Bio-nanotransduction is a biological detection scheme that is based on biological recognition (Bio) and the production of biological nano-signals which allows the change of recognition event into universal signal molecules (nanotransduction). A single sample can be converted into a pool of nano-signals specific for each target. Detection and differentiation of the nano-signals are correlated to the presence of targets in the original sample. It is possible to link various biological recognition events to platforms (such as biosensors) capable of detecting nano-signals. This allows the application of new target recognition while using a universal platform previously optimized for nano-signal detection.
