The quantum sensing abilities of nanodiamonds can be used to improve the sensitivity of paper-based diagnostic tests, potentially allowing for earlier detection of diseases such as HIV.
Scientists have developed a next generation wound dressing that can detect infection and improve healing in burns, skin grafts and chronic wounds.
Researchers have built a low-cost multiplex test that can rapidly provide three different types of data on COVID-19.
AI is playing a key role in the Covid-19 response, but it could also be exacerbating inequalities within our health systems – a critical concern that is dragging the technology’s limitations back into the spotlight.
Researchers have developed a wearable solution that allows a patient to receive treatment of antibiotic-resistant infections and woundswithout leaving home.
A new robotic system allows medical staff to remotely operate ventilators and other bedside machines from outside intensive care rooms of patients suffering from infectious diseases.
Plasma-coated bandages could revolutionise the treatment of chronic wounds such as pressure, diabetic or vascular ulcers that won't heal on their own.
Scientists have developed an experimental diagnostic test for COVID-19 that can visually detect the presence of the virus in 10 minutes.
Scientists are launching a project to apply machine learning methods to assess the role of climate variables in disease transmission
A robot is helping maximize the life of some of the most critical personal protective equipment, or PPE, at a time when the surge of demand for such items has aggravated a national shortage.
An innovative measurement method is helping to detect people infected with coronavirus from a safe distance. It detects fever, increased pulse rates and fast breathing without endangering the person conducting the testing.
In order for a COVID-19 vaccine and antiviral drugs to be developed, scientists first need to understand why this virus spreads so easily and quickly, and why it invades our bodies with seemingly little resistance from our immune system.
