Revolutionary function similar device to that used by diabetics to control blood sugar levels, developed team from the United Kingdom which detects the HIV from just one drop of blood. The time frame is 20 minutes to get out the results as opposed to existing, time-consuming tests, which require at least three days. Is then the player will be able to regularly check the levels of virus in the body.
The research team from Imperial College and DNA Electronics headed by Dr. Graham Cooke published their research in the journal Scientific Rports with the results. The test device was held to 991 blood samples and the accuracy rate for the detection of the virus reached 95%. Spectacular those results impressed the researchers have already started research to develop a similar device for the detection of different viruses such as that of hepatitis.
Member of the group which contributed to the development of innovative USB is the Cypriot origin, Chris Toumazou Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Imperial University and founder of Electronics DNA. The device has won respect in the medical and technological cycle as it can offer a solution to suffering persons and entities, in areas isolated from the nearest hospitals and prevention centers.
