Illuminating Influenza

The fluDOC uses genetically modified bioluminescent bacteria to detect traces of the influenza virus in humans. This is done using a tool collecting saliva and liquid capsules of these bacteria. The bacteria are specially modified to become sensitive to influenza, as they stop emitting their continuous flow of bioluminescence upon infection, ultimately visualizing within 15 minutes the presence of influenza among humans. In short: it allows you to illuminate your influenza.
