Toshiba talked about a development that can detect 13 types of cancer-based on an analysis of just one drop of blood. Diagnostic accuracy reaches 99%.

The technology and the diagnostic method built on it were developed jointly with the Research Institute of the National Cancer Center and the Tokyo Medical University. Partners expect to conduct full-scale trials and begin commercialization next year. The widespread availability of the method is expected within "several years."

The method is based on the study of the types and concentration of micro RNA molecules secreted into the blood by cancer cells. Compared to other methods, it provides higher accuracy, is faster and cheaper. It can be used to detect cancer of the stomach, oesophagus, lungs, liver, bile ducts, pancreas, intestines, ovaries, prostate, bladder and breast, as well as sarcoma and glioma.



Toshiba has developed a chip and a small device that can diagnose in less than two hours. Its cost does not exceed 180 dollars.
