Ebola Update: Scientists Create Machine To Test For Virus In 30 Minutes

Scientists at the Boston University have created a new gadget that can reportedly detect Ebola in blood samples within 30 minutes.
The radical new sensor is said to be the size of a shoe box and can also be operated by anyone.
The inventors are seeking to have the machine shipped to West Africa to help efforts against the spread of Ebola.
The gadget is said to work by reflecting light, and has reportedly been shown to be effective in spotting the Ebola virus.
Researchers say that a major challenge in the fight against Ebola is the cost and difficulty of diagnosing the disease.
Ebola has killed almost 5000 people in West Africa with Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea being the worst hit.
