  BE Seniors Take on the Flu to Win Design Competition
  A quick and accurate flu diagnostic, developed by Penn Engineering's Bioengineering Senior Design team, has the potential for world-wide impact. Appropriate influenza treatment is hampered by diagnostic tools that are either rapid or accurate, but not both. The winning students developed a best-of-both-worlds technology: a microfluidic device that, applied using a standard nasal swab technique, uses fluorescence to quickly identify influenza-infected cells.
