Quote of the day

People say we're running out of energy. That's only true if we stick with these old 19th century technologies. We are awash in energy from sunlight.

Carbon nanotube transistors orders of magnitude better at spotting cancer

RATE THIS! +9
Posted in Science on 21st Feb, 2013 10:52 PM by AlexMuller

Mitchell Lerner at the University of Pennsylvania and associates have revealed a technique that uses an array of carbon nanotube transistors on a silicon chip to detect a biomarker of prostate cancer known as osteopontin (OPN), The Physics arXiv Blog reports.

 

The transistor can detect OPN at concentrations of 1 picogram per milliliter — a concentration three orders of magnitude weaker than ELISA can manage. ELISA is the state of the art technique for spotting OPN.

 

The carbon nanotube transistors can be made sensitive to other diseases, including Lyme disease and Salmonella.
