Acoustic array biochip combined with allele-specific PCR for multiple cancer mutation analysis in tissue and liquid biopsy

The high sensitivity and technology-readiness level of the methodology, together with the ability for multiple sample analysis (24 array biochip), cost-effectiveness and compatibility with routine work-flow, hold promise for the implementation of this AS-PCR/acoustic methodology in clinical oncology as a tool for tissue and liquid biopsy.

Peptide–Fluorophore Hydrogel as a Signal Boosting Approach in Rapid Detection of Cancer DNA

A new oligonucleotide hybridization platform for amplification-free detection of human cancer DNA using a large PEG-capture probe allows rapid separation of the bound (mutant) versus unbound (wild type) DNA.

A Review of Piezoelectric and Magnetostrictive Biosensor Materials for Detection of COVID‐19 and Other Viruses

The state of the art of research on biosensor materials for virus detection is reviewed and progress related to early detection of COVID‐19 (coronavirus disease 2019) is discussed, where remaining challenges in the field are identified.



Amplification-free in situ KRAS point mutation detection at 60 copies per mL in urine in a background of 1000-fold wild type.

Under such conditions, PEPS was shown to specifically detect KRAS MT in situ with 60 copies per mL analytical sensitivity in a background of clinically-relevant 1000-fold more WT in 30 min without DNA isolation, amplification, or labeling.

Piezoelectric Plate Sensor (PEPS) for Analysis of Specific KRAS Point Mutations at Low Copy Number in Urine Without DNA Isolation or Amplification.

Under these conditions PEPS was shown to specifically detect KRAS MT in situ within 30 min with an analytical sensitivity of 60 copies/mL in a clinically relevant background of WT with concentrations 1000-fold greater than that of MT without DNA isolation, amplification, or labeling.

Temperature- and flow-enhanced detection specificity of mutated DNA against the wild type with reporter microspheres.

It was shown that at room temperature, flow initially increased the binding of both the MT and WT at lower flow rates but decreased the binding at flow rates ≥4 ml min(-1) due to the increase in the flow-induced impingement force on the FRMs to overcome the bound pDNA and the WT to the GCG at higher flow rates.

DNA melting analysis for detection of single nucleotide polymorphisms.

DNA melting analysis (DM) was used successfully for variant detection, and two previously unknown SNPs were discovered by this approach, making it highly suitable for the large-scale detection of sequence variants.

Transrenal DNA testing: progress and perspectives

The Tr-DNA test is expected to have utility in treatment monitoring, transplantation monitoring, drug development and broad public health screening, where a noninvasive, common-platform diagnostic technology has particular value.

Ultrasensitive in situ label-free DNA detection using a GaN nanowire-based extended-gate field-effect-transistor sensor.

It is successfully demonstrated that a GaN nanowire (GaNNW) based extended-gate field-effect-transistor (EGFET) biosensor is capable of specific DNA sequence identification under label-free in situ conditions, suggesting the potential pragmatic application in complex clinical samples.

Transrenal DNA as a Diagnostic Tool: Important Technical Notes

The sensitivity and specificity of detection of mutant sequences are reduced in the presence of high excess of a respective wild‐type allele, but they can be significantly increased through application of enriched polymerase chain reaction (PCR), peptide nucleic acid (PNA) clamped PCR, and/or stencil‐aided mutation analysis (SAMA), based on selective pre‐PCR elimination of wild‐ type sequences.
