DNA origami puts a smart lid on solid-state nanopore sensors
The latest advance in solid-state nanopore sensors – devices that are made with standard tools of the semiconductor industry yet can offer single-molecule sensitivity for label-free protein screening – expands their bag of tricks through bionanotechnology. TUM-IAS Hans Fischer Tenure Track Fellow Prof. Hendrik Dietz, TUM-IAS Carl von Linde Junior Fellow Dr. Ulrich Rant and other researchers at the Technische Universität München have enhanced the capabilities of solid-state nanopores by fitting them with cover plates made of DNA. The results are published in Angewandte Chemie International Edition.
