Nanostructured Ag Platforms as Biosensors of Nucleobase Chains
Nanostructured Ag platforms have been obtained by simple chemical procedure and characterized by AFM (atomic force microscopy) measurements, for use in biosensing by means of SERS (surface-enhanced Raman scattering) spectroscopy. The SERS efficiency of these substrates has been verified by microRaman measurements on small RNA chains with different nucleobase content, showing sensitivity near attomole level. It is our opinion that these metal substrates may be widely used as appropriate sensors for detecting biomolecules in many applications concerning medical diagnostics, pharmacological research and nanomaterials technology.
