Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are cylindrical large molecules made up of a hexagonal arrangement of hybridised carbon atoms that can be formed by rolling up a single sheet of graphene (SWCNTs) or multiple sheets of graphene (MWCNTs).
Spraying CNTs on a flexible plastic surface, such as a piece of plastic food packaging sheet, has also been used to visualise sensors for detecting food spoilage. The compounds that suggest rotting are then detected by these nanotubes acting as sensors. This regulates food quality.
Jackets that are bulletproof are made with carbon nanotubes. The bodies of spacecraft and aircraft can be constructed from carbon nanotubes. Due to their semiconducting characteristics, carbon nanotubes can be used to create high-performance nanoscaled thin-film transistors that can replace silicon-based transistors.
The Global Carbon nanotube sensor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
New Carbon Nanotube-Based Sensor Can Detect SARS-CoV-2 Proteins. For the purpose of detecting the nucleocapsid and spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, researchers from MIT have created unique nanosensors.
The creation of brand-new nanosensors for the detection of the nucleocapsid and spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus was announced by MIT researchers. The Corona Phase Molecular Recognition (CoPhMoRe) sensors are the result of a partnership between MIT and early-stage diagnostics startup InnoTech Precision Medicine. and were created in a short amount of time.
To create the CoPhMoRe sensors, single-walled carbon nanotubes and polymers were used. These sensors are designed to offer a framework for the rapid creation of rapid and precise diagnostic, monitoring, and surveillance assays for the identification of present and emerging infections.
For speedy and effective illness diagnosis and control, new technologies utilising unique materials and methodologies are essential. In order to support a comprehensive public health response to current and upcoming dangers, we must modernise our diagnostic tests because conventional diagnostics are pricey, specialised, and slow to develop.
