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!
There’s a spreadsheet program that comes with the Mac Operational System which is called Apple Numbers. Actually, it’s a part of Apple’s iWork suite. This program crates files with data organized into rows and columns and may as well be provided with some graphs, tables, images and formulas. Rows are usually labeled with numbers while columns are labeled using letters. An Individual sell can be determined by a unique combination of both. Read more
