IIT-G develops hand-held device to detect bacteria

The hand-held device, with bio-compatible sensor, can also diagnose time-critical illnesses such as meningitis, Parameswar K Iyer, one of the lead researchers, said. “The research has enabled rapid detection of bacteria, which is not just important in healthcare, but also in anti- bioterrorism measures and environmental monitoring,” he said. Bacterial infection is a common cause of morbidity and mortality across ... Read More »

IIT-G develops low-cost, hand-held device to detect bacteria rapidly

The device will enable rapid detection of bacteria, which is important not only in healthcare, but also in anti-bioterrorism measures and environmental monitoring applications, according to the research published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A. Bacterial infection is a common cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and despite development of a range of antibiotics, the challenge continues to lie ... Read More »

Artificial Intelligence used to detect fast radio bursts

FRBs are mysterious and powerful flashes of radio waves from space, thought to originate billions of light years from the Earth, said researchers from Swinburne University of Technology in Australia.  They last for only a few milliseconds or a thousandth of a second and their cause is one of astronomy’s biggest puzzles. The system, described in the journal Monthly Notices ... Read More »

AI can detect depression in child’s speech

According to the research published in the Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics, the tool potentially provides a fast and easy way of diagnosing conditions that are difficult to spot and often overlooked in young people. Around one in five children suffer from anxiety and depression, collectively known as “internalising disorders.” However, since children under the age of eight can ... Read More »

Flourescent nanodots may help detect cancer: IIT scientists

The research, published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C, shows that fluorescent nanodots can reveal how water is distributed inside biological cells. The team from Indian Institute of Technology, Mandi showed that water distribution inside cancer cells differ from the normal ones. The human body is composed of trillions of cells, with their own specialised functions. Cells have multiple ... Read More »

Innovative research uses remote radio telescope to detect cosmic rays

Curtin University researchers have developed a particle detector at the remote site of the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) radio telescope that is capable of conducting a ground-breaking study into mysterious cosmic rays in the area’s harsh conditions. The project is the first coupling of a particle detector with the MWA, located in Western Australia’s Mid-West region about 800km north of ... Read More »
