Protein immobilization on 3C-SiC (100) as a substrate for detecting the onset of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) Academic Article uri icon


  • Silicon Carbide (SiC), has been shown to be a bio- and hema-compatible substrate that could potentially be used in biosensor applications. The development of a viable biorecognition interface using SiC as the substrate material for bio-detection is described. Surface modification with 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) and immobilization via covalent conjugation of antimyoglobin (anti-Myo) on the modified surfaces is achieved, which are initial steps for immunosensing based devices. Successful formation of APTES layers and antibody immobilization were identified with surface water contact angle (SWCA), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and atomic force microscopy (AFM).
