Scientists Across Europe Race to the Cure for Cancer Using Nanotechnology

Med & Tech

What if it were possible to combine the technological capabilities of an entire laboratory on one single chip? Scientists all across Europe may be getting close. Scientists at the Centre Nacional de Microelectronica have developed the Biofinger, a microchip that uses antibody binding proteins to bind antibodies and move the device to certain angles to allow scientists to identify specific proteins. The Adonis Project uses gold nanoparticles to identify prostate cancer. These tools will deliver faster, more efficient mechanisms for the early identification of cancer.
