BPN757: Biosensors Based on Biologically Responsive Polymers


This project presents the design, fabrication and testing of novel plastic-based lab-on a chip (LOC) biosensors which utilize stimuli responsive polymers as their recognition element. The biosensors are composed of interdigitated electrodes (IDE) coated with a thin film of a responsive polymer. In the presence of stimuli, the responsive polymer degrades from the surface of the IDE, and generates a measurable electrical signal that correlates with the amount of stimuli present in the sample. This technology can be utilized as an accurate, label-free, cost-effective method for engineering biosensors for clinical applications.
