Researchers from the southeastern Australian state of Victoria have developed a new test for meningococcal disease, which they say is the fastest in the world.
Current tests for the illness take up to two days, but meningococcal can kill patients within twelve hours.
The new test uses tiny gold particles, attached to antibodies, that bind to the surface of the meningococcal bacteria.
Nanotechnology Victoria's Doctor Jeanette Pritchard says the test takes just fifteen minutes.
