Inkjet printer could produce tool to identify infectious disease
Apr 16, 2015 United States
Consumers are one step closer to benefiting from packaging that could give simple text warnings when food is contaminated with deadly pathogens like E. coli and Salmonella, and patients could soon receive real-time diagnoses of infections such as C. difficile right in their doctors' offices, saving critical time and trips to the lab.
'Smart bandage' detects bedsores before they are visible to doctors
Mar 23, 2015 United States
Engineers at UC Berkeley are developing a new type of bandage that does far more than stanch the bleeding from a paper cut or scraped knee.
