Health is one of the most profitable industries reported. Apple knows this and has spent years investing in it, either from the Health app to the development of its iPhone and Apple Watch devices. But it is not the only fortunately many researchers carry out vital research to improve our health and for diseases that currently hit us harshly as cancer, become a hindrance in the not too distant future.
This is the case of the research team at Washington State University, led by Professor Li Lei, who has just published a paper with the design of a prototype of a portable laboratory controlled by any iPhone . This amazing laboratory is able to detect cancer with 99% accuracy almost instantly. In addition, you will also be able to analyze up to eight samples at once.
Why you are handled with an iPhone?
Although the medium term is estimated that can be used with other smartphones, currently the app to control this portable lab is designed for iPhone. While it is not the first medical instrument controlled by a smartphone, the challenge was to analyze many samples simultaneously and with such high precision. To do so Li has worked with an iPhone 5, due to its simplicity and stability.
