Microtransponders (RFID p-Chips) derivatized with silver island film (SIF) have previously seen success as a platform for the quantification of low-abundance biomolecules in nucleic acid based assays and immunoassays. In this study, we further characterized the morphology of the SIF as well as the polymer matrix enveloping it by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The polymer was a two-layer silane-based matrix engulfing the p-Chip and SIF. Through a series of SEM and confocal fluorescence… CONTINUE READING
