TINY, a quick cancer detection device
WASHINGTON February 4 is celebrating World Cancer Day worldwide. The disease still remains a leading cause of death worldwide. Last year, around 2 million new cases of cancer were reported worldwide, with more than six million people suffering from it. But now cancer prevention is making progress, and the number of cancer deaths has been declining for decades, and new technology is making early diagnosis easier. Although cancer is still one of the leading causes of death worldwide, the chances of recovering patients from this early diagnosis are increasing significantly. But in areas where no properly trained pathologists are available Early diagnosis of this disease can be difficult. These days a new device called TINY is being tested in Uganda. That can change the situation. Agri Sameer, a Ugandan disease prevention team, is involved in the machine testing team. He says that when someone comes to us whose skin may be showing signs of cancer, We take a tissue, DNA, and put it into the machine to test whether we can further amplify this viral “DNA”. This is the method that tells us the extent to which a person has become a target of cancer and whether or not he is cancerous. Detects cancerous tissue in just a few hours instead of days.
