Graphene-Based Rapid, Multiplexed, Easy, and Cheap Sensing for Personalized Medicine and Epidemiology.
I will outline our group’s newly developed Graphene Electronic Multiplexed Sensors (GEMS) platform. The device is the size of a penny and can be easily functionalized to sense four different analytes at the same time. The platform detects the presence of analytes attached to the graphene (single layer of carbon) electrically, with limits of detection relevant to clinical settings. It can be easily operated and is robust against different environments. I will discuss our demonstrations of its use for detecting antibiotic-resistant bacteria, decease biomarkers in saliva, and opioids in wastewater.
