Researchers from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology have developed a method to study biofilm formation, and how it is affected by drugs, with high efficacy.
In this interview, we speak to Tracey Goldstein, Co-Principal Investigator and Pathogen Diagnostics Co-Lead for the viral emergence early-warning project PREDICT, who gives us an overview of the project, what brought it about and some of the findings thus far.
A new assay has been developed for the faster, cheaper and less labour-intensive detection of replicating latent HIV in infected individuals.
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.
How can we ensure products remain pathogen free? In this editorial, the authors discuss the most common causes of food-borne illnesses, methods by which contamination is traditionally detected and what current research has to offer, specifically in the field of nanoscience.
