Genetic risk lab test utilises nanotechnology

Abstract:
The Optonanogen project, with support from the EU, aims to develop a system, which detect mutations of the BRCA1 gene responsible for between 2.5 and 5 per cent of the incidences of breast cancer in women. The final device will be roughly the size of a human hand, allowing it to be used in doctors' surgeries to determine the genetic predisposition of a patient to certain diseases in a matter of minutes.
