One of the problems associated with the acoustic biosensor format, is the isolation of the electrical connections, from the liquid test sample. In this paper, we describe our search for an electromagnetic coupling solution, how we modified it for acoustic biosensors, and some of the physical characteristics that we did not anticipate: We began by reviewing the formal descriptions of electromagnetically induced acoustic produced by solid-state physicists of the 1960s, to help understand… CONTINUE READING
