Each and every year, there are about millions of people who go for their doctors in order to get treated for germ borne diseases- namely cold, fever, and most of the times it is the case, that the doctors cannot point out the exact reason why all this is happening. This is because of the fact that in most of the times it is hard to say what causes the disorder- is it s a virus or a bacteria. Till date, all the standard experimentations have failed to find out the exact fact about these germs and that is the reason why the diagnosis has been quite slow.
Now the good news is that these scientists have helped in developing a much better technology so that a lot more can be known about these germs now. It can not only diagnose one or two, but about thousands of different infections in a jiffy and that too with a bang on accuracy. But the doctors have not been given the permission to use the procedure just as yet- as declared by the US food and drug administration.
In general, people do not need to diagnose the problem, if it is something as trivial as a common cold- since after a few days the body itself fights back and the disease is gone. But now, what if the body has an allergic reaction any anything that it can’t fight off on their own? Then there needs to be an accurate diagnosis o the causal agent based on which the medication can be given.
A doctor will be able to do this diagnosis by taking a blood sample – or a tissue and then culture it in a culture medium to know where the infection is located. Not only that, it can be found what germ is affecting the body in such an adverse way and the perfect medication can be given for the disease or disorder as well. This is a major breakthrough when it comes to the dimension of medical science and has the potential to help not one, but many patients simultaneously.
