Summary:

A dual-modality sensor to detect and quantify cancer biomarkers with both electrochemical and plasmonic signals on a single microfluidic platform. The sensor can provide not only high reproducibility of detection performances, but also a desirable new ability to quantify specific biomarkers in a small sample volume using two different sensing mechanisms, thus perceiving benefits to improve detection reliability and reduce false positives and negatives.
