    sensitive biosensor capable of identifying the smallest single virus particles in solution, which could advance early disease detection at the point-of-care and cut waiting for test results from weeks to minutes.

  2. FIBER-OPTIC MICROSCOPY: Bent on disease detection : Fiber optics makes miniature microscopy more flexible

    Magazine Articles

    Mon, 23 Mar 2015

    Fiber-optic microscopy is promising for very early cancer detection, surgical guidance, and as a complement to standard pathology.

  3. DISEASE DETECTION /ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING: Novel design makes mid-IR fiber laser super-sensitive for breath analysis

    Magazine Articles

    Tue, 18 Mar 2014

    A fiber laser able to produce 25 times more light than other lasers operating at a similar wavelength has proven able to detect very low concentrations of gases.

  4. CYTOMETRY/DISEASE DETECTION : Future cytometry: Going with—or without—the flow

    Magazine Articles

    Tue, 18 Mar 2014

    Recent advances in optics and electronics could make cytometric technology highly affordable and broadly applicable within the next few years, filling new niches and challenging the traditional dominance of flow cytometry in some older ones.

  5. PRIMARY CARE SCREENING/OCT/DISEASE DETECTION : Handheld OCT device promises screening for retinal disease in primary care

    Magazine Articles

    Tue, 21 Jan 2014

    A new optical coherence tomography (OCT) device about the size of a handheld video camera could enable primary care physicians to detect retinal diseases -- including diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and macular degeneration -- in their early stages to improve treatment outcomes

  6. DISEASE DETECTION /NANOTECHNOLOGY: Optical fiber-based sensor IDs smallest virus particles

    Magazine Articles

    Sat, 1 Sep 2012

    A biosensor able to identify the smallest single virus particles (each just 6 attograms) hopes to revolutionize early disease diagnosis by providing results within minutes at the point of care.

  7. EARLY DISEASE DETECTION /FLUORESCENCE: Nanotechnology enables dramatic improvement of medical tests

    Magazine Articles

    Sun, 1 Jul 2012

    biomarkers need to be present compared to a conventional immunoassay. The development opens new opportunities for early disease detection and treatment—and perhaps equally important, it requires no changes for researchers and technicians: The new procedure

  8. NANOTECHNOLOGY/DISEASE DETECTION : Light-scattering nanoparticles enable fast, accurate flu diagnosis - at low cost

    Magazine Articles

    Thu, 1 Sep 2011

    Fast or accurate? Those are typically your choices for flu diagnosis. But a new biophotonics approach offers both speed and accuracy, and low cost as well—all things that are supremely helpful during outbreaks, especially because antiviral drugs are most effective in the early stages of disease.
