Invented a ‘medical sticker’ to detect disease by sticking to the skin
American scientists have invented a sticker with very thin and extremely short needles that can be detected by sticking it on the skin to detect any disease.
The sticker was invented by experts at the Washington University School of Medicine and is disposable, meaning it becomes unusable once used.
To detect the disease, the sticker is placed on the skin and pressed slightly, causing its tiny needles to penetrate slightly into the skin and absorb a very small amount of body fluid just below the skin’s surface. Are
This body fluid is full of substances that are directly related to human health or disease.
In addition to biochemicals, they also contain substances called biomarkers that directly address a variety of disease and health conditions.
The internal system of the sticker analyzes these substances and determines the presence or absence of any disease in the person concerned.
Dr. Shrikanth Sangmanini, the study’s lead author and lead author of the study, says the sticker is 800 times more sensitive than any existing biomarker test, and is much simpler, safer, easier and less expensive.
This sticker can be used to diagnose diseases, especially in remote and backward areas where there is no modern medical laboratory and the people living there cannot afford expensive medical tests.
In its current state, the first prototype of the sticker has been developed, which will enable effective and authoritative diagnosis of many diseases simultaneously, as well as low-cost industrial production. Further research of this nature may take a few more years.
