Device Could Speed Diagnosis of Infections

Jeong-Yeol Yoon and Dustin Harshman work on a device that can analyze pathogens in real time.

A new diagnostic device created by a collaborative team of UA researchers, including BME's Jeong-Yeol Yoon, may significantly reduce the amount of time necessary to diagnose tissue infections. The device’s novel approach to molecular diagnostics, called DOTS qPCR, is faster, more efficient and less expensive than options currently being used in clinics.
