Nano-Bio-Chip For Diagnosing Heart Attacks Begins Human Trials

Once again, a news story surfaces that reads like science fiction.

This is really amazing. Researchers in Houston are using a Nano-Bio-Chip to detect cardiac enzymes in the saliva of heart attack victims. Instead of waiting for a blood test, this new test can yield bedside results. It will be trialled over the next 2 years and its diagnostic accuracy will be compared with standard blood testing.
