New Guidelines for Accurate Diagnosis of C. difficile Infection

In spite of distinct and serious signs, CDI testing is often not performed on patients. In fact, nearly two-thirds of CDI cases are not reported because of the failure of clinicians to request testing for C. difficile toxins.

 qVIRO-X Nanoparticle Characterization System from Izon Science
 
qVIRO-X Nanoparticle Characterization System from Izon ScienceqViro-X directly measures the size of individual nanoparticles in solution, to build up an accurate profile of concentration (viral titre) against size, and therefore the degree of sample aggregation. Results are available within minutes, and each measurement requires only 40 µL of sample fluid.
 
 
 Using spherical nucleic acids to track and treat disease
 
Using spherical nucleic acids to track and treat diseaseSpherical nucleic acids are structures that are made by taking a nanoparticle template and using chemistry to arrange short strands of DNA or RNA on the surface of those particles. The spherical core of the nanoparticle creates a spherical arrangement of DNA or RNA, similar to tiny little balls of nucleic acids.
