SUST invents low-cost  cancer-detecting tech

A team of researchers from Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST) has invented a low-cost technology to detect cancer through analyzing blood samples.

The team, led by Prof Dr Yasmeen Haque of SUST Physics department, invented the technology by researching nonlinear optics under the Higher Education Quality Enhancement Project (HEQEP).

Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid disclosed the epoch-making invention at a press conference at the International Mother Language Institute in the city. "It's completely a new technology and a great success of Bangladesh in the field of education research. It'll be used for the welfare of all," he said.

The new technology will test the blood samples in a completely new method to predict the possibility of cancer in a very short time and at a very low cost, Nahid said.  

The 'Detection of Biomarker Using Nonlinear' project was launched in March 2016 under HEQEP. As part of the project, a nonlinear bio-optics research laboratory was established at the SUST Physics department.
