When doctors or researchers are analyzing diseases, like flu, speed is critical. Veredus Labs. Pte Ltd. has created a molecular diagnostic test that can detect infection within two hours, providing infection information that traditionally would take days to determine. The portable lab-on-chip application just completed evaluation trials at the National University Hospital of Singapore. STMicroelectronics provides the disposable system-on-chip device, which includes processors and the peripherals needed to accurately process and analyze minute patient samples of human blood, serum or respiratory swabs. Since chips are tossed after each use, the risk of cross-contamination is dramatically reduced.
