We participated in the study on cisplatin-cross-linked DNA origami nanostructures for drug delivery applications published by researchers J. Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague, Czech Republic.

Our plasma system RPS40+ was used in this study to modify the surfaces of silicon wafers before the deposition of DNA solution. The work demonstrates that a single molecule cisplatin (a chemotherapy medication used to treat a number of cancers) can act as both load and stabilizer of DNA origami nanostructures-based drug carriers.
