Engineers at Brown University have designed a biological device that can measure glucose concentrations in human saliva. The technique could eliminate the need for diabetics to draw blood to check their glucose levels. The biochip uses plasmonic interferometers and could be used to measure a range of biological and environmental substances. Results are published in Nano Letters. For the 26 million Americans with diabetes, drawing blood is the most prevalent way to check glucose levels. It...

Speed can save lives — especially in the case of blood poisoning. The more quickly and directly doctors recognize and treat sepsis, the greater the patient´s chances of survival. With the help of a new biochip, physicians will now be able to analyze blood within their own practice. Is the patient suffering from blood poisoning? To answer this question, the doctor draws a blood sample and sends it to a central laboratory for testing. This takes up valuable time, which could cost...
