Cheap and quick HIV testing made possible with DVD scanners
Video streaming and USB sticks have rendered DVD players are all but obsolete. But their cheap optics may find a new life in a cost-effective and speedy technique for on-the-spot HIV/AIDS testing and other analytics.
World record in DNA analysis
To date, scientists have been limited to running a small number of DNA samples at a time at a cost of SEK 100,000 per sample. KTH researchers have now come up with a new method which means that 5,000 samples can be run simultaneously for the same price. This cuts the cost per test result considerably and is a world record for the number of samples run in a single DNA sequence analysis.
