Their ambitious attempt to improve the diagnosis of malaria in developing countries has clinched them the runner-up spot in the international James Dyson Award 2018. Over 212 million cases of malaria are reported annually, with the majority of incidences occurring in Sub-Saharan Africa.
However, a lack of medical resources means blood sample analysis is often delayed, leading to errors and ultimately high mortality rates. Seeking to improve the efficiency and accuracy of diagnosis, a group of students from Delft University of Technology are developing Excelscope, a semi-automated malaria diagnostic device.
AMSBIO introduces ALiCE® – a new high yield cell-free protein expression system. Cell-free protein expression (CFPE) is today used by protein chemists to quickly produce small amounts of proteins when screening DNA libraries. However current technologies are limited and there is a need for higher protein expression yields.
Skin reaction to spaceflight has not really been studied yet, although the skin has a very important barrier function to protect the body and can contribute to a more general understanding of physiology. It is proposed here to make a more thorough investigation of the skin during long-term spaceflight, using noninvasive techniques.
