Nanotechnology Breakthroughs and Medicine
This European Commission video looks at how micro and nanotechnologies
are revolutionising medicine.
'Almost invisible' tools are being developed by European researchers to discover
diseases earlier and to treat patients better. The miniaturisation of instruments
to micro and nano dimensions promises to make our future lives safer and cleaner.
A team of European researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical
Technologies Institute near Saarbruecken is using nanotechnology to improve
diagnostic capabilities. In the "Adonis"-project, nano-sized gold particles
are used to detect prostate cancer cells at an early stage.
