Conservative gamblers may not want to bet the farm just yet, but two-dimensional phosphorus may soon be coming to bovine health care. Satish K. Tuteja and Suresh Neethirajan of the University of Guelph have shown that 2-D sheets of phosphorus, dubbed phosphorene, can be functionalized and used to quickly and inexpensively measure bovine haptoglobin levels (Nanotechnology 2018, DOI: 10.1088/1361-6528/aaab15).
