German Researchers Develop DNA Origami That Traps and Neutralizes Certain Viruses

This “Virus Trap” might eventually be manufactured by clinical laboratories for the diagnostic process Clinical laboratory managers and pathologists will be fascinated by this new treatment coming out of Germany for viral infections. It’s an entirely different technology approach to locating and neutralizing live viruses that may eventually be able to control anti-viral-resistant strains of specific viruses as well. As virologists and microbiologists are aware, even in our present era of...

Harvard Researchers’ New DNA Barcoding May Give Pathologists Expanded Capabilities in Fluorescence Microscopy

New biomedical imaging technology could enhance pathologists’ ability to examine tissue samples via fluorescence microscopy Scientists at Harvard University’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering have developed a new DNA, barcoding technique. The fluorescence microscopy approach has significant implications for the imaging community. Beyond imaging, however, pathologists will be able to use this same technology when evaluating tissue specimens. The new method could enable...
