    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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
