Henrik Zetterberg discusses the use of ultrasensitive biomarker assays from Quanterix for Alzheimer’s research
Target Confinement in Small Reaction Volumes Using Microfluidic Technologies: A Smart Approach for Single-Entity Detection and Analysis
Over the last decades, the study of cells, nucleic acid molecules, and proteins has evolved from ensemble measurements to so-called single-entity studies. The latter offers huge benefits, not only as biological research tools to examine heterogeneities among individual entities within a population,…
Single Molecule Array Ultra-Sensitive Cytokine Assays in EDTA Plasma Are Robust and Clinically Feasible
The objective of this study was to clinically validate a new ultra-sensitive immunoassay platform with EDTA plasma patient specimens for eventual translation as a blood-based biomarker in immuno-oncology.
Sensitivity of assays for detection of low abundance proteins have been improved by orders of magnitude based on unique properties of nanomaterials.
Nanomaterials are beginning to play an important role in the next generation of immunological assays and biosensors, with potential impacts both in research and clinical practice. In this brief review, we highlight two areas in which nanomaterials are already making new and important contributions i…
