Biomarkers biosensor-hand-image-lab

Researchers have designed a non-invasive and inexpensive chip-based optical biosensor with increased sensitivity to detect the presence and progression of cancerous tumors. The cancer protein biomarker S100A4 was detected at concentrations of 300 picomolar in a synthetic urine sample.

News biomarker-alzheimers-brain

Researchers have analyzed flotillin levels in samples from individuals with and without Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and determined that serum flotillin levels are negatively associated with brain amyloid deposition. Flotillin could serve as a biomarker to estimate brain amyloid deposition, potentially aiding the early diagnosis of AD.
