3D printing improves accessibility for common diagnostic testing

Written by Georgi Makin

A team from the University of Connecticut (CT, USA) has developed a new technology for reducing the cost and time of common medical laboratory testing, utilizing ELISA through an alternative route to traditional tests. A team of chemists from the University of Connecticut (CT, USA) has designed a novel adapted pipette tip for conducting ELISA tests within the tip itself. The concept involves running the ELISA tests within a single-use pipette tip rather than a well-plate, reducing risks and problems associated with washing well-plates as well as the costs involved, investing in the expensive equipment in the first place. “The...
