Gold "Hot Spot" Sensor Catches Tiniest Virus, New York University Study

Published: Aug 30, 2012

A new ultra-sensitive biosensor can identify the smallest single virus particles in solution, which could shrink the wait for test results from weeks to minutes. Stephen Arnold, of the Othmer-Jacobs Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and researchers from New York University-Poly’s MicroParticle PhotoPhysics Laboratory for BioPhotonics (MP3L) report their findings in the most recent issue of Applied Physics Letters.
