Scientists at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) engineered a cutting-edge sensor chip which is capable of detecting the diseases just from the drop of blood.
The study describes how the researchers- Reginald Farrow and Alokik Kanwal along with their team created a carbon nanotube-based device in order to rapidly and noninvasively detect the mobile single cells with potential of maintaining high degree of spatial resolution.
Reginald Farrow, the research explained that with the help of sensors, the device was created which will enable the medical personnel to measure the electrical properties of the cells by simply putting s tiny drop of liquid on active area of the device.
The researcher, in the meanwhile also explained that this was not the first time that such kind of work was brought out, but the unique property of this device is the technique with which the electrical properties or patterns of cells are measured. Also, the device can explain how electrical properties differentiate between the cell types.
