Russian Scientists Develop Nanosensors to Find Cancer, HIV and More with Mobile Phone

Russian scientists have developed a nano-sensor to detect cancerous tumours, viral disease markers for HIV, hapatitis and herpes, which appear when the immune system responds to incurable diseases. The ultracompact nonomechanical sensors help analyze chemical elements and detect bio-dynamics indicating the diseases, said researchers from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT). The sensor can help doctors identify tumour markers, ...
