High Sensitivity Detection.
Improved understanding of immune cell function depends strongly upon sensitive detection and accurate quantification of low abundance cell surface molecules. Today’s sensitive methods are prohibitively complex, not quantitative, and too slow for clinical research. We have changed all that.
Plasmonic nanoparticles provide high sensitivity and a means for quantifying rare cell surface molecules. Under the microscope they appear as a three-dimensional array of ultra-bright points of light distributed over the entire cell surface. Each point of light corresponds to a single molecule. Plasmonic nanoparticles enable a system with unprecedented sensitivity and ease of use.
