Detecting cancer in general is an important process to cut out the previous modes of doing so. But a new nanotechnological process for cancer detection could make diagnosis lung cancer as simple as breathing into a tube.
Researchers created a silicon gold circuit by embedding gold nanoparticles in a silicon wafer. The air blown from 40 cancer patients and 50 people with healthy lungs enabled them to track four chemicals that healthy lungs do not have: decane, trimethylbenzene, ethylbenzene, and heptanol. When the chemicals bind to the organic coat on the nanowires, they change the circuit's electrical resistance in a predictable way.
If successful with some tweaking here and there, this device could be very useful for detecting lung cancer. And very well enable early stage detection. Mad science!
As companies in the technology sector know how important security is for their users. That's why they update their systems with better functions so that nobody can easily access their data. In sight are the fingerprint sensors or the face recognition cameras. But there is nothing wrong with using traditional user and password methods. Read more
Whether you’re just getting started with digital marketing or you’ve been at it for a while, it’s easy to become engrossed in the day-to-day tasks without taking the time to look at the overall picture. The best analogy here is…swimming! If you swim with your head in the water and don’t look up every once in a while, it’s not difficult to end up away off in the wrong direction. It’s the same with your digital marketing strategy, and there are plenty of other reasons why you’ll want to make sure you have one in place. Read more
