nanoarrays

A team of Swedish researchers has received $3.3 million to develop a new nanotechnology platform for detecting blood-borne markers in lung and breast cancer.

QuantuMDx will use Scienion's ultra-low-volume liquid handling technologies in its Q-Poc handheld molecular diagnostic device.

The team showed the approach could successfully monitor cytokines in infants after heart surgery, and is involved now in a larger clinical study expanding this research. 

Cambridge Bioscience will be NanoInk's exclusive distributor in the UK and Ireland, NanoInk said this week.

NanoInk has tapped two distributors to sell its nanofabrication platforms in the Asia Pacific region.
