German Group Develops On-Chip RPA Arrays for Isothermal Virus Detection

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Researchers in Germany have developed the first flow-through microfluidic microarray with automated detection using recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) for on-chip amplification.  The isothermal method was able to detect and quantify a panel of three viruses and bacteria, but researchers said the array size might be virtually unlimited.  In a proof-of-principle study published earlier this month in …

Reliable electricity is a rare commodity in some parts of Guinea, which means some traditional medical equipment often is useless. So researchers there are using a new tool to identify Ebola cases: a portable diagnostic machine that fits in a suitcase and runs on a solar battery. Read the full story
