    NYT: Using less than a drop of blood, a new test can reveal nearly every virus a person has ever been exposed to, scientists reported on Thursday. The test, which is still experimental, can be performed for as little as $25 and could become an important research tool for tracking patterns of disease in various populations, helping scientists compare the old and the young, or people in different parts of the world.

    it would be interesting to know possible exposure to viral situations for say:
    kindergarten teacher
    hospital nurse
    checkout clerk at a large retail store.
