Diagnosis on a chip - molecular profiling that could improve diagnosis and help design better drugs


A new method for identifying specific proteins in blood or tissue samples could some day be used by doctors to help diagnose diseases and develop better drugs. The technique builds up a molecular “portrait” of the sample that researchers hope will allow them to pinpoint the specific constellation of proteins that indicate a particular illness or disease.
