Researchers develop microscopic microscopes

Submitted by Sword of Righteous Indignation:

Researchers have managed to produce a microscope the size of a single human cell, which could lead to faster development of new drugs and quicker medical tests.

The biochips also raise the possibility of a micro-laboratory, the size of a credit card, which would be able to perform medical diagnostics, improve patient treatment by reducing the number of hospital visits needed for tests.
