Scientists have developed a cheap and simple test that can detect malignancy in 10 minutes. Developed by scientists in Australia’s Queensland University, this killer tool helps diagnose all types of cancer early, making detection as simple as reading the colour.
The method uses a fluid that changes colour in the case of malignancy in any part of the body. For patients, the test saves time and money as it can be performed by local clinics and without costly and invasive procedures such as a biopsy. A chance discovery that DNA strands in normal cells and malignant tissue react differently to some metals led to the development of the test, scientists say.
