Medical sniffer rat

The rat's whiskers

Medical sniffer rat

Stand aside, sniffer dogs. Here comes a new breed: sniffer rats. In Tanzania, rapid diagnosis is required to limit the spread of TB. Conventional lab tests take hours to identify the bug in human sputum, so doctors are turning to a new, low-tech solution: rats. Super-sensitive rodent noses sniff in high definition and pin-point guilty microbes in seconds. Dr Rat will see you now.
