Book Description :

This thesis is about the design of a biosensor system for detection of multiple cancer biomarkers. Accurate diagnosis and prognosis of cancer requires early detection. Equally important, though, is the measurement of biomarker-velocity and detection of multiple biomarkers. Early detection requires highly sensitive biosensors capable of detection at very low concentrations of target molecules. Biomarker-velocity can be measured by monitoring concentration of target molecule over a period of time. This requires a system which is very easy to use, fast, flexible, inexpensive and portable, thus enabling its ubiquitous presence at the point of care. For detection of multiplexed biomarkers, biosensors which easily lend to array configuration are required. Conventional techniques do not fulfill either all or some aspects of the requirements listed above. In this work, we present the design of a biosensor system, keeping in view the desired features described above, to achieve the ultimate goal of enabling ubiquitous presence of biosensor at the point of care. We focus on acoustic transducer based biosensors. The two fundamental components of design in an acoustic biosensor are the design of an acoustic transducer and the design of a novel electrical interface for the transducer. For transducer design, we introduce and present the design of a single structure, GHz range, multi-mode acoustic resonator. We present this as a suitable transducer for liquid phase biosensors, which is the preferred medium for sensing of cancer biomarkers. We explore the underlying physics and do experimental and theoretical characterization of this device. The transducer needs to be functionalized with a chemically sensitive layer which performs the molecular recognition of cancer biomarkers. We present the experimental exploration of a reversible and oriented immobilization based Histidine-Ni(2+) interaction which used NTA as the chelator for anchoring onto the device. Then we discuss the microfluidic design to enable liquid phase operation. We used SU-8 polymer barriers for liquid containment and addressed the challenges of making it compatible with ZnO based devices. An electrical interface is needed to excite and extract the sensor response. We have presented here a novel method to measure and track a resonator's response and extract its characteristic parameters. This method measures the wideband frequency response of the resonator with a much simpler setup as compared to conventional methods. We have proposed and demonstrated the use of a white noise signal as a viable signal for broadband excitation of resonator-based sensing platforms. We have also established, shown through simulation and prototype measurements, the feasibility of the proposed method. The accuracy and speed of the system can be further greatly improved by FFT-based digital implementation of the spectral analysis system. We have presented an example hardware implementation of FFT-based signal analyzer, and have discussed the hardware resources required for actual implementation in a chip form. Lastly we discuss the measurement protocol and sensor results for head and neck cancer and prostate cancer biomarkers. These results demonstrate the usability of the proposed sensor system for detection of cancer biomarkers.

Book Description :

Biosensors offer excellent diagnostic methods through precise quantification of bodily fluid biomarkers and could fill an important niche in diagnostic screening. The long term goal of this research is the development of an impedance immunosensor for easy-to-use, rapid, sensitive and selective simultaneously multiplexed quantification of bodily fluid disease biomarkers. To test the hypothesis that various cytokines induce empirically determinable response frequencies when captured by printed circuit board (PCB) impedance immunosensor surface, cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) methods were used to test PCB biosensors versus multiple cytokine biomarkers to determine limits of detection, background interaction and response at all sweep frequencies. Results indicated that sensors for cytokine Interleukin-12 (IL-12) detected their target over three decades of concentration and were tolerant to high levels of background protein. Further, the hypothesis that cytokine analytes may be rapidly detected via constant frequency impedance immunosensing without sacrificing undue sensitivity, CV, EIS, impedance-time (Zt) methods and modeling were used to test CHITM gold electrodes versus IL-12 over different lengths of time to determine limits of detection, detection time, frequency of response and consistent cross-platform sensor performance. Modeling and Zt studies indicate interrogation of the electrode with optimum frequency could be used for detection of different target concentrations within 90 seconds of sensor exposure and that interrogating the immunosensor with fixed, optimum frequency could be used for sensing target antigen. This informs usability of fixed-frequency impedance methods for biosensor research and particularly for clinical biosensor use. Finally, a multiplexing impedance immunosensor prototype for quantification of biomarkers in various body fluids was designed for increased automation of sample handling and testing. This enables variability due to exogenous factors and increased rapidity of assay with eased sensor fabrication. Methods were provided for simultaneous multiplexing through multisine perturbation of a sensor, and subsequent data processing. This demonstrated ways to observe multiple types of antibody-antigen affinity binding events in real time, reducing the number of sensors and target sample used in the detection and quantification of multiple biomarkers. These features would also improve the suitability of the sensor for clinical multiplex detection of disease biomarkers.
