    working with chips that could potentially diagnose patients who are suffering a heart attack in the emergency room. Currently treating patients in the emergency room is one of the highest costs that we have in the healthcare system. And particularly, heart attacks , because heart disease is the number one killer of Americans. Because of that, it accounts for a large portion of our healthcare
    get is they die. >> The critical thing to recognise in a heart attack is if we're able to culprit vessel. Within an hour we salvaged a part muscle and as the patient's survival is significantly improved. >> 'Kay here's, here's the result from the analysis of a sample collected from the chins, chest pain patient recruited at the Houston VA Hospital, which was further. Validated as being a heart attack victim. As you can see her, the lab-on-a-chip system that we have developed here in the [UNKNOWN] lab is capable of easily diagnosing this heart attack case by the elevation in the levels of the biomarker cardiac troponin I. The gold standard bio market for the diagnosis of heart attack . If you compare the levels of the character 29 in these same nine beats when the same biomarket is evaluated from a sample collected from a noncase, a patient, a chest pain patient that was, found to be not a heart attack . You can actually see the levels of cardiac [UNKNOWN] to be significantly reduced. The potential implications of developing these new bio nanochips
