Une universite veut reutiliser un equipement de beagle 2 pour detecter
la turberculose (TB) dans les pays sous developpés.
A device developed for a mission to Mars could help spot signs of life closer to home - by spotting the bacterium that causes TB.
The Open University and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine project will use a tiny detection kit made for the Beagle 2 project.
The gas chromatograph mass spectrometer (GC-MS) can pick out the unique chemical fingerprint of TB.
An expert hoped it would boost the poor diagnosis rate in developing countries.
