Scientists SKOLKOVO has developed a test that determines the presence of cancer in just 1 hour

Cancer, being one of the most dangerous, it is also quite difficult to identify in the early stages. The analysis can last from 1 day or more, which complicates the possibility of screening and prevention of cancer. But recently, experts "SKOLKOVO" has developed the latest test that helps to detect cancer in just 1 hour.

In the heart of the new development is the biochip, which is a plastic container with a few cells filled with the protein antibody-reagents. When placing a biological material, the antibodies remain constant or come into contact with the material. Then the cell begins to glow, which means the presence of a certain cancer. According to the statement the project Manager of the biomedical technologies cluster Fund "SKOLKOVO" Vladimir Egorov

"the Main advantage of the new technology is that it can be used in any district hospital. Diagnosis of cancer becomes available away from major medical centers at the first visit to the doctor the patient with suspected malignancy. Already performed technical and laboratory tests of a biochip. During the year, the authors of the project will bring development to clinical trials."

The New biochip is quite compact – about the size of a computer flash drive, a cell can be used to search for the different oncological pathologies, placing inside the biochip different reagents. Moreover, after the diagnosis of the biochip content is processed with dyes and turns into a drug available for study under the microscope. As stated by the author of the project of Svyatoslav Zinovyev

"Before, a cancer diagnosis could put the morphologist. This highly qualified physician who can identify the tumor cells visually using a microscope. But now all over the world are actively developing methods for molecular diagnosis, detection of disease by using chemical reactions. We are the world's first managed to develop a technology for simultaneous and molecular genetic and morphological analysis".
