Gold 'sponge' sensor can handle messy samples
Sponge-like nanoporous gold could be key to new devices for detecting disease-causing agents in humans and plants, say researchers. Two recent papers demonstrate that the team could detect nucleic acids using nanoporous gold, a novel sensor-coating material, in mixtures of other biomolecules that would gum up most detectors.
