Abstract : The proposed research aims to develop innovative technology that could ultimately lead to new breast cancer screening tests ? ones, which will not require expensive equipment for read-out, but rather will be compatible with miniaturized systems integrated in cheap handheld devices. Towards this goal, we have designed and realized in practice a surface that can act as detection unit. This opens the door for further work that will be geared towards testing of biomarkers.
