What do you buy the alcoholic who has everything? No, not a new liver. But the next best thing would be a Korean cellphone that [magically] monitors your liver enzymes and knows when to call your doctor. We’ll wait for the next generation model that will actually start the admission order for us.
Telecoms Korea has an attention grabbing post today about a mobile phone which can diagnose liver conditions.
“The Bionano Research Team of the Korea Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology developed a bio sensor to measure GOT (Glutamine Oxaloacetic Transaminase) and GPT (Glutamine Pyruvic Transaminase) in blood and linked the sensor to a mobile phone. The result can also be transmitted to hospitals, said the research team.”
