SARS-Cov-2 is not the only virus responsible for a pandemic this century; the human immunodeficiency virus, more commonly known as HIV, is another. Unlike SARS-Cov-2 however, HIV infection cannot be cured; transmission is irreversible.
Focal molography was introduced in the latest blog article as a novel technology capable of detecting molecular interactions, without acquiring any environmental noise. What other advantages does this technology provide?
Although SPR offers many advantages in biosensing, its potential is hampered by one key factor: environmental noise. Has any biosensor ever overcome this challenge? A novel technology, known as focal molography, is emerging as a contender in noise-free biosensing.
One of the most common label-free assays for detecting molecular interactions is surface plasmon resonance (SPR). In this article, we discuss what it s used for, how it works, and some of its key advantages and disadvantages.
