Title: Multiplexed Blood Protein Profiling Via Magneto-nano Chip In Vitro Diagnostics
Description: Researchers at the Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence focused on Therapeutic Response (CCNE-TR) from Stanford University are working on developing rapid diagnostic assays based for detection of magnetic nanoparticle labels. Imaged here is a microfluidic magneto-nano chip with 8 by 8 sensors arrays and 8 microfluidic channels. These chips are being developed to monitor protein profiles in blood samples from cancer patients to improve therapeutic effectiveness. The key to this technology is the use of magnetic nanoparticles to label protein molecules which are then accurately counted by the magneto-nano chip.
