Homogeneous assays are attractive because they are performed in only one phase, namely, the liquid phase, and thus, they do not require separation of phases as their heterogeneous counterparts do. As opposed to heterogeneous assays, the signal generation in a homogeneous assay is a direct result of analyte binding, which allows the multiple washing and incubation steps required in an indirect heterogeneous assay format to be eliminated. Moreover, homogeneous assays are usually fast and amenable… Expand
Detection of cortisol at a gold nanoparticle|Protein G-DTBP-scaffold modified electrochemical immunosensor.
An ultrasensitive electrochemical immmunosensor was demonstrated to be capable of detecting the hormone cortisol down to concentrations as low as 16 pg mL −1 and a linear range up to ∼2500 pg mL(-1) of cortisol. Expand
