Very proud of the work by graduate student Alexander Shaver, who just published the article “Alkanethiol Monolayer End Groups Affect the Long-Term Operational Stability and Signaling of Electrochemical, Aptamer-Based Sensors in Biological Fluids” in ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces. #NetzLabHopkins

In this study, Alex demonstrates the importance of selecting adequate monolayer chemistries to produce longer-lasting electrochemical biosensors. Specifically, we are working towards improving the operational stability of electrochemical, aptamer-based sensors to enable multiday sensing in vivo. More to come from the group! #NetzLabHopkins
