Rapid diagnostic detects Lassa and Ebola in real-time

from Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard via Medical Xpress

One of the keys to bringing a viral outbreak under control is rapid detection and diagnosis, which depend on the availability of fast, low-cost, easy-to-use tests that don't require labs or expensive equipment to process them. Scientists at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and collaborators in the United States, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone have now validated such tests for Ebola and Lassa — two of the deadliest and most transmissible human viruses — in settings with limited infrastructure. The work appears in Nature Communications. more
