New way to diagnose malaria by detecting parasite's waste in infected blood cells

Science Daily - Malaria - August 31, 2014 - 19:03

"There is real potential to make this into a field-deployable system, especially since you don't need any kind of labels or dye. It's based on a naturally occurring biomarker that does not require any biochemical processing of samples" says one of the senior authors of a paper.
