Study brings diagnostics for viruses a step closer to reality

Image
Scientists have developed a technique which could form the basis of a non-invasive diagnostic for Adenovirus ā€“ the virus responsible for a large number of common illnesses.


The biosensor technology developed by researchers at the University of Leeds can not only detect the presence of the virus, it can also identify the individual strain and the number of virus particles present.

The study underpinning this research is published on Feb. 15 in the journal Biosensors & Bioelectronics. "Novel impedimetric immunosensor for the detection and quantitation of Adenovirus using reduced antibody fragments immobilized onto a conducting copolymer surface" - http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0956566311007858

Currently, testing for viruses is complicated, time consuming and requires specialist preparation of samples to identify virus DNA. Using this new technique, testing for viruses could be much quicker, simpler and ultimately less costly. For patients, this sort of diagnostic would mean faster treatment.
