If you follow our Insights blog, you’ve read about some important milestones in the invention industry – from new technology development to patent reform. Insights is just one of the ways we participate in the conversation about invention and share information about who we are and what we do.

Another important way we highlight what we’re working on is through peer-reviewed research. Nathan Myhrvold, our CEO, has shared research on everything from intellectual property to paleontology, and employees across the company are encouraged to follow suit to promote collaboration with other scientists and, we hope, advance the many fields we work in.
Most recently, several IV Lab teams have published scientific papers about their investigations of malaria and tuberculosis diagnostics:
- The Optical TB Diagnostics team published “Automated bacterial identification by angle resolved dark-field imaging” in Biomedical Optics Express on how they demonstrated a dark-field imaging technique capable of automated identification of individual bacteria.
- Earlier this year, a paper by IV Lab’s Malaria Diagnostics team was published in the Malaria Journal. The paper, “Limitations of haemozoin-based diagnosis of Plasmodium falciparum using dark-field microscopy” discusses their investigation into the hemozoin crystal as a biomarker for malaria diagnostics.
- And a month later, the same team published a paper in the journal Lab on a Chip entitled “A paper microfluidic cartridge for automated staining of malaria parasites with an optically transparent microscopy” that looks at the work behind our microfluidic cartridge for automated staining of malaria parasites.
