Both of the RT-PCR-based tests are designed to detect the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid gene in a variety of swab samples and other specimens.

Weak Spot Found

Sandia National Lab researchers found a vulnerable point in the process scientists use to uncover genetic alterations, Health IT Security says.

With CRISPR being applied to a range of biological problems, researchers are searching for ways to stop its edits, Technology Review reports.

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.
