Invention of Mobile Poliovirus Diagnostic Platform

Róbert Gyurcsányi of Budapest University of Technology and Economics and Tamás Mészáros of Semmelweis University in Hungary are working with virologists and physicists to develop a poliovirus biosensor based on nanopores and aptamers. If successful, the device will allow on-site detection of poliovirus strains, making a poliovirus diagnostic available in low-resource areas.
