Microfluidic technologies for genomic interrogation of mycobacterium tuberculosis clinical isolates using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and high resolution melting analysis (HRMA).
Background: A number of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) genes have been shown to be under positive selection pressure in the presence of anti-TB therapy. This results in the selection of drug resistant phenotypes associated ...
Light forge : a microfluidic high throughput platform for rapid and affordable detection of drug resistant strains of tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis is one of the most deadly infectious diseases currently plaguing the global community. Unfortunately, lack of accessible, reliable and affordable diagnostic tools in the high disease burden, and resource poor ...
Technologies for a user-friendly microfluidic system for portable applications.
In the same way that the HIV virus subdues the human immune system, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has severely overloaded the health service infrastructure in resource limited countries and threatens to systematically suppress ...
Microfluidic technologies for capturing and concentrating human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) particles.
HIV-1 RNA assays are routinely used in developed countries to monitor the effectiveness of antiretroviral therapy (ART). These assays require well-trained operators, expensive equipment and reagents, and established ...
