Abstract:

The goal of this project is to develop a new class of biosensors using carbon and polymer based microelectromechanical systems CPMEMS and a platform that incorporates multiple bio-detection strategies. This progress report covers the development of a sense and release experiment, and further a proof of concept of actual drug release on a release experiment. Other points of progress include studies on alternate methods of developing the self assembled protein layers, specifically utilizing DNA-DNA binding to develop the biological detection method for incorporation into the CPMEMS sensor platform. Progress on the development and study of a Bio-collection system to capture airborne microorganisms and concentrate them in a water solution for detection. Progress on an alternate sacrificial layer Unity 400 to develop the CPMEMS bridge structures will also be discussed in this report.
