Atomic Microscope Spots Viruses

Abstract:
Researchers from BioForce Nanosciences Inc., Iowa State University, and Des Moines University have combined an atomic force microscope with a method of capturing virus particles to produce a tool that rapidly detects viruses. The atomic force microscopy immunocapture assay consists of a chip, dubbed the ViriChip, that contains antibody molecules used to selectively capture viruses. An atomic force microscope is then used to analyze what has been trapped.
