Nanoparticles and quantum dots as biomolecule labels for electrochemical biosensing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to discuss the advantages of use of nanoparticles and quantum dots as tags for electrochemical bioassays. Nanoscale materials bring new opportunities for electrochemical biosensing. Quantum dots are very stable (comparing to enzyme labels), they offer high sensitivity (thousands of atoms can be released from one nanoparticle) and wide variety of nanoparticles brings possibility for multiplex detection of several biomolecules.
