CRISPR-based Technology Enables High-Resolution Zika Detection On Low-Cost Paper Discs

Building off their earlier innovative development in “programmable diagnostics”, researchers on an international, multi-institutional team recently joined efforts to quickly prototype their low-cost rapid test with the goal that it could soon be used to screen samples (blood, urine, or saliva) for Zika virus and strain identification. More...
