Towards quality assurance of AAL services
The Ambient Assisted Living domain is a fast growing area with many new technological artefacts and services developed. Most of the systems developed address end-users' needs. Yet, they have not achieved a large market penetration. The work presented here argues that this is primarily due to not suf...
Towards a "sample-in, answer-out" point-of-care platform for nucleic acid extraction and amplification - using a HPV E6/E7 mRNA model system
The paper presents the development of a "proof of principle" hands-free and self-contained diagnostic platform for detection of human papillomavirus (HPV) E6/E7 mRNA in clinical specimens. The automated platform performs chip-based sample pre-concentration, nucleic acid extraction, amplification and...
From research to implementation of AAL technologies-Norwegian experiences
