Voice-activated system for hands-free, safer DNA handling

Technology protects researchers from dangerous samples

03-Feb-2023

Smart voice assistants are a popular way for people to get quick answers or play their favorite music. That same technology could make the laboratory safer for scientists and technicians who handle potentially infectious samples. Researchers in ACS Sensors now report a small, voice-activated ...

How a CRISPR protein might yield new tests for many viruses

18-Jan-2023

In a first for the genetic toolset known as CRISPR, a recently discovered protein has been found to act as a kind of multipurpose self-destruct system for bacteria, capable of degrading single-stranded RNA, single-stranded DNA and double-stranded DNA. With its abilities to target so many types of ...

Simple nasal swab can provide early warning of emerging viruses

A test for a single immune system molecule on nasal swabs can help detect stealthy viruses not identified in standard tests

12-Jan-2023

As the COVID-19 pandemic showed, potentially dangerous new viruses can begin to spread in the population well before the global public health surveillance system can detect them. However, Yale researchers have found that testing for the presence of a single immune system molecule on nasal swabs ...

How old is your brain, really?

AI-powered analysis accurately reflects risk of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease based on brain age

11-Jan-2023

The human brain holds many clues about a person’s long-term health — in fact, research shows that a person’s brain age is a more useful and accurate predictor of health risks and future disease than their birthdate. Now, a new artificial intelligence (AI) model that analyzes magnetic resonance ...

Texas A&M research aims to improve Lyme disease diagnostics

Scientists are testing Raman spectroscopy as a diagnostic tool for Lyme disease

10-Jan-2023

Research by two Texas A&M University scientists is focused on improving Lyme disease treatment outcomes by developing a test that’s both more accurate and more efficient than the current test for the infection. Lyme disease, the fastest growing vector-borne illness in the U.S., according to the ...

Molecules have an orientation, and scientists have a new way to measure it

Molecular orientation is key to designing better materials

12-Dec-2022

In some materials, the molecules line up in a regular, repeating pattern. In others, they all point in random directions. But in many advanced materials used in medicine, computer chip manufacturing and other industries, the molecules arrange themselves in complex patterns that dictate the ...

Machine learning diagnoses pneumonia by listening to coughs

A new algorithm could spot early signs of respiratory diseases in hospitals and at home

09-Dec-2022

Pneumonia is one of the world's leading causes of death and affects over a million people a year in the United States. The disease disproportionately impacts children, older adults, and hospitalized patients. To give them the greatest chance at recovery, it is crucial to catch and treat it early. ...

Listen to the toilet — it could detect disease

Microphone sensor and machine learning can classify excretion events, identify cholera or other bowel diseases, all without identifiable information

07-Dec-2022

Cholera, a bacterial disease that induces diarrhea, affects millions of people and results in about 150,000 deaths each year. Identifying potential communal disease spread for such an outbreak would alert health professionals early and improve the allocation of resources and aid. However, for ...
