Mobile phones can be used to secure human body by detecting potentially deadly viruses. Researchers have devised a simple, portable and inexpensive way to detect norovirus levels – a highly contagious virus that can cause vomiting and diarrhea – in water versus $ 50 Only.

“Progress in rapid monitoring of human body viruses in water is essential to protecting public health, on local and global diseases” said study author Professor Kelly Reynolds of the University of Arizona in the United States.

Reynolds added: “The devices used to detect viruses exist, but usually require a laboratory containing a set of microscopes, lasers and spectrum that can cost thousands of pounds,” while it is the most expensive element in the entire device costs less than 40 pounds ($ 50). It’s easy to use, you don’t have to be a scientist or engineer to operate the device”.

The team now hopes to develop ways to detect norovirus infections in human body even earlier and expand their smartphone monitoring platform to detect other risks, such as chemicals that can cause cancer.
