PicoTRECTM is a new Topography and RECognition imaging solution that requires no fluorescence, radioactivity, enzyme-linked detection schemes or other extraneous labels. It combines real-time detection of molecular recognition events and single-molecule sensitivity with the imaging capability of AFM/SPM. PicoTREC allows a researcher to quickly determine where specific, single molecule binding interactions occur on a sample and resolves them from surface topography information.
