A new device that can diagnose illnesses quickly – a bit like Baymax from the movie Big Hero 6 – is being developed in the USA.

At the moment, finding out what illness a patient has can be difficult and can often take weeks. It can be a gruelling experience for patients who may have to endure lots of tests.

The makers of Gene Radar say their device can diagnose several illnesses very quickly, using just a drop of blood or even saliva.

They say it could be able to tell if somebody has caught a virus like Ebola, even before they show any actual symptoms

Now it’s up to officials in the USA to decide if the device can be approved for use. The Gene Radar is competing against other companies who are also working on quicker and more accurate tests for viruses like Ebola.

If any of them succeed, it could pave the way for fast, mobile healthcare devices.
