Scientists are developing biosensors that are sensitive enough to detect even the smallest presence of molecules, so that disease or dangerous environmental contaminants can quickly be assessed. This biosensor is a tiny glass slide of silver with applied protein receptors. When the receptors bind their matching signal molecule, light waves traveling across the chip are perturbed into a recognizable interference pattern.
