Simplifying skin disease diagnosis with topical nanotechnology(Nanowerk News) In a new SLAS Technology commentary ("Simplifying Skin Disease Diagnosis with Topical Nanotechnology"), two authors of an article recently published in Nature Biomedical Engineering ("Abnormal scar identification with spherical-nucleic-acid technology") share more insight into their unique method for skin disease diagnosis using NanoFlare nanotechnology.
|In particular, the authors address point-of-care diagnosis and image acquisition, which are the primary bottlenecks in efficient disease diagnosis.|

|Authors David Yeo, Ph.D., and Prof. Chenjie Xu, Ph.D., of the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) use NanoFlare to enable biopsy-free disease diagnosis and progression monitoring in response to therapy.|
|It is a minimally-invasive, self-applied alternative that can reduce scarring and infection risks; improve accessibility to disease diagnosis; provide timely feedback of treatment efficacy; and reduce healthcare personnel time and attention, hence the overall healthcare burden.|
