The Cancer sniffer costs 10,000 Rs. and takes only an hour!
The scientists, from Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, have developed the nuclear magnetic resonance scanner which uses antibodies and magnetic particles to identify cancerous cells. The device costs only 10,000 Rupees / 200$ and is the size of a blood sugar monitor. You need to insert a needle full of sample tissue, for the device to start processing the cells for cancer. And at the end you need – an – iPod / iPad / iPhone to read the results thanks to an already avaialable application.
The scanner has a 96 % accuracy, compared Vis-à-vis the conventional 84% accuracy using traditional methods, makes this device a pretty great invention.
Talk about a “magical device” eh Steve Jobs! The fact that the iPhone is used so often in the medical world, in new innovations like this “One hour Cancer Sniffer” makes it truly “MAGICAL”
