• Promising ‘Internet Of The Body’ Approach To Diagnosing Parkinson’s Disease

    Jun 08 | Diagnostics World | A technique for isolating urinary extracellular vesicles (EVs) released by cells across the body has enabled the discovery of previously undetectable biomarkers for Parkinson’s disease (PD) in the protein cargo of the nanoparticles. EVtrap—short for extracellular vesicles total recovery and purification—is now the foundation of Purdue University spinoff Tymora Analytical Operations. More
  • Nature-Inspired Orthopedic Implant Coating Kills Bacteria, Monitors Strain

    Jun 06 | Diagnostics World | Researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign believe they have come up with an attractive approach to the battle against bacteria that can infect orthopedic implants—as well as the surfaces people encounter in everyday life, including smartphone screens and kitchen countertops. The smart surgical implant coating contains no chemicals but was instead inspired by the wings of cicadas and dragonflies that are naturally antibacterial through physical interactions. More
  • ‘Artificial Pathologist’ Offers Speedy Evaluation Of Biopsy Samples

    Jun 01 | Diagnostics World | Using a special tissue grinder, label-free cytometry, and machine learning, researchers in Germany have come up with a way to evaluate potentially cancerous tissue without a trained human pathologist in only 30 minutes—fast enough to be done during surgery. More

  • New Antimicrobial Susceptibility Test Suggests Generic Z-Pak Can Cure Superbugs

    May 18 | Diagnostics World | A new antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) method developed by scientists at the University of California, Santa Barbara, resolves the longstanding conflict between what the gold-standard assay says will work and actual patient outcomes when it comes to selecting antibiotics. The alternative AST protocol reveals that antibiotics already widely available on the market can cure superbugs. More
  • Blinded, Randomized Clinical Trial Suggests AI ‘Near-Ready For Prime Time’

    May 16 | Diagnostics World News | In a first-of-its-kind, blinded and randomized clinical trial of artificial intelligence (AI) in cardiology, investigators at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center have shown that an “AI assistant” for assessing heart health works even better than sonographers at reading echocardiograms. The software was integrated with the institution’s picture archiving and communication system that securely stores and digitally transmits electronic images. More
  • Novel Wound Dressing Monitors For Infection In Real Time

    May 10 | Diagnostics World | Researchers in Sweden who previously introduced a hydrogel wound dressing constructed of nanocellulose that requires no changing have further improved on their innovation with the integration of a pH sensor to passively monitor for early signs of infection. In parallel, they’re working on antimicrobial substances based on lipopeptides that are showing potency against multiple types of bacteria. More
  • Researchers Build Pediatric Cancer Atlas, Envision Universal Diagnostic Potential

    May 09 | Diagnostics World | Whereas some detection and diagnosis tools search for mutations in certain genes or analyze the genome, an international group of researchers spanning Canada, the UK, and Australia has created an atlas of pediatric cancer using a machine-learning algorithm that considers the whole transcriptome. More
  • Accelerating Implementation: Unlocking the Potential of Next-Generation Sequencing

    May 05 | Diagnostics World News | Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has revolutionized molecular biology and served as a universal tool for many research avenues across the spectrum of biology. With the NGS market expanding, three key barriers—time, cost, and expertise—are holding back the potential of NGS and the full impact it could have on society, diagnostics, and precision medicine.
