A Nose for Cancer
Could a multi-layer graphene (MLG)-based biomarker sensor offer the sensitivity needed for earlier lung cancer detection?
Jonathan James | | Quick Read
The correlation between early diagnosis and better clinical outcomes for patients with lung cancer is well established, but developing an appropriate detection system is easier said than done (1). Several commercially available breath-based detectors have emerged in recent years, yet uptake in the clinic has been slow – hampered by poor sensitivity. Now, an international team based out of the University of Exeter (UoE), UK, is trialing a new system – a multi-layered, patterned graphene sheet that is capable of detecting changes in surface binding.
