Microbiome metabolites have been discovered to enhance colon injury in human EHEC infections in a human–mouse comparative study, accounting for species-specific differences in infection tolerance.
Researchers have developed a microfluidic device that can assess the deformability of red blood cells and consequently haemolytic anemia. In future it could be used to monitor the disease progression of malaria.
An integrated versatile lab-on-a-chip platform for the isolation and nucleic acid-based detection of pathogens
Processing of the samples in molecular diagnostics is complex and labor-intensive. Here, the authors present a prototype of a versatile and integrated platform for the detection of pathogens in various liquid media.
