Scientists work toward faster, easier, cheaper Ebola diagnostics

While test strips and expensive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) machines exist in the Ebola detection market, scientists are after a medical device that can detect and prevent the spread of Ebola at a lower cost. The goal is to be able to detect Ebola before outbreaks, like the current spread, hit major populated cities. New devices need to be able to detect the virus quickly from a small sample of DNA. Most importantly, researchers are trying to make sure that detection and prevention devices make it to the people who need them before the virus continues spreading further. More
