Nanowires have been shown to be highly sensitive detectors of biomarkers, but traditional processes for fabrication are expensive and produce devices with only a handful of nanowires to accomplish the detection. ASG can produce devices with millions of nanowires inexpensively providing the opportunity for both highly sensitive detection and detection of multiple biomarkers on the same chip. ASG recently was awarded an NSF Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) award to apply the technology for the detection of lung cancer biomarkers from blood samples which could result in major cost savings and improvements in patient outcomes.
