A new Swedish invention tracking HIV

Saturday, 11 June 2011
Swedish researchers have developed new, highly sensitive measuring equipment, among other things can provide quick answer if someone is infected with HIV. This challenges the model used today which means that one may have to wait for months for test results.


“It means that potentially it can reduce the spread and also put patients on therapy early on, "said Martin Hedstrom, PhD in biotechnology, to radio Sweden.

The device can also detect toxins and viruses in liquids and can therefore be used to test drinking water and detect bioterrorism.
