Finally, the development of equipment for DNA testing are becoming increasingly accessible, and there are even kids building their own genetic sequencing machines at home using new methods. And a breakthrough in this direction was a chip created by Panasonic in partnership with IMEC - Belgium-based research institution - which promises to perform genetic analyzes in just one hour.

This is the chip we've actually developed. As you can see, it's less than half the size of a business card. It contains everything needed for testing DNA. Once a drop of blood is inserted, the chip completes the entire process, up to SNP detection.

According to the DigInfo TV, the new device promises to automate all stages of the process of obtaining the genetic information of a particular individual, identifying possible mutations that can result in the onset of illness and future health problems.

This device may facilitate the early detection of diseases and the development of individualized treatments.

To do this, you just need a drop of blood on the chip so that the equipment performs PCR - or polymerase chain reaction - quickly, allowing doctors and specialists can detect anomalies and decide on the best treatment for each case and even develop new types of drugs and therapies.
