Scientists at the University of Southampton in the UK are developing system that can detect sexually transmitted infections (STIs) within 15 minutes.

The system will use short, fluorescently labelled DNA sequences, called HyBeacons, which are capable of identifying sections of DNA sequence with a genetic variation, to detect the presence of an STI.

The Clinic-based Infection Examination through Nucleic acid Technologies (Client) detection system is being developed by the university in collaboration with LGC and OptiGene.
