Next Generation Biosensors and Biodetection Techniques


Darryl BornhopKeynote Presentation

A Paradigm Shift in Biosensing: Label-Free Measurements in Free-solution
Darryl Bornhop, Professor, Vanderbilt University, United States of America

Back-scattering interferometry (BSI) can be used to detect and quantify a wide array of biological analytes, in complex matrices, at pM-fM levels, without labels or immobilization. It will be shown that these unique capabilities enable rapid, low sample consumption, biomarker validation and the potential for near-patient diagnostics.


Functional Colloids for Advanced Biosensing Techniques
Martin Mak, Research Fellow, Linkoping University, Sweden

Functional inorganic-biological materials with combined physiochemical and biological properties have attracted much attention for emerging applications including medical, diagnostics, catalysis, biofuel cells and nano-devices. Inorganic nanomaterials impart unique optical, electrochemical and magnetic characteristic; while biological materials provides specific bio-recognition capability, and offer excellent biocompatibility. Integration of various inorganic and biological materials into a one entity allows intimate contact and enhances the synergistic interactions between the hybrid materials. We will present the technology on design and fabrication of advanced hybrid inorganic-biological colloidal particle with tailored functions for biosensing applications.

The Next Generation Self Monitoring of Blood Glucose (SMBG) and Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM)
Koji Sode, Chair, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, Japan

The principle of the current commercial available glucose sensors for self monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) and for continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) are based on either the 1st or the 2nd generation. Here, I present our challenge in the development of next generation SMBG and CGM based on the 3rd generation principle, that is the direct electron transfer technology.


Plasmonic Amplification for Fluorescence Biosensors
Jakub Dostalek, Researcher, Austrian Institute of Technology, Austria

Plasmon-enhanced fluorescence for amplification of fluorescence signal in assays will be discussed. Tailoring of this method enabling the analysis of protein biomarkers at low femtomolar concentrations and bacterial pathogens with 10 cfu/mL sensitivity will be reported.

Takara Clontech Lunchtime Workshop - Improved cDNA Library Generation for Transcriptome Analysis from a Single Cell


Novel Approaches for Labeless Electrochemical Immunosensors
Seamus Higson, Professor/Head, Cranfield University, United Kingdom

This talk will detail the development of a range of ultra-sensitive micro-electrode antibody based electrochemical biosensors with lower limits of detection down to pg ml-1; for, example, prostrate specific antigen as a marker for prostrate cancer, S-100, and myelin basic protein - as markers for transient ischemic attack (stroke) - and internalin B as a marker for Listeria.


Recent Trends and Applications of Nanomaterial-based Biosensing Systems
Arben Merkoçi, ICREA Professor and Director of the Nanobioelectronics & Biosensors Group, Institut Català de Nanociencia i Nanotecnologia (ICN2), Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST), Spain

Simple and low cost platforms which are easily handled in point of care diagnostics and based on nanomaterials (NM) will be described. They take advantage of both enhanced electrochemical / optical properties of NMs. In addition lab-on-a-chip platforms that integrate NMs, either as detector phase or as signaling labels to achieve very low detection limits with interest for diagnostics or environment monitoring, will be described.

Bio Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for Sensing
Frieder Scheller, Professor, University of Potsdam, Germany

Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have the potential to substitute antibodies and enzymes as recognition elements in bioanalysis. They are stable at high temperatures and even in organic solvents. In the talk biomimetic sensors based on MIPs for the determination of drugs, antibiotics, sugars but also for enzymes and protein binders will be presented.


Thin Film Bulk Acoustic Resonator Biosensors with Femtogram Mass Sensitivity
Andrew Flewitt, Reader, Cambridge University, United Kingdom

Film bulk acoustic wave resonators (FBARs) have been shown to improve the sensitivity and detection limitation compared to other existing technologies, with the possibility of integrating an array of FBARs into existing electronics for control and data processing. However to date the usefulness of these sensors is limited to laboratories where environmental conditions, that are known to have an effect on the response of the sensors, can be tightly controlled. In this work, novel FBARs exhibiting two modes of resonance are presented.

Next Generation Biosensors and Biodetection Techniques Cont'd


Multiplexed Assays for Diagnostics and Environment
Loic Blum, Director, Universite Lyon 1, France

A multiplexed blood group genotyping system based on a classical 96-well plate with up to 200 spots per well was first developed associated with a colorimetric detection. Using an innovative immobilization process of biological elements on standard polymeric adhesive supports applicable to 96-, 384- and 1536-well micro-plates, various applications have been developed including multiplexed immunoassays for allergy diagnosis, detection of auto-antibodies against different tumor-associated antigens and pollutant sensing in water. In addition, a 96-well electrochemical method for the multiplexed monitoring of redox enzymatic reactions will be presented.


Nanoenvironment as an Amplifying Factor in Capacitive Immunoassays
Bo Mattiasson, Professor, Lund University, Sweden

Capacitive measurements with an affinity biosensor yields high sensitivity using direct registration of the binding event. A range of different analyses have been carried out with high sensitivity. Bacterial toxins, trace impurities in pharmaceutical production, specific bacterial nucleotide sequences are a few examples.

Christopher LoweKeynote Presentation

Recent Advances in Biodetection
Christopher Lowe, Professor, University of Cambridge, Director, Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences, United Kingdom

The role of a biological detection capability is to acquire information on events and hazards to allow individuals and decision makers to manage risk, to indicate the presence of threats and hazards and, when and where required, classify, identify and quantify them. This presentation will review the biological challenge and the generic detection methodologies based on physical, chemical and biological properties that may be utilised to form an integrated biodetection system. Examples of optical, acoustic and microengineered technologies will be given.

Nucleic Acid Diagnostic Tests


A Microfluidic Toolbox for Nucleic Acid Based Diagnostic Tests
Holger Becker, Chief Scientific Officer, Microfluidic ChipShop GmbH, Germany

As many biodetection assays, especially nucleic-acid based tests, require a more or less complex sample preparation protocol, microfluidics is seen as one of the key enabling technologies to realize the integration of these sample prep protocols with the detection scheme on a single device. We will present a toolbox-approach to this challenge and show examples from the molecular diagnostic, biothreat detection and food safety fields.
