BioCDS could hit No. 1 on doctors' charts
..."Each ring of pits, or 'track,' on the CD could be coated
with a different protein," he said. "Once the surface of a BioCD has been exposed to a blood serum sample - which would not need to be larger than a single drop - you could read the disk with laser technology similar to what is found in conventional ...
