Ultra-sensitive Detection of Protein and DNA Molecules at Pittcon 2013
This video provides a detailed presentation on high sensitivity analysis using single molecule arrays at Pittcon 2013. High sensitivity can be realized when digital measurements are based on counting single molecules since the signals where a molecule is present can be quickly differentiated from the signals where a molecule is absent.
This technique has been used to identify proteins and nucleic acids at extremely low concentrations. In fact, proteins can be detected at concentrations over thousand times lower than ELISAs, thus promoting unparalleled diagnostic capabilities.
