Bioassay System Bioassays require to provide extensive molecular profiles of patients to guide the clinician in making viable diagnosis and prognosis. Unfortunately there is not one molecular marker that can provide sufficient information to assist the clinician in making effective prognoses or even diagnoses. The classical hospital diagnostic format is viewed as a valuable tools in many bioassays, but possesses numerous limitations due primarily to their cost and convenience. As such, if biosensors are to become valuable tools at distributable environment for diagnosis and prognosis of diseases, they will revolutionize the medical system.

Despite remarkable advances in medical research and treatments , infectious diseases remain among the leading causes of death worldwide for three reasons: (1) emergence of new infectious diseases; (2) re-emergence of old infectious diseases; and (3) persistence of intractable infectious diseases. Many logistical and scientific challenges stand in the way of better prevention, treatment, and control strategies for emerging diseases and those infectious diseases that primarily affect the developing world. One of the major challenges is the development of biomedical diagnostic system. Infectious Disease Diagnostic System

Current technology for biodetection relies on an extensive laboratory infrastructure and the availability of trained personnel. There is a pressing need for quantitative biodetection tools in situations where laboratory resources are not readily available. A high level of system integration is necessary for replicating the functionality of a biodetection protocol in an inexpensive, palm-held device that is reliable, highly-sensitive, speedy, compact, and economically feasible to detect various bioagents.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
