Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from IIT, "The method is rapid and sensitive: sub-nanomolar concentrations of the target anthrax lethal factor DNA could be detected in similar to 1 min. Further, our method is selective, which can differentiate the target DNA from other single-stranded DNA molecules at the single-base resolution."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "This sequence-specific detection approach should find useful application in the development of nanopore sensors for the detection of other pathogens."
