    Optical Diagnostic Platform Detects Multiple Viruses

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    University of Rochester researchers are developing an optical chip on a disposable card that is capable of detecting exposure to multiple viruses, within a minute and from a single drop of blood.

    The $1.7 million project is led by Benjamin Miller, a researcher at the University of Rochester Medical Center and funded by the U.S. Department of Defense Manufacturing Technology Program with CARES Act funds through a contract with AIM Photonics. The work also involves Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, which develops and manufactures laboratory testing and blood-typing technology; Syntec Optics, a maker of polymer optics; researchers at the NY CREATES 300-mm microelectronics research facility; and the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington,…
