Soft contact lens (SCL) biomaterials originated from the discovery of a poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (poly[HEMA])-based hydrogel in 1960. Incorporation of hydrophilic polymers into poly(HEMA) hydrogels was performed in the 1970-1980s, which brought an increase in the equilibrium water content, leading to an enhancement of the oxygen permeability.(More)
Conducting polymers possessing biorecognition elements are essential for developing electrical biosensors sensitive and specific to clinically relevant biomolecules. We developed a new 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) derivative bearing a zwitterionic phosphorylcholine group via a facile synthesis through the Michael-type addition thiol-ene "click"(More)
The biomimetic synthetic phospholipid polymer containing a phosphorylcholine group, 2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine (MPC), has improved the surface property of biomaterials. Both hydrophilic and anti-biofouling surfaces were prepared on polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) with MPC grafted by surface-initiated photo-induced radical polymerization.(More)
Poly(p-xylylene) (Parylene C) coatings have been applied in implantable electronic devices because of their electrical insulation and moisture barrier properties. To provide lubrication and an antibiofouling surface, a biomimetic phospholipid polymer--poly(2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine (MPC))--was grafted from the surface using UV irradiation(More)
We have developed biosensors based on an aptamer-modified field-effect transistor (FET) for the detection of lysozyme and thrombin. An oligonucleotide aptamer as a sensitive and specific ligand for these model proteins was covalently immobilized on a gold electrode extended to the gate of FET together with thiol molecules to make a densely packed(More)
Peptide nucleic acid (PNA) has outstanding affinity over DNA for complementary nucleic acid sequences by forming a PNA-DNA heterodimer upon hybridization via Watson-Crick base-pairing. To verify whether PNA probes on an electrode surface enhance sensitivity for potentiometric DNA detection or not, we conducted a comparative study on the hybridization of PNA(More)
We developed a new building block for a protein- and cell-repellant self-assembled monolayer (SAM) from 2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine (MPC) via a simple Michael-type addition to one mercapto group in alkanedithiol. The thiolated MPC can enable functionalization of a noble metal electrode to minimize noise signal in biosensing.
We describe the highly sensitive detection of the nonspecific adsorption of proteins onto a 1-undecanethiol self-assembled monolayer (SAM)-formed gold electrode by parallel analysis using field effect transistor (FET), surface plasmon resonance (SPR), and quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) sensors. The FET sensor detects the innate electric charges of the(More)
Nonspecific protein adsorption on self-assembled monolayer (SAM) alkanethiols with various terminal groups was investigated qualitatively and quantitatively using an extended gate-field effect transistor (extended gate-FET). The SAMs were characterized by XPS, cyclic voltammogram and water contact angle measurements. Changes in gate voltage of 1 mV caused(More)
