Nanostructured Molecularly Imprinted Sensors for Direct Electrochemical Detection of Analytes – IP 1433

FIU inventors have presented a technique, known as molecularimprinting, for creating specific recognition sites in conducting polymericmatrices that mimics the recognition of biological receptors. Molecularlyimprinted polymers are synthetic polymers with highly specific recognitionsites, formed during polymerization, in the presence of target analytes and inthe subsequent removal of analytes. The target analytes act as templates whilethe polymer arranges itself around it so that, once removed, the polymer leaveswith imprinted molecular cavities within the polymer matrix that enable it toselectively rebind the analytes. We are looking for a business partner tofurther develop and commercialize Nanostructured Molecularly Imprinted Sensorsas a viable alternative to commercially available techniques and to exploit itsbusiness and scientific potential as a label-free electrochemical biosensorthat detects analytes without the use of any redox mediators and with enhancedsensitivity of cortisol detection.
