Intel chip gear aims to detect disease

The chipmaker Intel and the Seattle-based research organization will construct a device, called a Raman Bioanalyzer System, that may be able, ideally, to detect chemical anomalies in individual cells and thereby be used to flag diseases in their early stages.

"The instrument beams lasers onto tiny medical samples, such as blood serum, to create images that reveal the chemical structure of molecules,"Andrew Berlin, lead researcher of Intel's Precision Biology program, said in a statement. "The goal is to determine if this technology, previously used to detect microscopic imperfections on silicon chips, can also detect subtle traces of disease."
