Polymer Molecule Layered On Carb Molecule to Increase Sensitivity

According to a new research at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, scientists have developed a new biosensor which is highly sensitive in detecting// blood sugar levels. They have taken a polymer (protein) and layered it on the carbon nanotube to increase the detection capacity.

This configuration can accommodate a wide range of applications, from ultra-precise blood-sugar monitoring to infectious-agent detection, said Yuehe Lin, who led the research at the Department of Energy campus' W.R. Wiley Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory.

The technique, described in the current (April) Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, enables enzymes, with the help of a long, noodle-like polymer molecule, to self-assemble layer-by-layer on a single carbon nanotube.

Lin and co-author Guodong Liu, a postdoctoral fellow in Lin's group, coaxed electrostatic clinginess in a polymer and an oppositely charged protein-enzyme, in this case glucose oxidase, which reacts in the presence of blood sugar. The catalyzed products from the reaction ping the carbon nanotube; if the tube is connected to an electrode, the tube will carry a signal that corresponds precisely with the amount of glucose detected. The first polymer binds to the carbon nanotube. Enzymes are attracted to the polymer, leaving an outer layer for the next polymer of opposite charge to cling to, and so on.

An individual strand coated with one to six layers ranges from 30 nanometers to about 50 nanometers thick. "Each polymer layer is porous," Lin said. "This allows the glucose to diffuse in and come into contact with the enzymes." "The polymers trap the enzymes in place," Liu said. "You can go up to five or six layers to improve the sensitivity of the detector, but after that, the more enzyme layers" inhibit diffusion of the glucose.

Now that the glucose enzyme biosensor has passed the test, Lin said, it should be possible to build a similar sensor using other
