Yes it has been demonstrated separating the bio-molecules down to 20-nanometer size, but not in a real application the first of which will be prostate cancer. I put the link to the paper in the original. I don't know why the copy editors cut it out. Here it is: "Nanoscale Lateral Displacement Arrays for Separation of Exosomes and Colloids Down to 20nm" http://go.nature.com/2aoBaVW

I'm sorry if I missed it, was this successfully demonstrated and data is available?  The title implies it's demonstrated, but wording appeard future looking.

Yes, IBM and Mount Sinai have many other maladies in mind for detection before symptoms manifest, but its is just starting with prostate cancer. Thanks for the comment.

This not only portends advances in cancer detection, but also in markers for other diseases including Alzheimer's.  Thanks for reporting this Colin.

It promises to deliver what Theranos promised and faked the data on.
