Small NMR biomolecular sensors - ScienceDirect

We measured this deflection, which is on the order of tens of nanometers, by embedding a metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor MOSFET into the base of the cantilever and recording decreases in drain current with deflections as small as 5 nanometers. The gate region of the MOSFET responds to surface stresses and thus is embedded in silicon nitride so as to avoid direct contact with the sample solution.

These small, low-cost NMR systems can be useful as biomolecular sensors in the personalized medicine setting, and we demonstrated their ability to detect. Biomolecular Sensors: Benchmarking Basics. Shana Kelley (Associate Editor). University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada. ACS Sens., , 1 (12), pp –

This approach, which offers low noise, high sensitivity, and direct readout, was used to detect specific binding events with biotin and antibodies.
