 Project objective

NaTOS: Nanoscale Thermo Optical Sensing is the concept of a new truly label free bio-sensor device capable of monitoring transient molecular interactions. The sensor utilizes plasmonic gold nanorods (NR) as both nanoscale heating source and optical near field sensor. Proteins and enzymes will be monitored as they change the intensity scattered by a single NR as they diffuse through the nanorod's nearfield. The simultaneous laser induced and thus tunable heating of the NR will induces a nanoscale temperature gradient that allows to probe the analytes with respect to their thermophoretic behavior. This analyte specific behavior provides specific thermophortic fingerprints which will be used to identify and distinguish between different proteins and in further extend also to monitor the interaction between different species of analytes. This novel type of sensor does not require fluorescent labels nor does it rely on tethering of specific receptors and the consequent binding of analytes to the NRs. In contrast to current state of the art techniques this truly label-free sensor does not suffer from binding induced life time restrictions and can obtain statistical significant datasets without the requirement, but with the possibility of multiplexing.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "NATOS" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.

The information about "NATOS" are provided by the European Opendata Portal: CORDIS opendata.
