Rapid prototyping is a modern product development technique. This method uses 3D printing and other cutting-edge technology to streamline the prototyping process, decreasing the time
Stereolithography is one of the oldest types of 3D printing. The process applies laser light to photosensitive polymers (resins) to form models or prototypes under
PCR stands for polymerase chain reactions, an instrumental method that copies a DNA sample to amplify a small amount of DNA to study it more thoroughly on a larger scale. PCR has dramatically transformed the landscape of scientific research
The coronavirus pandemic of 2020 added extreme urgency to the development of diagnostic tests to identify the presence of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, or
Products from software to autos are subject to strict quality assurance processes, as well as design verification and validation. Products produced for a highly regulated
Laboratory tests to detect and diagnose novel respiratory infections like SARS-CoV-2 have benefitted from new technologies like nucleic acid amplification (NAAT) (a/k/a polymerase chain reaction
Early detection is critical to the prevention, treatment, and overall outcome of many catastrophic illnesses, including cancer, heart disease, autoimmune disorders, neurological diseases, and serious
A major step toward containing the explosive spread of COVID-19 infections is to identify and isolate those carrying the virus who may have no symptoms.
The original method of genomic sequencing took over a decade to complete. Now, next-generation sequencing can complete an entire human genome in a day. This
On October 6th, 2020, the NIH announced its awarded the third round of contracts to six new technologies for COVID-19 testing.
