Challenges for nanomechanical sensors in biological detection.

Nanomechanical biosensing relies on changes in the movement and deformation of micro and nanoscale objects when they interact with biomolecules and other biological targets. This field of research has provided ever-increasing records in label-free detection sensitivity but it has not yet been established as a practical alternative for biological detection. We analyze here the latest advancements in the field, along with the challenges remaining for nanomechanical biosensors to become a commonly used tool in biology and biochemistry laboratories.
