A technique to pump tiny amounts of marker fluids onto a test sample could enable many more tests during a biopsy and therefore a better understanding of a person's cancer.
A new gadget can capture and culture circulating cancer cells shed by a tumor, providing important data about cancer progression and how patients respond to treatment.
Researchers miniaturize a more expensive diagnostic test into a single-use microfluidic chip roughly the size of a miscroscope slide.
Biomedical engineers at UC Davis unveil a plug-in interface they compare to USB to connect microfluidics to electronic devices for biological and chemical testing on the go.
Device that could scan blood and water for pathogens combines the chip technology found in digital cameras with microfluidics, the science of channeling liquid on a tiny scale.
Researchers at Penn State University explore the insides of our cells with nano-sized, rocket-shaped metal projectiles powered by sound.
Without any screening tests, pancreatic cancer is rarely diagnosed early, and has become the fourth-leading cause of cancer deaths in the US. Steve Jobs died of it at the age of 56 in 2011.
A Stanford researcher reinvents the chemistry set completely in the form of an inexpensive gizmo modeled after a hand-crank music box.
UCLA researchers say their optical microscope can detect rare cells with sensitivity of one part per million -- in real time.
A startup creates a physical keyboard for touch-screen devices, like smartphones or tablets, that appears when you need to type and disappears when you're done. CNET's Sumi Das tries it out.
