Hydrogel Barcodes Detect Disease Proteins
Medical diagnostic laboratories often test a single sample for several proteins to detect patterns that indicate disease. But current methods limit the number they can detect at one time. Now, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created tiny, easy-to-build, jelly-like particles that each contain tests for multiple proteins (Anal. Chem., DOI: 10.1021/ac1022343). Using multiple particles in combination could help doctors efficiently detect . . .
