Researchers are working to better detect disease with nanotechnology.
Diseases can be detected before a patient has any noticeable symptoms.
A patient has a better chance of beating a disease if treatment starts very early in the disease's progression.
The GreeneChip tests for many different diseases at the same time using genetic material from a pathogen "library" and a sample from the patient.
