Using graphene and tiny droplets to detect stomach-cancer causing bacteria

Scientists have invented a new biosensor using graphene to detect bacteria such as those that attack the stomach lining and that have been linked to stomach cancer. When the bacteria interact with the biosensor, chemical reactions are triggered which are detected by the graphene.
