Professor Milton Lee: “You don’t have to wait to get results when you really need to know right then. This little system allows clinics to test blood and urine samples without having to send the samples to a lab out of state.”

A team of researchers at BYU have designed a portable device capable of detecting toxic or harmful substances in water.

The device, called a nanoflow liquid chromatograph, pumps a liquid sample through a capillary and into a detector and identifies what chemicals and elements are present.
