University of Bari, Italy, and his colleagues used a commercial nanoarray-based electronic "nose" to discriminate between the breath of patients with non-small cell lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
The zoom-in images (150nm x 150nm scale) on the right clearly show the barcode (white dots) that identifies the nanoarray and the RNA hybridization signal on the DNA nanoarray (white bar).
"In this work, we developed a water soluble nanoarray that can take advantage of the DNA self-assembling process and also have benefits that the macroscopic DNA microchip arrays do not have," said Yan.
