MADISON (WKOW) -- A team of UW-Madison researchers has developed a new tool for accurately diagnosing asthma.
One of the researchers, David Beebe, with the UW-Madison Biomedical Engineering Department, said asthma remains a difficult disorder to accurately diagnose. He says test currently consist of a series of clinical tests.
Now using just a single drop of blood, Beebe and his team have developed a faster and more accurate tool for diagnosing even mild cases of asthma.
Beebe said the new test looks at a correlation between asthmatic patients and the most abundant type of white blood cells in the body.
