A group of scientists from the U.S. have created the device, greatly accelerating the diagnosis of infectious diseases tissues. This reports Zee News. If modern devices require more than an hour at one stage of diagnosis, we developed the technology to cope with the same task for 3.5 minutes. This reduces the costs of conducting medical research to identify the pathogen.
Traditional polymerase chain reaction (PCR) works well, but requires a lot of time. As a result due to busy laboratories physicians receive the result of a particular infection in a patient in 3-7 days. Molecular diagnostics DOTS qPCR faster and cheaper process.
The sampling of biological material and the study at the hospital, according to scientists, should take no longer than 10 minutes. This will allow faster to detect the infection and begin targeted treatment.
