New 3D-printed technology lowers cost of common medical test

Share this post

A desire for a simpler, cheaper way to do common laboratory tests for medical diagnoses and to avoid ‘washing the dishes’ led researchers to develop a new technology that reduces cost and time. The 3D-printed pipette-tip test developed by the researchers leverages what ‘has long been the gold standard for measuring proteins, pathogens, antibodies and other biomolecules in complex matrices,’ they say. The method still employs the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, also known as ELISA, but through a different route.
