Healthy Living: Lab in a Box

9&10 Logo

Scientists at Vanderbilt University are working on a process that ultimately may allow patients to get test results faster.

The process involves automating the duplication process of a person’s DNA to bring those DNA levels up to the point where they can be detected.

In Healthy Living we share details on the lab that essentially fits in a box.

Right now, the Adaptive PCR is the size of a shoebox, but Leelawong and her team are working to make it even smaller.

They are designing a device that can fit in the palm of your hand.
