A Canadian university has developed a new technology that may help identify people facing the risk of breast cancer, enabling them to take early preventive measures

The technology, developed by the University of Toronto in collaboration with the Canadian Institute of Health Research and the Canadian Cancer Society, could provide a breakthrough for patients in India where one out of every 22 women is diagnosed with breast cancer.

Under the technique, the researchers analysed tiny samples of blood and breast tissue obtained from the patients at risk using a device which can fit into a human palm.

"We developed methods to move droplets of different kinds of reagents, a substance consumed during a chemical reaction, to extract hormones and purify them? all on a device that can fit into the palm of a hand.
