Genetic Flaws Leads to Diabetes
...h out the type 2 diabetes. They were checked using microchip
array technique to scan and evaluate their genome. With the different results the teams collaborated together to study the result in a larger cohort. Thus they have created a large data base of information involving different types of population. ...
New Microchip for Protein Sorting
...stern blotting an old-fashioned technique. // The microchip
system has an extremely tiny sieve structure built...lower and more labor-intensive to process. The new microchip
system could sort proteins in minutes, as compared to the hours necessary for gel-based systems. T...
A Patented Device for Rapid Diagnosis of Diseases
...the cancer patient. Future applications that this microchip
could be used for are of great importance, as they can provide genetic diagnosis tools for doctors to carry out early diagnoses of diseases associated with our genetic inheritance or with the malfunctioning of the mechanisms for the translation of ou...
New Ideas on Developing Thought-Controlled Artificial Limbs
...se that the nervous-tissue interface - through the microchip
- could detect and record real-time signals conducted down the nerve and stimulate the sensory signals back through the axons. In another study, Smith and colleagues showed that these stretch-grown axons could grow when transplanted into a rat mode...
New Diagnostic Test Detects Avian Flu In Less Than 12 Hours
...fy bits of genetic material, and it comprises of a microchip
covered with bits of genetic material from many different flu strains that can reveal which flu a human or an animal has. The test will enable public health officials to quickly decide on the appropriate actions to be taken in case of a bird flu out...
Kidney Transplant Recipients Tardy In Taking Vital Medications
...tem (MEMS) to follow such patients. The MEMS has a microchip
in the cap to record the date and time the cap is removed to take medicine, thus keeping track of when it is taken. “With this information, we hope to find characteristics that could predict potential problems and develop intervention methods that wo...
Eye Diseases Diagnosed Through Genetical Testing
...ists have created a first-of-its-kind test on a // microchip
array that will help physicians hone their diagnoses for patients with the blinding disease known as retinitis pigmentosa (RP). The screening technique has proven to be reliable and cost-effective. In the new issue of Investigative Ophthalmology & V...
