Sensitive sensor-packed microchip and new analytical model could test 100,000 protein–drug interactions in minutes

By / April 22, 2011

A microchip with a nanosensor array (orange squares) is shown with a different protein (various colors) attached to each sensor. Four proteins of a potential medication (blue Y-shapes), with magnetic nanotags attached (grey spheres), have been added. One medication protein is shown binding with a protein on a nanosensor.
