This device can reduce the analysis and decision-making process from 1 - 2 months to less than 3 days. Right Pix: Close-up of the microfluidics cell sorting device.
The research entitled ‘Multivariate biophysical markers predictive of mesenchymal
stromal cell multipotency’ will be published in the prestigious scientific journal
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences this week.
A new way to diagnose malaria
SMART-BioSyM team has now come up with a possible alternative. The researchers have devised a way to use magnetic resonance relaxometry (MRR), a close cousin of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to detect a parasitic waste product in the blood of infected patients. The paper describing the technique in the Aug. 31 issue of Nature Medicine.
