Researchers at Stanford University and Intel Develop Silicon Microarray Chip Capable of Producing Clinical Pathology Laboratory Test Results in Minutes

Pathologists and clinical laboratory managers take note—this peptide chip microarray may have a role in point-of-care testing At the heart of a new point-of-care technology is a prototype silicon chip that contains up to 9,000 peptides and allows real-time analysis in just minutes. Researchers say this technology can significantly reduce the time-to-answer when compared to existing clinical laboratory testing technologies. This new prototype silicon chip is an on silico peptide microarray. It...

Corporations Take Electronic Health Records into their Own Hands

Clinical laboratories have traditionally been the primary storehouse for laboratory test data. Not only has this been a strong source of added value to clinicians, but it positions clinical laboratories to be major players in the approaching age of genetic medicine. Now there’s a new threat on the horizon. Several of the nation’s largest corporations are preparing to handle the electronic health records (EHRs) of their employees. The first news of this nascent trend was a story in The...
