Researchers from the University of Notre Dame and the University of Florida have developed a sensor that could diagnose a heart attack in less than 30 minutes, according to a study published in Lab on a Chip.

Specialists from the University of Florida assisted with the design and development of the solution. Colleagues have already submitted a patent application for their sensor; they are now considering launching a new startup company that could one day sell it to the public.
