Unfortunately, rapid tests are inaccurate for analyte concentrations, whereas more sophisticated techniques are expensive and time-consuming.
Nanostructured surfaces offer better sensitivity, but refined computational techniques are required to unlock the full potential in accurate and precise detection. We have created NanoLoci, an image analysis software, which can deliver consistent, optimized results for all end-users. By enabling non-expert users to harness the power of computational techniques and combining them with cutting-edge nanowire technology, lower concentrations of disease markers can be detected. With this technology, nanowire biosensors can be taken to the next level, making them accessible and relevant for potential applications in early and affordable disease diagnostics.
