A group of researchers from the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center has invented an economical and non-invasive technology to detect the presence of Cancerous cells as well as other life threatening diseases like Ebola.

This alternative approach towards medical technology detects bio-markers of diseases by analyzing nucleic acids.

In this research, the team projected that the new technology could distinguish certain nucleic acids from other variants.

Finally, it was verified after testing the microRNA (mi-R155), which gives information about Cancer. 

The future goal of their work includes expanding the method in testing blood, excreta and urine to extract useful information regarding the particular disease.
