ABSTRACT We report an ultrasensitive DNA sensor using the rapid enhancement of electrocatalytic activity of DNA-conjugated Pd nanoparticles (NPs); the rapid enhancement results from the fast catalytic hydrolysis of NaBH(4) on Pd NPs and subsequent fast hydrogen sorption into Pd NPs.

    ABSTRACT: This paper extends the cepstral calculus based on our novel approach with the frequency-domain interpolation to a multidimensional case. The derived differential polycepstra may be implemented successfully to the system identification even when the system input is excited by symmetrically distributed i.i.d. random noise. We show that the differential polycepstrum of any order shrinks to a one-dimensional differential cepstrum located in two identical replicas, on the x-axis and the main diagonal of the multidimensional cepstral space, if we process the system output signal whose excitation was i.i.d. random white noise. The interpolation-based calculation asymptotically eliminates cepstral aliasing and overlapping of the causal and anticausal part of differential cepstrum. At the same time, the complexity of the computational algorithm is lower compared to the techniques of cepstral aliasing reduction. We reveal this newly derived computational algorithm and depict its strength on identification of two simulated system responses

    ABSTRACT: A sensitive electrochemical immunosensing chip is presented by employing (i) selective modification of protein-resistant surfaces; (ii) fabrication of a stable Ag/AgCl reference electrode; (iii) capillary-driven microfluidic control; (iv) signal amplification by redox cycling along with enzymatic reaction. Purely capillary-driven microfluidic control is combined with electrochemical sandwich-type immunosensing procedure. Selective modification of the surfaces is achieved by chemical reactivity-controlled patterning and electrochemical deposition. Fluidic control of the immunosensing chip is achieved by spontaneous capillary-driven flows and passive washing. The detection limit for mouse IgG in the immunosensing chip is 10 pg/mL.

    ABSTRACT: A novel biosensing strategy for selective electrochemical detection of DNA down to the attomolar level with a linear range of 5 orders of magnitude was developed by the specific recognitions of target DNA and streptavidin to biotin labelled molecular beacon and signal amplification of streptavidin-horseradish peroxidase functionalized carbon nanotubes.
