Coming soon - Miriam Breast Cancer Diagnostic
If you have 1 milliliter of blood and about an hour to spare, a 3D-printed, cylindrical device named Miriam can tell you if you have cancer or another kind of disease. This is the wondrous promise offered by a company called Miroculus.
Here’s how it works: A patient gives a small blood sample, which is pipetted into a patented 96-well plate that can detect microRNAs. Each well contains Miroculus’ biochemistry, which closes and shines green only when microRNA is detected in the blood sample.The product is currently under development and was just chosen to be a part of the Google Launchpad Accelerator.
