One of the most sensitive and powerful means of doing molecular diagnostics is by the use of time-dependent electro-analytical techniques such as those based on spectroscopic methods which can be optimized to follow the analysis in a single frequency.
Within the context of mimetics, the Nanobionics group has created strategies to study biological affinity and binding kinetics on the surface of electrodes by using changes in the electronic or electrochemical signal of the interface.
Computer simulation methods constitute a powerful tool in understanding molecular systems, offering a connection between observed macroscopic phenomena and microscopic interaction through different timescales.
Molecular scale capacitance is an important phenomenon in electrochemistry having important applications in designing capacitive interfaces for molecular diagnostic devices.

The future is uncertain… But this uncertain is at the very heart of human creativity.
Ilia Prigogine (1917 – 2003)
An absolute can only be given in an intuition, while all the rest has to do with analysis.
Henry Bergson (1859 – 1941)
An experiment is a question which science poses to Nature and a measurement is the recording of Nature’s answer.
Max Planck (1858 – 1947)
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.
Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955)
You cannot teach a man anything; you can only find it within yourself.
Galileo Galilei (1564 – 1642)
