A new sensor technology developed by researchers at Illinois and collaborators at Daktari Diagnostics in Boston can diagnose HIV/AIDS using just a drop of blood. The device is expected to provide less costly, easy-to-use, immediate disease diagnostics.

Using a microfluidic biochip (a miniaturized chip designed to process fluids and sense the cells electronically), the device works similar to a common blood sugar test.
