Biosensor funded for terror war

A wide net that has been cast to create integrated bio- and chemical-agent sensors following terrorist threats on U.S. territory has reeled in a novel handheld biological-warfare agent design. The handheld device, which recently got the green light from the National Science Foundation, is based on a prototype sensor developed at the University of Buffalo. The unit combines an LED with protein-imprinted xerogels with integrated emission sites (Pixies) and a CMOS detector. "The protein-imprinted xerogels with integrated emission sites are nanoscopically porous glasses that are formed by a molecular-imprinting strategy."
