Title: Highly Sensitive In Vitro Diagnostics from DNA-functionalized Gold Nanoparticles
Description: Researchers at the Northwestern University Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (NU-CCNE) are using nanotechnology to develop highly sensitive diagnostic systems for cancer. The image above, taken with a transmission electron microscope, shows DNA-functionalized gold nanoparticles that have been assembled into a two-dimensional superlattice. DNA-functionalized gold nanoparticles are being used in a variety of high sensitivity biodiagnostic systems developed by the Mirkin group.
