New Technology - Nanochannel/Nanoparticle Based Device for Cancer Biomarker Detection

ICN researchers demonstrate a novel nanochannel/nanoparticle-based filtering and sensing platform for direct detection of a cancer biomarker in blood

Researchers of the Nanobioelectronics & Biosensors Group at the Catalan Institute of Nanotechnology (ICN), Barcelona have demonstrated the efficiency of a device based on nanochannels that through the use of gold nanoparticles as channel blockers can be useful for the detection of cancer biomarkers in whole blood samples.
