Book Description :

Biosensors are poised to make a large impact in environmental, food, and biomedical applications, as they clearly offer advantages over standard analytical methods, including minimal sample preparation and handling, real-time detection, rapid detection of analytes, and the ability to be used by non-skilled personnel. Covering numerous applications of biosensors used in food and the environment, Portable Biosensing of Food Toxicants and Environmental Pollutants presents basic knowledge on biosensor technology at a postgraduate level and explores the latest advances in chemical sensor technology for researchers. By providing useful, state-of-the-art information on recent developments in biosensing devices, the book offers both newcomers and experts a roadmap to this technology. In the book, distinguished researchers from around the world show how portable and handheld nanosensors, such as dynamic DNA and protein arrays, enable rapid and accurate detection of environmental pollutants and pathogens. The book first introduces the basic principles of biosensing for newcomers to the technology. It then explains how the integration of a "receptor" can provide analytically useful information. It also describes trends in biosensing and examines how a small-sized device can have portability for the in situ determination of toxicants. The book concludes with several examples illustrating how to determine toxicants in food and environmental samples.

Book Description :

Magnetic nanotechnologies have shown tremendous potential in the areas of medical imaging, therapeutics, and early diagnostics. In particular, giant magnetoresistive (GMR) spin-valve sensors, commonly used as hard disk read heads, have demonstrated significant promise as biosensors. However, access to such technologies has been limited to laboratories in developed countries. In this work, we present two custom designed portable magnetic immunoassay platforms using integrated GMR biosensors and controlled entirely via smartphone. Then, we explored if GMR sensors can detect glucose molecules. First of all we introduce Eigen Diagnosis Platform (EDP) Generation 1 (G1) that can quantitatively detect analytes of interest within 15 minutes. The platform performs biological reactions on an 8x8 array of GMR biosensors. The signals from the GMR biosensors are transferred to a smartphone connected to the platform by micro USB. A smartphone app processes the raw data and translates them into concentrations of the analytes in the sample. We have developed and implemented a unique one-step assay to complement this platform and simplify point-of-care diagnostics. As demonstrations, we detected human IgG and IgM antibodies and the hepatitis B antibody. The IgG and IgM antibodies could be detected down to 0.07 and 0.33 nanomolar (nM) concentrations, respectively, using the platform's multiplexing capability. Secondly, we further reduced the size of the station, EDP G2, to fit in half the palm of a hand, enhancing its portability. Bluetooth was added in the station to allow wireless communication between the station and a smartphone. To minimize the size and power consumption of the station, we custom designed a toroid magnetic core inductor for operating the GMR biosensors. As proof of concept, we detected THC, the principal constituent of marijuana, to enable roadside screening of impaired drivers. Because the size of THC molecule is small, a competitive assay was designed to detect THC in saliva. Using EDP G2, we quantitatively detected THC down to 15.9 nM concentrations. Thirdly, we explored if we can detect glucose using GMR biosensor. Currently, there is no antibody that can specifically bind to glucose. So, we studied transduction mechanisms for sensing glucose molecules.

Book Description :

Although there is a pressing global need for widely-deployable disease detection and monitoring systems, today's options for biochemical analysis are often bulky, slow, expensive, and reliant on trained medical personnel. In contrast, the miniaturization and integration of devices based on arrays of sources, detectors, and active or passive biosensing surfaces provides a means to achieve handheld diagnostic capabilities with a "lab-on-a-chip" that would be vastly less expensive and fully automated. In this thesis, we design, fabricate, and characterize tunable biosensors with compact and low-cost Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs), integrated detectors, Peltier coolers, photonic crystal slab resonators, and polymer microfluidics. All of the components utilize scalable semiconductor and soft-lithography techniques to significantly reduce the required device footprint, simplify system assembly, and enable large-scale, economical manufacturing. The sensors operate in the visible to near-infrared 650-900 nm wavelength range for low absorption of water, hemoglobin, and other background elements found in tissue or aqueous samples. Moreover, the 670 nm label-free sensors we demonstrate are designed for compatibility with previously characterized monolithically integrated fluorimeters that capitalize on emerging deep-red fluorescent proteins and molecular probes approved for pre-clinical use by the Federal Drug Administration.

Book Description :

Bioanalytical science and its technological subdomain, biosensors, are ever-evolving subjects, striving for rapid improvement in terms of performance and expanding the target range to meet the vast societal and market demands. The key performance factors for a biosensor that drive the research are selectivity, sensitivity, response time, accuracy, and reproducibility, with additional requirements of its portability and inexpensive nature. These performance factors are largely governed by the materials and techniques being used in these bioanalytical platforms. The selection of materials to meet these requirements is critical, as their interaction or involvement with the biological recognition elements should initiate or improve these performance factors. The technique discussed primarily applies to transducers involved in converting a biochemical signal to optical or electrical signals. Over the years, the emergence of novel materials and techniques has drastically improved the performance of these bioanalytical systems, enabling them to expand their analytical horizon. These advanced materials and techniques are central to modern bioanalytical and biosensor research. Advanced Materials and Techniques for Biosensors and Bioanalytical Applications provides a comprehensive review of the subject, including a knowledge platform for both academics and researchers. Considering biosensors as a central theme to this book, an outline on this subject with background principles has been included, with a scope of extending the utility of the book to coursework in graduate and postgraduate schools.
