The identification and quantification of proteins in complex mixtures using nanopore sensing with high specificity was published by Nicholas Bell and Ulrich Keyser in a recent article in Nature Nanotechnology (http://www.nature.com/nnano/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nnano.2016.50.html) . Their combination of DNA nanotechnology with nanopore based detection of single molecules allowed for the multiplexed identification of antibodies. Drs Bell and Keyser received for this ground-breaking work the Helmholtz Price. The 'Helmholtz Preis' is awarded by the Physikalisch-Technische-Bundesanstalt and Helmholtz Fond and is one of the most important honours for research in applied metrology.
