Bioassays work on paper

Abstract:
New analytical techniques with ever smaller volumes, multiple functionalities, and the ability to run masses of assays in parallel, tend to rely on ever more expensive materials and equipment. Researchers at Harvard, US have now bucked this trend by developing a bioassay tool that can be printed on paper.

Chemistry professor George Whitesides, famous for his numerous nanotech inventions including soft lithography, developed the printing technique. His group at Harvard used commercially available photoresist in place of ink. Photoresist is an insulating substance that polymerises under UV light and is routinely used in chip fabrication.
