Metal nanoshells as a novel substrate for biosensing applications


Journal Article

The possibility of functionalizing the nanoshell surface with antibodies to detect biomolecules via surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) was examined. Nanoshells were conjugated with antirabbit IgG. AFM revealed that antibody-conjugated nanoshells successfully bind to antigen-coated surfaces of different concentration, confirming the presence of active antibody on nanoshell surfaces.
