Researchers have developed a novel platform to more accurately detect and identify the presence and severity of peanut allergies, without directly exposing patients to the allergen, according to a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports.
Cameras, telescopes and microscopes are optical devices that measure and manipulate electromagnetic radiation [light]. Being able to control the light in these devices provides more information through a better “picture” of what is occurring. Specifically, controlling light on small scales could lead to improved optical sources for applications that span health,
Notre Dame researchers have recently published a study on a new diagnostic method that uses gold nanoparticles, requires little to no expertise, and provides results in minutes.
