DNA Biosensors Using Morpholino Oligos
Advancements in Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) have made devices capable of sensing a particular sequence of DNA in minutes. Applications of these devices include rapid identification of disease, possibly before symptoms arise, and the detection of biological agents. If practical use of such sensors is executed many false diagnoses can be avoided given the device is used for medical purposes and can ensure an efficient response to a biological attack. One of the factors limiting the sensitivity of DNA sensing devices is the high buffer concentration required, which contributes to ...
