Hawzah News Agency –When cancer is suspected, many people find the experience not only difficult but also frightening, especially when confronted with the invasive measures necessary to make a precise diagnosis. However, due to Dr. Dana Al-Sulaiman, a new technology that can detect cancer without being intrusive is now available.

Dr. Sulaiman was awarded the title of “Innovators Under 35” this week for her latest innovation, a chip that can be implanted on the skin to identify cancer tissues in the human body. Her remarkable finding was motivated only by curiosity. In fact, she was enthralled by the functioning of barcodes found on product packaging and labels. Using a similar approach, the chip was built with a row of dots that can indicate whether or not cancer has been identified.

“It is a small chip made of micro needles covered with a substance that is placed on the skin, and it is able to absorb liquid, and detect cancer biomarkers in an easy and non-invasive way.”

Prior to Dr. Sulaiman’s discovery, cancer detection was often accomplished by the collection of blood samples or biopsy, both of which could occur late in the disease’s progression or yield ambiguous results. However, with the cancer-detecting chip, it is much easier to detect cancer much sooner and without the hassle. Furthermore, the technology is reported to be inexpensive, making it accessible to developing countries.
