Paired with a smartphone, pill-sized 'heater' developed at U of T could be used to diagnose infectious disease

Researchers at the University of Toronto have developed a tiny “heater” – about the size of a pill – that could allow resource-limited regions around the world to test for infectious diseases without the need for specialized training or costly lab equipment.

The technology, developed by researchers in the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, regulates the temperature of biological samples through different stages of diagnostic testing, which is crucial to the accuracy of test results.
