The nanotech disease detector

What if a scanner could detect diseases even before a patient shows symptoms? The revolutionary break-through by Nanobiosym – a company based in Cambridge – provides handheld diagnostic machines that use nanotechnology to identify a range of serious diseases such as HIV in minutes.

The precision control technology enables the diagnosis of a disease using genetic fingerprints in real-time. For instance, the device can detect the Ebola virus even before symptoms are visible in patients.

With over 4 billion people worldwide who do not have access to basic healthcare, this kind of innovation can be a critical life-saver.

Can nanotechnology revolutionize the detection of life-threatening diseases in real-time?
