BioChip May Make Diagnosis of Leukemia and HIV Faster, Cheaper, Penn State University Study

Published: May 31, 2012

"HIV is diagnosed based on counting CD4 cells," said Tony Jun Huang, associate professor of engineering science and mechanics at Penn State. "Ninety percent of the diagnoses are done using flow cytometry."
