Whole Animal Assays Use Lab-On-A-Chip at MIT

MIT researchers expand genetic screening with new diagnostic technologies Make way for what is being called “whole animal assays.” This new approach utilizes a lab on a chip to allow researchers to perform whole animal screening at sub-cellular resolutions in what is described as a “high throughput” manner. The new diagnostic technology was developed at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) MIT researchers developed this unique whole animal assay testing chip using the nematode...

Novel Instrument Uses Molecular and Nanotechnology to Treat Sepsis

New diagnostic and treatment approach will require close interaction with Pathologists There’s a novel diagnostic device designed to detect sepsis that also has to potential to engage the pathologist as part of the bedside care team. It is also an example of how nanotechnology and magnetism are being combined in ways that may support in vivo diagnosis and treatment. Created by a research scientist at Children’s Hospital Boston,  this new device uses magnetism to quickly pull...
