Good news! Our proposal “Nanofluidic devices for high-throughput single-molecule fluorescence detection (Nanofluidic-SMFD)” has been granted by the European Commission (FP7-PEOPLE-2013-CIG, #630992). The proposed work aims at utilising nanofluidic devices to overcome current limitations in single-molecule-fluorescence detection. Specifically, we are hoping to monitor enzymatic reactions such as DNA polymerisation in real time without immobilising any of the involved molecules to a surface as it is currently necessary. For this project, we will continue our collaboration with Klaus Mathwig (www.kmathwig.com).
