Description

Researchers from the University of Canberra are developing alternate tests, to replace blood tests, that are more convenient for patients living in rural areas or living with limited mobility.

Associate professor of science Ashraf Ghanem and his team are developing tests for common health conditions that require just a drop of dried blood that can be mailed to a laboratory for testing.
