Portable ice test
RESEARCHERS in Korea have developed a wireless sensor and a smartphone app that can detect the presence of amphetamines in human urine in just seconds.
The device is also portable enough to be worn as a bracelet, has unprecedented sensitivity for amphetamines with low risk for false-positive results, and costs about $50 to produce.
The inventors said the system does away with the need for expensive equipment that requires long analysis time and highly skilled technicians to operate.
Scientists presented their proof-of-concept design last week in the journal Chem - CLICK HERE ͘
