Powerful New Chip Helps Diagnose Disease, Analyzes Protein Interactions, Stanford University School of Medicine Study

Published: Aug 21, 2012

Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Intel Corp. have collaborated to synthesize and study a grid-like array of short pieces of a disease-associated protein on silicon chips normally used in computer microprocessors. They used this chip, which was created through a process used to make semiconductors, to identify patients with a particularly severe form of the autoimmune disease lupus.
