Scientists put a high precision blood assay into a simple test strip

Scientists have developed a new biosensor test system based on magnetic nanoparticles that is similar (in its principal) to a pregnancy test. This system is designed to provide highly accurate measurements of the concentration of protein molecules (e.g. markers, which indicate the onset or development of a disease) in various samples, including opaque solutions or strongly coloured liquids.
