Researchers develop an ingestible bacteria-on-a-chip to diagnose disease.


Biomolecular monitoring in the gastrointestinal tract could offer rapid, precise disease detection and management, however, it is impeded by access to the remote and complex environment.  Now, a study from researchers at MIT develops an ingestible sensor equipped with genetically engineered bacteria which can diagnose bleeding in the stomach or other gastrointestinal problems.  The team state that by combining engineered
