Ingestible “bacteria on a chip” could help diagnose disease

Ultra-low-power sensors carrying genetically engineered bacteria can detect gastric bleeding. MIT researchers have built an ingestible sensor equipped with genetically engineered bacteria that can diagnose bleeding in the stomach or other gastrointestinal problems. This “bacteria-on-a-chip” approach combines sensors made from living cells with ultra-low-power electronics that convert the bacterial response Read more…
