as far back as 2011. (See, “Europe Implements New Anatomic Pathology Guidelines to...

Oxford Nanopore Technologies Raises $180 Million to Expand Development of Its Revolutionary Hand-held DNA Sequencer; Might Medical Labs Get a POCT Solution?

Popularity of the pocket-sized gene-sequencing device continues to prove that DNA testing away from clinical laboratories in remote clinics and outlying field laboratories is not just possible, but in some cases preferable Once again, Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT) is demonstrating how next-generation gene sequencing technology can make it cheaper, simpler, and faster to sequence without the need for big clinical laboratories. And its successful raising of $180 million to expand...

Canadian Company Prepares to Use Biometric Facial Recognition for Positive Patient Identification with an In-Home Prescription Drug Dispensing Device

Could biometrics increase security and safety of clinical laboratory patient identification and specimen tracking processes as well? Positive patient identification is a common problem for all healthcare providers, including medical laboratories. That is why there is strong interest in developing technologies that use biometric data to identify patients. The challenge has been to find a biometric solution that has acceptable accuracy and can make the positive identification in a speedy...

Aalto University Researchers Develop Plasmonic Biosensor That Can Distinguish Differences in Exosomes, Giving Clinical Laboratories New Tool for Spotting Disease in Human Blood with Naked Eye

Analysis performed by this new biosensor could help identify inflammatory bowel diseases, cancer, and other chronic diseases, and contribute to influencing the best treatment options, a critical aspect of personalized medicine Anatomic pathologists and clinical laboratories have long known that disease, as the saying goes, “is written in the blood.” How to spot the disease has been the challenge. Now, researchers at Finland’s Aalto University have developed a cutting-edge plasmonic biosensor...
