Researchers from the Technion's faculties of Computer Science and Biology have
developed a new method for rapid and inexpensive analysis of the chemical
composition of blood samples, which may accelerate early diagnosis of diseases.
The first application to be tested in the near future is early detection of
various cancerous tumors based on blood tests.
The innovative technology, published in the scientific journal
, was developed by researchers Prof. Tomer Shlomi and doctoral
students Shoval Lagziel [CS] and Boris Sarvin, it is based on a unique combination of
mass spectrometer and computational methods developed by the research group.
