Sci-fi device could give UK's elite athletes killer edge

Abstract:
It sounds like something out of science fiction, but the UK's top athletes will soon be using nanotechnology as they seek that tiny fraction of advantage which can be the difference between glory and failure at London 2012.

A new hand-held medical device which measures biomarkers - proteins which reveal details about the condition of a body - is to be trialled by UK Sport to improve training regimes.

The device uses nanotechnology to provide a quick, full diagnosis from a single small sample such as blood, urine or saliva.
