Problem Addressed

Currently, the most advanced, widely-used molecular recognition schemes involve natural systems, including antibodies and aptamers. Natural recognition schemes are limited by the need for a living organism or by problems such as degradation, instability, cost, and production scale that natural recognition schemes face. Synthetic recognition schemes such as molecular imprinting have been able to recognize small molecules, but no method for identifying macromolecules has been successful.
