Heated nickel foam HVAC filters could protect against SARS-CoV-2
New "catch and kill" air filters can instantly and efficiently kill SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. The details of the nickel foam-based prototype were published in Materials Today Physics on July 7. Read More
Companion diagnostics survive COVID-19 with small nick
The COVID-19 crisis has had a slightly negative, but not critical, impact on the market for companion diagnostics, according to a new market report from market research firm Kalorama Information. Read More
Machine learning helps identify antimicrobial-resistant bacteria
A new graphical user interface-driven, machine learning-based approach has successfully identified antimicrobial resistance genes for gram-positive and -negative bacteria. This work, presented in Scientific Reports on July 3, may make it easier to identify deadly antimicrobial-resistant bacteria. Read More
Scientists urge that surveillance of a new SARS-CoV-2 variant is necessary
A SARS-CoV-2 variant carrying an amino acid change, D614G, in the spike protein has become the predominant form of the virus in the current global pandemic. A recent publication in Cell advocated for viral surveillance to aid in the development of immunological interventions. Read More
Would infecting healthy people with SARS-CoV-2 speed the race to a vaccine?
Could the race to develop a vaccine for SARS-CoV-2 be sped up if researchers were able to study the virus in healthy individuals? And how could such research be conducted safely? These questions were covered in an article published July 1 in the New England Journal of Medicine. Read More
