Diagnosing Tuberculosis With A Nanotrap
The key to preventing the spread of tuberculosis—the second biggest killer among infectious diseases—is to rapidly identify people who are contagious and then keep them under quarantine. Yet current diagnostic methods are slow or unreliable. Now, by combining a nanoscale filter and mass spectrometry, researchers have developed a relatively speedy approach that could diagnose infectious cases of tuberculosis (Anal. Chem. 2014, DOI: . . .
