Nanoenvironmental Effects Dramatically Influence the Sensitivity of Immunoassays

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

It is possible to improve the sensitivity of immunoassays by several orders of magnitude by exploiting nanoenvironmental effects. This approach can detect trace amounts of compounds and will better illuminate the presence of signal substances in biological systems. Here we describe a method for ultrasensitive immunoassays using 'normal' antibodies (Abs).
