Meaghan's Minute: Microchip Tests for Diabetes

Today on Meaghan's Minute, brought to you by Memory Protection Devices, Stanford researchers have developed a nanotech microchip to help diagnose type-1 diabetes.

The microchip relies on a fluorescence-based method for detecting the antibodies. The team’s innovation is that the glass plates forming the base of each microchip are coated with an array of nanoparticle-sized islands of gold, which intensify the fluorescent signal, enabling reliable antibody detection allowing doctors to quickly and cheaply track their patients’ auto-antibody levels before they show symptoms.
