Blood Clot News: Simple urine test uses nanotechnology to detect dangerous blood clotting

Soon people with clotting disorders will be able to pee on a stick to find out if they're getting a clot.

"There is no fast and easy way to diagnose these clots, which often remain undetected until they break free and cause a stroke or heart attack. However, new technology from MIT may soon change that: A team of engineers has developed a way to detect blood clots using a simple urine test."

"The noninvasive diagnostic, described in a recent issue of the journal ACS Nano, relies on nanoparticles that detect the presence of thrombin, a key blood-clotting factor."
