Ordinary CD players to monitor our health?

An inexpensive way to monitor health on the go ...

"Many of us, at least in developed countries, have CD players rusting in our homes. So why not turning them into something useful?A very short note by the American Chemical Society (ACS) says that Spanish researchers have adapted this now venerable technology into home health monitoring systems. This means that CD technology could be used for tests ranging from the measurement of environmental toxins to at-home disease diagnosis and even laboratory-based testing. The researchers don't give any clues about the availability of such a product, but I think they've got a brilliant idea.

... "In summary, the herein developed methodology is sensitive, versatile, portable, low cost, and easy to operate and could become a very advantageous system for a simultaneous multiresidue and real-time high-throughput technique of general application in molecular recognition-based biochemical methods at the point of need for home health monitoring or in situ analysis."    (Continued via Roland Piquepaille's Technology Trends)    [Ergonomics Resources]
