Folded paper creates portable lab for field laboratory tests

(American Institute of Physics) Monitoring and tracking biological threats or epidemics require the ability to carry out tests in the field during austere situations. Expensive laboratory equipment is often unavailable in these settings, so inexpensive point-of-care technology is needed. Ordinary paper is often used, since it's cheap, portable and widely available. However, paper poses some problems that hinder its usefulness. In this week's Biointerphases, investigators report a technique that greatly improves the performance of paper-based point-of-care technologies.
