The Biotechnology research center in the Algerian city of Constantine has initiated a production of biometric chips for cancer detection, a breakthrough for the African nation.
Cancer diagnosis has improved drastically by recent technological advancements in nanoscience and material design.
Algerian labs are reportedly the first in Africa in this category. The center is one of the 90 laboratories in the world that managed to achieve this kind of medical technology.
Initially, similar chips were imported costing up to 500 euros per unit.
