System 'Prints' Precise Drug Dosages Tailored for Patients

by Purdue University

Researchers have created a prototype system that uses a mathematical model to predict - and a portable inkjet technology to produce - precise medication dosages tailored for specific patients, an advance in personalized medicine that could improve drug effectiveness and reduce adverse reactions.

Device Speeds Concentration Step in Food-pathogen Detection

Researchers have developed a system that concentrates foodborne salmonella and other pathogens faster than conventional methods by using hollow thread-like fibers that filter out the cells, representing a potential new tool for speedier detection.
