Inland taipan snake native to Australia and the eastern brown long been known as the snake could be deadliest in the world . Because it can or reptile venom can cause the victim's blood curdle .
Researchers at the University of Queensland have pioneered ways to use this venom to speed up the process of testing the blood of patients who have been given an anti - coagulant .
Dr. Goce Dimenski said tube impregnated with snake venom was found to produce results more quickly and more accurately .
" From a clinical perspective , the results of the blood tests will be read in a shorter period of time , " he said recently.
" These findings could potentially reduce the time patients stay in the hospital , improve reading test results and may ultimately increase the odds of saving the lives of patients . "
Minister for Science and Innovation Queensland , Ian Walker said the discovery is good news for patients .
" It will make a blood test test time to 40 minutes to 10 minutes shorter , " he said .
In some cases it is an extra minute can make a difference .
So far, only a blood test using anti - coagulant that can damage the blood test .
If not accurate , the patient can be given the wrong dose of medicine , and causing trouble besides the patient also suffers an additional cost of having to do a re-test.
Dr. . Dimeski say this problem does not arise in their collection tubes that have been given to the two snakes .
He said blood clots that occur rapidly , can produce a quality serum samples in the shortest possible time for pathology tests .
Currently negotiations are ongoing with a number of potential commercial partners , which is expected to require billions of tubes that have been given the deadly venom .

While researchers say there is no shortage of supply could both snake venom from the Australian native .
