Home-testing kit for breast cancer wins Dyson prize
A home-testing kit for breast cancer has won this year's international James Dyson Award. A second award, for sustainability, went to a product that uses waste crops to convert UV light into renewable energy. Ms Benet came up with the idea following her mother's diagnosis of breast cancer. The device performs a chemical analysis of urine samples and sends the results for testing. Ms Benet said: "The Blue Box has the potential to make cancer-screening a part of daily life. It can help to change the way society fights breast cancer to ensure that more women can avoid an advanced diagnosis."
