Better Test To Detect DNA For Diagnosing Disease, Investigating Crimes, Study in Journal of the American Chemical Society Study

ScienceDaily (Sep. 3, 2009) — Researchers in Singapore are reporting development of a new electronic sensor that shows promise as a faster, less expensive, and more practical alternative than tests now used to detect DNA. Such tests are done for criminal investigation, disease diagnosis, and other purposes. The new lab-on-a-chip test could lead to wider, more convenient use of DNA testing, the researchers say. Their study is scheduled for the Sept. 2 issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
