  • Self-Testing: ‘With Crisis Comes Opportunity’

    Jul 21 | Diagnostics World News | The COVID-19 pandemic is ushering in an era of self-testing that has been at least a decade in the making. Despite the evidence, it took a public health crisis to finally convince most clinicians that the benefits of self-swabbing with an at-home test kit outweigh any of the potential problems. Before long, multiple studies emerged showing patients did just as well as clinicians with rapid self-testing whether observed or unobserved. More
  • Nanopore-Based DNA Computing Detects Cancer at Subfemtomolar Concentrations

    Jul 20 | Diagnostics World News | Bile duct cancer is a complex and rapidly progressing disease often deemed terminal at the time of diagnosis. However, a research team at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology discovered nanopore-based DNA computing technology as a means of early cancer detection and improved patient outcomes.
