Development of sensitive detection of micro RNAs by optical microscopy
Micro RNAs which were secreted to blood from cancer cells are expected to be prominent candidates for biomarkers of the cancer. We are developing fluorescence microscopy for detecting and quantifying the micro RNAs which were extracted from blood or body fluid. The microdevice which can detect and quantify tiny amount of micro RNAs will enable us to diagnose cancers in early stage at medical institutions or at home.
