3D Imaging of Cancer Cells Could Lead to Improved Ability of Pathologists and Radiologists to Plan Cancer Treatments and Monitor Cell Interactions

New technology from researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center enables the ability to study cancer cells in their native microenvironments Imaging research is one step closer to giving clinicians a way to do high-resolution scans of malignant cells in order to diagnose cancer and help identify useful therapies. If this technology were to prove successful in clinical studies, it might change how anatomic pathologists and radiologists diagnose and treat cancer....

Researchers at Auburn University Collaborate with Clinical Laboratory Team at Keesler Air Force Base to Detect Antibiotic-resistant Bacteria in Just 10 Minutes

This technology could provide medical labs a quick, cost-effective way to diagnose methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus Even as in vitro diagnostics manufacturers are bringing rapid molecular tests to market that can identify infectious diseases within hours, a research collaboration involving a major university and a medical laboratory at an air force base has demonstrated the ability to identify antibiotic-resistant strains of Staphylococcus in just minutes. This innovative research...

Two Different Point-of-Care Test Devices for Malaria Show Why Emerging Technologies Can Be Disruptive to Clinical Pathology Laboratories

Separate research projects at University of Washington and in the United Kingdom are producing handheld diagnostic devices to accurately detect Malaria Two new handheld, point-of-care test (POC) devices for malaria  could save millions of lives in third-world countries. At the same time, these POC devices may lead to inexpensive alternatives for diagnosing common diseases in developed nations as well. Clinical laboratory test developers see a big opportunity in developing assays to detect...
