Biomolecular Sensing for Cancer Diagnostics Using Carbon Nanotubes
The field of biomolecule sensing in the medical field is broad and rapidly evolving. The devices range in size from microns to centimeters across the sensing surface and rely on electronic, optical or other form of signals. If the sensing technology utilizes toxic reagents, then the use is limited to only in vitro application. In this chapter, biomolecule sensing using carbon nanotubes (CNTs) is discussed with specific application to cancer diagnostics.
