Modified Camera To Catch Cancer Cells
We probably all know a loved one or friend who has suffered from some kind of cancer, and billions are spent to try to find both cures and better early detection methods. Most cancers have a better survival rate if they are caught early. One type of detection for breast cancer uses a process call flow cytometry, which uses a special high-speed camera process to analyze blood cells in real time. Researchers art UCLA have come up with a significant improvement to this technique that promises 100 times faster performance than existing analyzers.
