Aptamer biosensors from academia to industry
The reproducible performance and wide target range of aptamers are enabling researchers of all levels in the pursuit of better diagnostics.
Dr Mark Platt at Loughborough University has extensive experience in developing new and improved biosensors. His interests span from blue-sky research to developing rapid release assays for the soft drinks industry as part of his new spinout company.
We spoke with him about why aptamers are the right solution for his diagnostics, how he selected Aptamer Group as a collaborator, and the new developments in multiplex biosensors that are exciting him right now.
