IBM researchers develop new "lab-on-a-chip" technology for detecting cancer signs

According to a report published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology on Monday, IBM researchers have developed a new "lab-on-a-chip" technology which is capable of filtering a person's blood for signs of cancer.  About the new "lab-on-a-chip" technology, IBM researchers said that the technology has the ability to separate biological particles at the nanoscale; and can, thus, potentially help enable physicians to detect cancer and other diseases before symptoms appear.
