Nanosensor Speeds Cancer Detection
Detecting the biological signs of cancer in blood samples could be quicker and more sensitive thanks to new nanotechnology developed by U.S. scientists.

The new process involving nanowire sensors could significantly simplify the way blood is tested for diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. In a study published in Nature Nanotechnology, researchers used nanosensors to detect the biomarkers for prostate and breast cancer.
