Abstract

The present invention is for a genetic assay based on hybridization with a multivalent probe, wherein the probe contains multiple sequences that are complimentary to multiple sequences on the target. If the target is present during the hybridization, molecular weight increase or even gelation occurs, which can be detected either via light scattering, rheological, or molecular weight measurements.
