Biomolecules for measuring the degree of acidity using diagnostic ultrasound

David Maresca and team will develop a biosensor at the nanoscale to map out biological processes using ultrasound. This makes it possible to observe the regulation of acidity, for example. The ultrasound biosensor consists of protein in gaseous state and is inspired by a green, fluorescent bacterium that occurs in nature. Using this nanotechnology, the researchers can observe inflammation in the vascular system, among other things.
