Hence, the cantilever bending can be construed as a measure of free energy reduction due to the chemical reaction on one surface. What is worth noting is that because free energy reduction is common for all reactions, the cantilever-based sensing is universal platform for studying reactions. The ability of analyzing molecules without the use of optical or radioactive labels makes this approach rather attractive for biology and medicine. As DNA microarrays successfully provide means to study genomics in a highthroughput manner, various protein microarrays have been under development to enable quantitative and rapid protein analysis.

INTRODUCTION Currently, a variety of strategies for developing nanopores for molecular sensing exist— from engineering transmembrane protein pores so that they can detect sequence-specific DNA strands with single-base resolution [1, 2] to “drilling” molecular-scaled holes into silicon nitride membranes to detect the presence of single molecules of DNA [3, 4] to employing gold [5] or carbon [6] nanotubes as the ultimate artificial pores.
