Microfluidic Impedance Biosensor Chip with DNA-Based Self-Assembled Monolayers for Label-Free Detection of Cardiac Biomarker Troponin I

Alsabbagh, Khaled; Hornung, Tim; Voigt, Achim; Sadir, Sahba; Rajabi, Taleieh; Länge, Kerstin


A microfluidic chip for electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is presented as biosensor for the detection of cardiac troponin I (cTnI), which is one of the most specific diagnostic serum biomarkers for myocardial infarction. Impedimetric biosensors enable the detection of a variety of analytes, including small molecules, proteins, and cells. As analyte detection is direct and label-free, they allow fast detection of biomarkers, which is essential in the diagnosis of cardiac infarctions to promote a positive outcome. The EIS chip presented here consists of a microscope glass slide serving as base plate, sputtered electrodes, and a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) microchannel. The electrode design mainly consists of a working electrode and a counter electrode made of gold. A silver reference electrode can be included, if required. Protocols for electrode functionalization were developed considering a low initial impedance in addition to analyte-specific binding by corresponding antibodies and reduction of non-specific protein adsorption to prevent false-positive signals. Reagents tested for self-assembled monolayers (SAM) on gold electrodes included hydrocarbons with thiol groups and thiolated oligonucleotides. ... mehr
