The article reports that researchers at the University of Ulster in Ireland have teamed up with their counterparts at the Indian Institute of Technology in India to develop whole-blood sensors that may detect biomarkers in low-volume blood samples in the diagnosis of heart disease. The use of carbon nanotubes has been proposed by the team to filter out blood cells that might adhere to sensors, which will then pick up a series of enzymes to help diagnose and gauge the severity of the condition.
