Scientists Develop Cheap, Highly Sensitive and Accurate Test for Biomarkers

Scientists at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University and Boston Childrens Hospital have developed a cheap, sensitive, and highly accurate way of detecting protein biomarkers. The technology may very well revolutionize diagnostics, disease monitoring, and help stop the spread of infectious pathogens. The nanoswitch-linked immunosorbent assay (NLISA) has the potential to be as simple to
