Biosensor for Early Disease Detection

Caption: Professor Stephen Arnold and researchers at Polytechnic Institute of New York University have created an ultra-sensitive biosensor capable of identifying the smallest single virus particles in solution, an advance that may revolutionize early disease detection in a point-of-care setting and shrink test result wait times from weeks to minutes.
