An Iowa State University Professor has earned national recognition for his research on a faster and cheaper way to analyze blood. Chemistry professor Ed Yeung won what’s called an R&D 100 award. The awards highlight the top 100 products of technological significance that were licensed or marketed during the last calendar year. Yeung’s process is being developed into a machine called the “M-C-E 2001.” It separates, detects, and monitors chemical or biochemical compounds in the blood stream faster than the current technology. He says they found a way to use know technologies to do the process at a very high speed.Yeung says the new method will help scientists detect disease earlier.This is Yeung’s fourth R-and-D 100 Award.
