A team of researchers has developed a nanophotonic microfluidic sensor, which will help in the detection, monitoring and treatment of cancer.
According to the study published in the journal Optics Letters, the device can detect dissolved gases and liquids at low concentration with a high degree of accuracy.
Lab on a Chip is a small sensor device capable of performing complex biochemical analyses. It is considered the best way to detect cancer.
Researcher Gregory Goltsman of HSE University in Moscow said that this is an important step towards developing a lab-on-a-chip device.
Not only can it do blood tests, but it can also detect cancer at an early stage through biomarkers present in the patient’s blood.
