Abstract:

This project involved the development of a biosensor based on a carbon and polymer micro-electromechanical system CPMEMS array comprised of micro-bridges to allow multiple bio-detection strategies. It would have the advantages of being autonomous, with quick response and high selectivity, as well as low cost. The multiple-strategy bio-detection platform will include systems that were developed by the Missouri State University and systems that were developed by our corporate partners and collaborators Brewer Science, Inc. and Crosslink, Inc. One platform strategy is the use of a chemical release electro-active polymer to perform sense and release experiments. In conjunction to a broad-band biologicalchemical detection system, a bio-collection system was also developed. The focus of this project was to produce a generalized system or substrate of transducers that can he applied to many emerging bio-detection strategies. We will demonstrate feasibility with well known methods of detection as well as many other new detection strategies that can be accommodated on this platform.
