Researchers made ultra-sensitive cancer detector from 2D materials

New range of possibilities in the field of biosensing

24-Nov-2021

Cells can produce unique electrical signals. These signals can be linked to various cancers, such as the breast, lung, liver, brain, pancreas and prostate cancers, meaning that they can be used as indicators for early cancer diagnosis. Thus, using electrical signals as indicators and targets for ...
