Carbon Nanotube Matrix for Highly Sensitive Biosensors to Detect Pancreatic Cancer Biomarker CA19-9

Biosensors fabricated with nanomaterials promise faster, cheaper and more efficient alternatives to traditional, often bulky, devices for early cancer diagnosis. In this study, we fabricated a thin film sensing unit on interdigitated gold electrodes combining polyethylenemine and carbon nanotubes in a layer by layer fashion, onto which antibodies anti-CA19-9 were adsorbed with a supporting layer of N-hydroxysuccinimide and 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide solution.
