Understanding how proteins interact within the human body is something that has historically taken a lot of time, so this research is something of a breakthrough in terms of getting results in at very high speeds.

Diagnosing diseases like Lupus used to be very hard, sometimes taking years, but Rattner said this new system allows doctors to take blood samples and have results back "literally in a matter of minutes."
