Arkansas: A company headquartered at Springdale, Arkansas has invented a device which can not only detect the presence of cancer disease in the human body but also is twice as accurate as a mammogram.

Omid Moghaham, CEO of the company Ascendant DX affirmed that the device is fast and provides results within 20-30 minutes. This tiny apparatus is designed to read the biomarks present in tears and detect cancer.

The firm believes that the device will be a huge success in medical discipline due to its cost, which is not more than ten dollars.
