Police Speed Radar Technology Used to Diagnose Infections

Scientists use Doppler radars to identify pathogens in living cells

Doppler radars power a wide spectrum of technologies: Handheld devices used by cops to catch speedsters, spacecraft navigation systems, and in weather monitors.

There’s now one more to add to the Doppler hall of fame. Researchers at Purdue University have recently described how this specialized radar technology can be leveraged to detect the presence of pathogens such as E. coli in living cells, in real-time — a technique known as…
