A new startup, Miroculus, is working on a device that could detect cancer from a blood test. It is called Miriam and it is a low-cost and open source device. The startup is made up of a global team of entrepreneurs, microbiologists, and data scientists. The Miroculus device uses a blood sample to find the disease from microRNA. This is amazing, I hope that it can be perfected soon so that there can be earlier detection of cancer!
Great to see more open-source medical equipment being developed; we need to do more coworking like that.
This is awesome, especially about it being cheap. That way tons of health centers can have access.
This could really be ground breaking. I am always amazed at how lucky we can get with treating cancer as long as it is caught before it is too late.
@pixiedust Very true! Hoping lots of good will come out of this :-)
Incredible! This could make huge advancements in cancer research and treatment, I hope they're able to get it working!
