Early diagnosis of illness is an important objective of modern medicine. Often, diagnosis begins with a patient’s symptoms, however this is not ideal. Onset of a disease or other illness may occur long before any major symptoms begin to manifest, hence more reliable early detection tools are an important focus of current research. Scientists at the University of Copenhagen Nano-Science Center believe they have developed an effective technique for holding/analyzing biomarkers in the body, typically proteins, which may indicate the development of an illness prior to the onset of symptoms. Currently, this method of diagnosis is being employed in some places, however, presently available technology limits the number of proteins that can be effectively analyzed simultaneously.
