Researchers in the UK are developing a self-diagnosis system for sexually transmitted infections, which will analyze a urine sample and send the results to a mobile phone screen or computer display (Image: Wiki Commons)
A consortium of scientists has been formed to try and stem the rise of sexually transmitted diseases (or infections as they are now called) that's said to be reaching epidemic proportions in the UK. As early diagnosis and treatment is essential in such matters, the team is creating a self-diagnosis system where results can quickly be displayed on a mobile phone or computer screen. The system could even automatically make an appointment at a clinic or direct the unfortunate sufferer to the nearest pharmacy, where treatment would be waiting.
