A new diagnosis for Cancer cells


Dana Al-Sulaiman, a recent postdoc with MIT’s Ibn Khaldun Fellowship for Saudi Arabian

Women have developed a cheap, diagnostic test for cancer. The currently used techniques for

cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring are either detecting cancer in late stages or shall be


inaccurate according to the researcher. In contrast to this, the newly developed barcode-inspired

the method uses available materials to translate the results of liquid samples, such as urine or blood, into

simple-to-read patterns. On a recently delivered Zoom webinar, Al-Sulaiman demonstrated how a

standard microscope can be configured and designed to fabricate such a diagnostic test. The


materials used for creating these tests include affordable and biocompatible polymers.
