In just 7 hours, 18 minutes, US researchers went from collecting a blood sample to offering a disease diagnosis. This is the result of ultra-rapid DNA sequencing technology paired with massive cloud storage and computing.
A team of scientists in Korea and the United States have invented a device that can control neural circuits using a tiny brain implant controlled by a smartphone.
In a matter of seconds, a new algorithm read chest X-rays for 14 pathologies, performing as well as radiologists in most cases, a Stanford-led study says.
A new radiation sensor developed by US researchers is a wearable, disposable, film-type device fabricated on a paper substrate with cells of the yeast patterned between two electrodes and used as a smart material.
Australian researchers said Wednesday they have developed a blood test for melanoma in its early stages, calling it a "world first" breakthrough that could save many lives.
This month, the Estonian government kicks off a program that aims to collect the DNA of 100,000 of its 1.3 million residents. In return, it will offer them lifestyle and health advice based on their genetics.
Fuelium is developing paper-based batteries designed for disposable diagnostic devices.
Researchers have developed a mobile test using technology found in smartphones, and it could provide doctors and carers with a virtually instantaneous way of diagnosing someone with HIV.
Scientists at the University of Sussex have invented a new algorithm that enables smartwatches to detect and record your every move, without being told beforehand what to look for.
Researchers at BYU are the first to 3-D print a viable microfluidic device small enough to be effective at a scale much less than 100 micrometers.
