Cancer-detecting microchip - a micromachined cantilever - is sensitive assay for prostate cancer and potentially other diseases, researchers report

.... "This could lead to fast screening and molecular profiling for many diseases and a possible cancer chip for detecting cancer." "A big advantage of this technology is that one could look at multiple markers in a single reaction, whereas currently available assays require a separate reaction for each analyte,"...
