Nanotubes used to “Sniff” out Cancer Agents in Cells

A team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)  have developed carbon nanotubes that can be used to sense cancer drugs (chemotherapy drug Cisplatin) and environemntal toxins and free radicals that have the potential to damage DNA. The sensors are made of carbon nanotubes coated in DNA. This binds the DNA-damaging agents present in the […]
