A fully integrated electrochemical biosensor platform fabrication process for cytokines detection

Abstract : Interleuldn-1b (IL-1b) and interleukin-10 (IL-10) biomarkers are one of many antigens that are secreted in acute stages of inflammation after left ventricle assisted device (LVAD) implantation for patients suffering from heart failure (HF). In the present study, we have developed a fully integrated electrochemical biosensor platform for cytokine detection at minute concentrations. Using eight gold working microelectrodes (WEs) the design will increase the sensitivity of detection, decrease the time of measurements, and allow a simultaneous detection of varying cytokine biomarkers. The biosensor platform was fabricated onto silicon substrates using silicon technology. Monoclonal antibodies (mAb) of anti-human IL-lb and anti-human IL-10 were electroaddressed onto the gold WEs through functionalization with 4-carboxymethyl aryl diazonium (CMA). Cyclic voltammetry (CV) was applied during the WE functionalization process to characterize the gold WE surface properties. Finally, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) characterized the modified gold WE. The biosensor platform was highly sensitive to the corresponding cytokines and no interference with other cytokines was observed. Both cytokines: IL-10 and IL-lb were detected within the range of 1 pg mL(-1) to 15 pg mL(-1). The present electrochemical biosensor platform is very promising for multi-detection of biomolecules which can dramatically decrease the time of analysis. This can provide data to clinicians and doctors concerning cytokines secretion at minute concentrations and the prediction of the first signs of inflammation after LVAD implantation.
