    Portable Photonic Crystal Biosensor Detects, Quantifies HIV in Africa

    Article obtained from BioPhotonics RSS Feed.

    Two African researchers have combined their laser expertise to develop a device that could improve the quality of treatment and life expectancy of people living with HIV.

    Sello Manoto, an African Laser Centre grant holder and CSIR Biophotonics senior researcher, and Ahmed El-Hussein, of Cairo University in Egypt, have joined together on a scientific research project that focuses on a point-of-care photonic crystal biosensor for HIV detection and viral load quantification.

    Manoto said the goal of the project is to create an HIV viral load portable device that can detect and quantify HIV particles with higher sensitivity. It will also allow HIV-positive patients to monitor their viral load daily in the comfort of their own homes….
