Scientists have developed a handheld device that can rapidly detect diseases such as breast cancer and MRSA.

The device, known as CliniHub, has four ports that contain a chemical assay designed to react to certain antibodies and diseases.

Urine, saliva or blood samples inserted into one of the ports are analysed, and the scan results are displayed on a screen.

Researchers say that the device could be used to detect up to 20 ailments in the future.

CliniHub has been developed by Cambridge Consultants in collaboration with US-based XenBio Fluidics.
