The technology allows a liquid sample to be passed, in continuous flow, through a silicon chip containing an asymmetric pillar array that allows sorting a microscopic waterfall of nanoparticles, separating particles by size down to 20 nanometer resolution (Photo courtesy of IBM Research).

Lab-on-a-Chip Technology Breaks New Bioparticle Separation Record

Scientists have developed a new lab-on-a-chip technology that can, for the first time, separate biological particles at the nanoscale down to 20 nanometers in diameter, a scale that gives access to important particles such as DNA, viruses, and exosomes. The breakthrough could enable detection of various diseases before symptoms appear and would facilitate use of relatively noninvasive liquid biopsies. More...
