AbstractAdvances in micro/nanofabrication technologies are enabling the development of mechanical devices with nanosized moving parts. Micro/nanocantilever sensors respond to changes on their surface with a mechanical bending in the order of nanometers which can easily be detected. For sensing applications, when a specific biomolecular binding like protein-protein interactions occurs on one surface of the microcantilever, a change of the surface stress is induced. The oriented immobilization of antiperoxidase from horseradish antibody on a microcantilever was used as model and the specific antigen-antibody interaction was detected by a simple and fast measurement of the microcantilever profile in air for the first time. 3000 measurements conducted to statistically significant results. This specific and sensitive protein biosensor is a potential candidate for the detection of disease-related proteins at clinically relevant conditions and concentrations. Unfortunatelly, label-free protein biosensors still present poor reproducibility and specific immobilization methods must be developed relying on high throughput methodologies.
