Quantum dots speed analysis of cellular cancer markers

Abstract:
In attempt to identify biological markers, or biomarkers, that can signal the presence of cancer and help oncologists determine the best course of therapy when cancer is present, teams of investigators are scouring stored tissue samples obtained from thousands of cancer patients. Such studies are laborious and suffer from limited sensitivity, making it difficult to quantify rare biomarkers and develop data that might reveal a correlation among specific patterns of protein expression and specific types of cancer.
