Image: Microscopy images taken of Zika-infected primate placenta samples that were stained to detect Zika by immunohistochemistry. The left image shows a sample treated with the EASE protocol, with red/orange colored signals of Zika infection clearly visible (white arrows). The right image shows a sample treated with a standard protocol, and Zika virus - though present - was not detected (Photo courtesy of the University of Washington).

Horseradish Complex Increases Sensitivity of Immunochemical Assays

Antimalarial Compound Improves Forensics of Bloodstains

Forensic investigators often use a luminol chemiluminescence test to detect latent bloodstains at crime scenes. Now, researchers have found that combining luminol with the antimalarial drug artemisinin, a natural peroxide, reduces the risk of false positives compared to the traditional method that mainly uses hydrogen peroxide or sodium perborate as coreactants. They also obtained test results using a smartphone, which could provide highly accurate on-scene analyses. More...
