CHENNAI: A cross-section of physicians was on Sunday provided the low-down on a new diagnostic tool in screening for disease of major organs of the human body. The demonstration of the MEDEX Test was organised as a prelude to its launch in India.
“Its principal use is in screening patients for early indications of a disease,” said Johel Neiron, CEO of the U.K.-based MEDEX Test Global. Using a graded assessment of the skin’s electrical conductivity and resistance, the device is able to provide clinical clues on the sites of the body where an abnormal change needs to be further investigated. MEDEX Test, which has been issued licences for clinical application in various countries, including the U.S., measures cellular changes at dermal-visceral zones to evaluate disease.
