The test, based on the next generation of a spinning disk platform, detects three enterotoxins and DNA from three enteric pathogens. 

The portable system uses centrifugal microfluidics, with molecular tests deploying a visualization method that obviates the need for sample prep.

The new device rotates heating blocks to contact a stationary sample and is meant to be integrated with a plug-and-play digital microfluidics hub.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) ― Manipulating miniature droplets and subjecting them to high temperatures on an open digital microfluidic device leads to evaporation that can seriously disrupt concentration-dependent enzymatic reactions, like PCR.

Scientists and engineers at Sandia National Laboratories have built a prototype of a modular microfluidic library preparation platform that will allow users to process small numbers of DNA samples for next-gen sequencing in an automated fashion.

Sandia National Laboratories researchers have developed a new immunoassay platform called SpinDx that they say could offer substantial improvements over standard ELISAs in terms of cost, speed, and sensitivity.

Arrayit has been awarded two separate contracts for its microarray manufacturing services: one with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and another with Sandia National Laboratories.

Sandia Labs will use the technology to develop biosecurity microarray tools.

Researchers trace DNA on a clay pipe found at a former slave site to a population that lives in what is now Sierra Leone, the Washington Post reports.

Two researchers report on their genetic analysis of samples from a shawl thought to belong to a victim of Jack the Ripper, ScienceInsider reports.

Japan is to release rules governing some gene-edited food, according to NHK World.
