Scientists from the Center for Systems Biology at Massachusetts General Hospital have integrated a microNMR device to smartphone enabling it to accurately detect cancer cells. The technology, for now, is just a prototype. But according to the scientists, this device enables extraction of small amounts of cells from a mass inside a patient, analyze the sample on the spot, acquire the results in an hour and update your medical records about it. Very handy isn’t it? This is very important since, early detection of cancer cells can help save a life.
