Collegiate Biomed Engineering Prizes Awarded

Abstract:
The National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance has recently issued prizes in the annual Biomedical Engineering Innovation, Design and Entrepreneurship Awards (BMEIdea). The contest is designed to motivate young biomedical engineers to design new products that might eventually by commercialized, something the graduates will have to deal with once in the industry. The first place was awarded to a team from Stanford University that developed a "Lab-on-a-Stick" device that can quickly screen for a variety of disease markers.

Lab-on-a-Stick uses Giant magnetoresistive (GMR) devices to detect virtually any infectious disease—from HIV/AIDS to Hepatitis C to tuberculosis—in a rapid wash-free format. Patients in need of a rapid diagnosis (results are available in an average of fifteen minutes) need only to swab the insides of their cheeks with a disposable "stick," pre-treated with assorted protein receptors, and scan that stick with the handheld GMR device. This cost-effective technology addresses the need for more accessible nanotechnology diagnostics outside the laboratory, and seeks to replace the need for diagnostic labs completely.
