Single Molecule Arrays for Analyzing Tumor Cells
This video shows Professor David Walt from Tufts University. He describes about fiber-optic DNA biosensor microarrays that are used for cancer studies. Simoa stands for Single Molecule Array Technology. The idea is to capture molecules into very tiny microarrays. The technique helps take many individual cells and count the number of molecules present in these individual cells. Simoa technology helps detect thousands of single protein molecules simultaneously. This technique can be applied in tumor biopsy where we can analyze individual tumor cells and perform high resolution diagnostics.
