Detection Comprising Signal Amplifier
The present invention relates to a method for detecting a target molecule, comprising forming a capturing complex comprising the target molecule; and binding the capturing complex with a signal amplifier, wherein the capturing complex has a net electrical charge; the signal amplifier has affinity to the capturing complex and has a like net electrical charge of the net electrical charge of the capturing complex. The invention improves the detection sensitivity and sensing limit of the detection.
DNA Methylation Detection
The present invention relates to a method for detecting methylation of a target oligonucleotide molecule. The method comprises obtaining an electrical change occurring due to the binding of an electrically charged methylation detecting molecule and the target oligonucleotide molecule; where in the electrically charged methylation detecting molecule has affinity to a methylated cytosine nucleotide. The invention improves the detection sensitivity and accuracy of the oligonucleotide methylation detection.
