Liquid crystals decorated with linear oligopeptide FLAG for applications in immunobiosensors.

Immunobiosensors are emerging as powerful tools for diagnostic applications. In this paper, we exploit optical properties of liquid crystal (LC) and the specific epitope-antibody interaction to develop an optical immunobiosensor which can be used to detect monoclonal anti-FLAG M2, a model antibody. The sensitive layer of this immunobiosensor is a monolayer… CONTINUE READING
