UCF Researchers Develop an Optical Sensor That Identifies Viruses in Blood Samples in Seconds with 95% Accuracy

New nanotechnology device is significantly faster than typical rapid detection clinical laboratory tests and can be manufactured to identify not just COVID-19 at point of care, but other viruses as well Researchers at the University of Central Florida (UCF) announced the development of an optical sensor that uses nanotechnology to identify viruses in blood samples in seconds with an impressive 95% accuracy. This breakthrough underscores the value of continued research into technologies that...

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...
