UK adopts military technology adapted to diagnose chlamydia:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK treasury is giving the Porton Down branch of the Department of Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and the Department of Health £4.6m ($6.6m) to provide hospital labs and clinics with a chlamydia screening device that Dstl has created by adapting existing military technology. The technology, initially designed to track biological warfare agents, will enable the NHS to obtain accurate results within 40 minutes compared with the previous standard of a fortnight, thus saving the NHS "millions", claims Dstl. Chlamydia affects 10% of women aged between 16 and 24.
