Three Class of 2014 Bioengineers Develop Point-of-Care Blood Test

Build a better mousetrap. That’s the axiom for entrepreneurial success, and one which three young bioengineers have leveraged to improve the typical blood test. If their prototype proves successful, 2014 graduates Peter Bacas, Max Lamb and Nishant Neel intend to replace a typical needle-based test with a pain-free experience that provides almost instantaneous results. “Data […]

BE Seniors Take on the Flu to Win Design Competition

A quick and accurate flu diagnostic, developed by Penn Engineering’s Bioengineering Senior Design team, has the potential for world-wide impact. According to the World Health Organization, influenza epidemics result in 3 to 5 million cases of severe illness, and about 250,000 to 500,000 deaths annually. Appropriate influenza treatment is hampered by diagnostic tools that are […]
