Title:  Quantitative Large Area Binding Sensor For Detecting Biomarkers

 

Invention:  Researchers at the University of Arizona have developed a lens-free holographic microscope (LFHM) for observing and quantifying target biomarkers in a solution, including targets with a large dynamic range in concentration.  LFHM can be used to detect microscale targets (e.g., bacteria and cells) and nanoscale targets (e.g., viruses, DNA strands, and cancer biomarkers).

 

Advantages:

*  can image a large range of target sizes

*  accommodates a large dynamic range in concentration

*  has a large field of view

 

Applications:

*  cancer biomarker detection
