Notre Dame Researchers Are Improving the Speed and Practicality of Detecting Disease

June 15, 2017

To improve the speed and practicality of common diagnostic tests, Notre Dame researchers have been working to develop an improved test method and have recently published a study on a new method that uses gold nanoparticles, requires little to no expertise, and provides results in minutes.

Notre Dame Researchers are Improving the Speed and Practicality of Detecting Disease

Published: June 12, 2017, Author: Brandi Klingerman To detect an illness in the body, common diagnostic tests like the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) are used. Unfortunately, ELISA takes hours to process and requires expert analysis, limiting its benefits for developing countries and those who require immediate results. In order to combat these challenges, Notre Dame researchers have been working to develop an improved test and have recently published a study on a new diagnostic method that uses gold nanoparticles, requires little to no expertise, and provides results in minutes.
