Single Proteins Detected with Nanopores

Urs Staufer, professor at SAMLAB, which is part of the Institute of Microtechnology at the University of Neuchatel, explained the possible future applications of nanopores used for protein detection: "There is a wide range of protein based assays in the market. One could perform immunoassays to detect e.g. hormone disturbances that are known to indicate everything from pregnancy to severe state of disease. The immunoassay market for instruments and reagents alone is 5 billion Euros per year."
