In the world of cancer detection, technology is rapidly evolving, and researchers are constantly developing newer and better ways to scope out those deadly cells. Well some researchers from MIT and Harvard have developed a new design for their carbon nanotube device that they came up with four years ago. This new version of the device is touted to work 8 times better. Instead of silicon solid tubes that were used in the original version, they used highly porous carbon nanotubes that allow cells to flow through them, increasing the chances of catching cancer cells. It wasn’t mentioned when or if this technology will be used in hospitals, but the sooner the better, as they say – prevention is better than cure, and early detection is the key to preventing cancer. Head here for the full report.
