Japanese researchers have recently developed a kind of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) chips, which can simultaneously detect the anthrax and other 20 kinds of pathogens.

According to the nikkei business daily reported Thursday, new DNA chips by Toshiba, the police police science institute, and with wide livestock and university jointly developed. By the chip technology has been in the field of medical transformed into the practical phase of DNA testing technology, just put a small amount of powder or liquid to suspicious chip that can be completed in a few hours to as many as 20 kinds of pathogen detection.

It is reported that the existing detection methods need to analyze the pathogen in the laboratory, testing need to spend a few days time, a variety of pathogens is not suitable for at the airport and other public places to prevent terrorist attacks in the biological tests.
