So how did you make it cheaper and faster and what's to say that next year we cannot find something even faster -- cheaper than us.
To make it cheaper and faster and make a part of health care.
We took the technology that enabled her phone.
Or your computer semiconductors.
And we made for the first time a ship.
That instead -- -- -- what you take a picture sees chemistry so now we can go right from your DNA.
The digital information that first genome actually took ten years and cost three billion.
Now you can go into a major medical center.
Have you genome sequence and that -- get information back.
And how you're diseases progressing or how to respond to a -- -- that is the issue weekend almost in a way C into the future can we not is that overstating what we confined from this machine.
Right now we can see a little bit into the future but as more and more scientists used this machine.
They'll gather information between your DNA.
And different people's outcome so over the next few years it becomes more and more powerful.
Every time somebody sequence now -- on the individual this has is significance for communities as well you can tell.
-- community by exactly how one particular -- group.
Is likely to -- were likely if you if you have a vaccine or something like that -- absolutely our machines have been used.
For everything from outbreaks like the outbreak last summer of -- -- I was decoded on an early one of these machines.
To water quality so you can heal the world you can fuel the world you can feed the world because everything is based on DNL.
Can this reduce the soaring costs of health care which are breaking our bank here in the United States absolutely the beautiful thing about investing in technology is it is the only thing that can change the cost of health -- When my son was born he was rushed to the newborn intensive care not briefing.
That's why -- developed this technology because I want to know what was going on with my son I wanted to know.
And you just open it up by the way just shows exactly know -- and so now when the somebody's child -- born to have an issue.
You can put their DNA on this trip so weight blood I don't know -- you can take blood can -- saliva you can take biopsy.
You put that put on the tips you put the chip in the machine.
And you press go.
And then that information is and not in a computer.
Or on the Internet how much at this cost to to develop make and life sciences is your parent company of course are they going to mass market this Ted that hospitals around the nation.
That life technologies what -- technology front just introduced a machine it's available worldwide now.
And for orders and will be shipping it around the world first half.
Like I said they can help people in medicine can help people develop through biofuels that can help people in agriculture this machine that could likely save.
Millions of lives that we'll save lives of course first and foremost.
Those health care dollars because my son ran up a 45000 dollar bill -- that newborn intensive care -- if we had known what was happening doctors -- Act to sell insurance companies of people worry are they going to use it for their benefit and then reject people seeing what's in your genome sequence right now.
Insurance companies are very supportive because if you.
Have a cancer 50% of the time you might be OK 50% of time you might need medicine.
Now we can put the dollars on the people that need the medicine looked the other person go home to their family and if I wanted to buy one how much.
Dollars a steel.
A scenario thousand dollars -- do you know John -- great work fantastic work thank you so much for coming in appreciate it thank you -- -- the proper -- ion.
