Influenza epidemics worldwide result in substantial economic and human costs annually. However, rapid and reliable flu diagnosis methods are significantly lacking. Here we have demonstrated the selective detection of influenza A viruses down to 29 viruses/μL in clinical exhaled breath condensate (EBC) samples (diluted by 100-fold) within minutes using silicon nanowire (SiNW) sensor devices. For 90% of the cases, we have observed that EBC samples tested positive or negative by gold standard… CONTINUE READING
