ANTIBODY-BASED FIBEROPTICS BIOSENSOR FOR THE CARCINOGEN BENZO(A)PYRENE.

Published

Journal Article

A new antibody-based fiberoptics biosensor was used to detect the important carcinogen benzo(a)pyrene (BaP). The fiberoptics sensor utilizes anti-BaP antibodies covalently bound to its tip. A helium cadmium laser was used as the excitation source to induce fluorescence from BaP conjugated to the bound anti-BaP antibodies. The fiberoptics device can detect 1 femtomole of BaP in a 5- mu L sample drop.
