Research and innovation addressing today's greatest health challenges

Accelerating early disease detection with nanobiotechnology

Imagine this scenario:  Annual physical examinations are supplemented by an affordable home diagnostic chip, allowing you to regularly monitor your baseline health with just a simple urine sample. Though outwardly you appear to be in good health, the device reveals a fluctuation in your biomarker profile, indicating the possible emergence of early stage cancer development […]

Microfluidic probe for personalized healthcare

The sequencing of the entire human genome back in the early 2000s is considered one of the most important scientific breakthrough enabling data-driven medicine. It flooded researchers in biology with a tremendous amount of Big Data that needed to be processed and tested. It was around then that DNA microarrays, small glass chips where thousands […]
