DNA origami is a nanotechnology used to create 3D-structures on the nanoscale with precise control over their size and shape. The technique involves folding a long single-stranded DNA molecule into a desired shape using a shorter „staple“ DNA strands. DNA origami has several benefits, including precise control over structure, versatility, biocompatibility, programmability, scalability, and cost-effectiveness. One of the most significant benefits of DNA origami is its potential for medical diagnostics as it can be used to improve the sensitivity and specificity of point-of-care immunoassays.
