When it comes to one particular disease that has no 100% cure, the good fight against cancer goes on. So far, over the years, many different advancements in medical technology has happened to help cancer patients recover from their ordeal, or at least to check the disease at an early stage. Well, the Dainippon Screen Mfg. Co. Ltd. has come up with a high-speed 3D cell scanner over at JASIS 2013, which happens to be an exhibition of analytical and scientific instruments.
This particular scanner calls itself the “Cell3iMager,” where it is capable of quickly measuring and analyzing the increase as well as transformation of cancer cells which have been cultured on a culture plate, all without the need to involve a reagent. This particular scanner was launched by Dainippon Screen in July this year, and has been described as the company’s “first step toward an entry into the life science field.” Hopefully, with the ability to be able to measure and analyze cancer cells that are within a patient’s body in a far faster and more detailed manner, doctors will be able to treat the disease with a higher rate of success, not to mention helping accelerate research work for the disease.
