February 19, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- New research on Nanoparticles is the subject of a report. According to news reporting from Valencia, Spain, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "We discuss nanosized dendrimers from the point of view of electrochemical-biosensor design."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Valencia, "We review electrochemical biosensors based on dendrimer-encapsulated metal nanoparticles (NPs) and their various applications (e.g., measurement of small biological and toxic molecules, detection of DNA, and immunosensing of disease biomarkers)."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Finally, we discuss some future applications of electrochemical biosensors based on dendrimer-encapsulated metal NPs."
