Diving into biomarkers

Researchers from Roche, IBM Corp. and two academic labs have developed a cantilever array technology that ultimately could be simpler, cheaper and faster for diagnostic detection of human biomarkers than microarrays. Data recently published in Nature Nanotechnologyshow the technique can detect picomolar quantities of human mRNA biomarker transcripts, which is about the same limit of sensitivity
