The Theory And Practice Of Modern Nanobiosensors
Published 2008 · Computer Science
Label-free electronic detection of biomolecules has long been a cherished dream for researchers involved in Genomics and Proteomics. Despite significant interest and almost monthly reports of groundbreaking experimental results in leading journals by researchers all over the world, the elements that dictate response of a biosensor has remained - until recently - poorly understood. In this paper, we discuss how the elementary use of fractal geometry of diffusion, percolative transport in random networks, electrolyte screening-limited response, etc. are finally allowing us to establish the performance potential of such sensors. We also discuss the broader context of the electronic detection problem and the challenges of practical application.
