Experts Develop USB Sticks for HIV Test

Britain based scientists developed a type of HIV test which can be done using a USB stick that is quite fast and gives us an accurate reading of the amount of virus present in the individual’s blood. The device has been created at Imperial College of London and it just uses a drop of blood that uses an electric signal to read it and fetch the result. The scientists revealed that the research is in early stages and the virus levels can't be detected by routine HIV tests, which can only show whether or not a person has the virus.
