Nanomedicine: Itís in Your Blood

Abstract:
(2nd story on the page) John Smith arrives at the doctorís office with a slight fever, a runny nose and a sore throat; the physician suspects a cold. He inserts a small, handheld device the size of a miniature pocket calculator into the patientís mouth like a tongue depressor. The built-in molecular assay receptors sense and report the presence of various kinds of bacteria, providing a three-dimensional, color-coded map of Smithís throat.
