A Home Kit For Early Detection Of Killer Diseases
A home diagnostic kit to detect critical illnesses like cancer, heart disease and diabetes is being developed by a team of scientists. About 60 researchers are working on the project at Biomedical Diagnostics Institute at Dublin City University. This research has a funding of €22.5m.

This potentially life-saving device is designed to spot the early telltale signs of these killer diseases.

At the launching function, Mr Ahern stated that,'This research aims to deliver the science and technology that will drive a revolution in health management.' Here are some other quotes from his statement, 'this instrument could save many lives by early detection, reduce the number of hospital admissions and stays and also develop the country's economy growth.'

'The BDI is focusing on developing accurate and reliable devices suitable for self test, home use, that will enable people to take control over the management of their own health.

'These devices will enable detection of life-threatening events long before a critical stage is reached, and help chronic diseases to be controlled more effectively.

'This will reduce hospital stays and save lives.'
