Research Team at University of California Santa Barbara Achieves In Vivo Monitoring of Therapeutic Drugs with Technology That Pathologists Could Adapt for Clinical Diagnostic Purposes

Published study involved a demonstration of the MEDIC device’s ability to measure therapeutic drugs in animals, as well as human whole blood Researchers at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) are making rapid progress in designing a biosensor that can measure therapeutic levels of a prescription drug in real time within the patient. This technology has interesting implications for anatomic pathology and clinical laboratory testing. The research team has developed a small...

New Pathology Testing Device Enables Oncologists to Diagnose Cancer in One Hour at the Bedside with 96% Accuracy

Smartphone-based lab testing device could eliminate need to send biopsies to pathology laboratories For years, pathologists have wondered when technology would make it feasible to diagnose cancer at the patient’s beside. Eliminating the need for a traditional biopsy that goes off to the anatomic pathology laboratory, and requires 24 hours or more to process the tissue and evaluate the case. Now scientists at Harvard Medical School may be close to perfecting a device that can allow oncologists...
