Group research explained by Eduardo Gil Santos, Alberto Martín Pérez y Marina López Yubero in 20minutos newspaper

Each virus and bacteria has a different mass. Just by weighing them, we would be able to identify and distinguish them and therefore, detect the associated diseases in a very early stage. Recent advances in nanotechnology have allowed the fabrication of a new class of devices called nanomechanical sensors, which act as weighing devices at the nanometer scale, allowing the detection of these objects with much greater precision than conventional methods used for diseases´ diagnosis.
