[case_player][/case_player] Genetically modified chickens can lay eggs that contain an important immune-boosting human protein. Researchers at Scotland's University of Edinburgh Roslin Institute have developed a more efficient means of creating transgenic chickens. The egg whites produced by these...
Historically, high-sensitivity diagnostic testing for many common diseases consisted of sending samples to an offsite laboratory and potentially waiting hours or days before results were attained and shared with the treating clinician. In recent years, however, rapid digital immunoassays (DIAs) have been...
Abbott has developed two types of implantable neurostimulation devices that employ two advanced spinal column stimulation (SCS) techniques, respectively, dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation and Abbott's proprietary BURSTDR™ stimulation. Both types of SCS neuromodulation may be superior to conventional...
Exoskeletons intended for medical purposes are motorized braces that help control a patient's body and limb movements. These sophisticated body frames are increasingly being used as a tool for rehabilitating patients with brain or spinal cord injuries. Exoskeleton technology, when properly utilized, may have...

[case_player][/case_player] A Massachusetts company is developing an all-in-one device that can test for many known pathogens on-site, addressing the time and cost disadvantages of having to transport samples to an off-site location. The LX2 automated genetic analyzer uses light to determine whether...
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a widely-used neurological technique for modifying and rehabilitating brain function. Closed-loop or “smart” DBS systems currently under development are the next evolutionary step in neuronal signal augmentation and may offer physicians more individualized treatment...
