Nanotechnology opens up for "ultrafast" genetic testing

Prof. Yoshinobu Baba, Assistant Prof. Takao Yasui, and their colleagues at the Graduate School of Engineering, Nagoya University, conducting a joint research with Prof. Tomoji Kawai and his research group at The Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research, Osaka University, newly developed a nanoscaled genetic testing device called "nano-Christmas tree." Using this device, the researchers recorded the fastest deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) analysis in seconds and made instant genetic testing possible.

This research was published in Scientific Reports on June 11, 2014.
