Lab-on-paper strip: Small, inexpensive platform for diagnosing tropical fevers
(GIST (Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology)) Dengue, zika, and chikungunya viruses are transmitted by mosquitoes and cause tropical fevers with similar symptoms, making accurate diagnosis complicated. Now, researchers from Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology in Korea have developed a simple and low-cost diagnostic platform--a lab-on-paper strip--that can readily detect the specific RNA of these viruses from a small blood sample.
