Imec Helps Detect Cancer with Asymmetric Nanostructures Research

Imec researchers have created biosensors based on nanostructure geometries that increase sensitivity. The biosensors can detect extremely low concentrations of specific disease markers. According to imec, this paves the way to early diagnostics of cancer by detecting low densities of cancer markers in human blood samples. Some of the research results were achieved in collaboration with the Catholic University of Leuven (Leuven, Belgium), Imperial College (London, UK) and Rice University (Houston, Texas).
