Nanochip to detect oral cancer
In fact it is about detecting oral cancer in just ten minutes. If doctors need a sample of tissue from your mouth to analyze it in order to detect cancer, with the new microchip this painful operation is now forgotten. The only thing you need to do is to allow a brush to take some cells from your mouth. The cells will be then put on the chip. Then, the chip will be inserted into an analyzer. Now, if an ordinary tissue test lasts for one week, the nanochip analyzer will give back the results in just about ten minutes. The analyzer works on fluid and LEDs and is almost 93% accurate.
The team of inventors are now required – after they were given a big amount of money for this – to make further research and try to bring the device into almost any medical office.
As a potential patient, I would be glad if such nanochips were developed to analyze other types of tissue in order to detect other diseases as well. In fact, any device that will mean less or no pain at all and makes it possible for diseases to be detected would be the kind of medical equipment that I will go for.11
