Road Map to modernized production of lifesaving drugs, food preservation identified by Purdue University

September 13, 2017

A new 10-year road map to identify the improvements that are needed in lyophilisation has been published by the Advanced Lyophilization Technology Hub, or LyoHUB, at Purdue University. A consortium of experts is working to modernize a process that is used in making a wide range of products, from freeze-dried space foods to lifesaving wonder drugs. The process, called “lyophilization,” removes water at low temperature and pressure. Lyophilization is needed for products that would be damaged if they were dried by heating, but it can be slow, energy-intensive and expensive.

Is climate change the culprit behind floods and farming woes?

September 3, 2017

“Cities are not just concrete,” says Dev Niyogi, professor of agronomy at Purdue University. “They also have transport and air conditioning and other things.” They store heat during the day and release it at night, creating an urban heat island and making cities hotter by about 3-5 degree Celsius than surrounding areas.

Self-powered, paper-based device can detect diseases

August 23, 2017

Scientists, including those of Indian origin, have developed a new portable, paper-based device that can identify diseases such as anaemia and can be powered just by rubbing or pressing it. Researchers at Purdue University in the US built self- powered, paper-based electrochemical devices (SPEDs) can provide sensitive diagnostics to patients in regions that have limited access to resources or medical equipments.

Research could lead to test strips for early cervical cancer detection

March 28, 2017

Purdue researchers are developing technology that could lead to the early detection of cervical cancer with low-cost, easy-to-use, lateral flow test strips similar to home pregnancy tests. "This field really needs an additional way to test for cervical cancer. A test that can report cervical cancer right away is very instrumental in a lot of low- and middle-income countries where women often get HPV tests and then never come back," said Joseph Irudayaraj, professor of biological engineering in Purdue's School of Agricultural and Biological Engineering. "In higher-income countries, it's important that anything beyond HPV tests have the ability to complement those tests."
