Conjugated polymers for metabolite sensing

Conjugated polymers for metabolite sensing

Internship Description

Detecting analytes and quantifying minute changes in their concentrations in bodily fluids, in the living tissue or at single cell level is one of the biggest endeavors of the biomedical engineers. We tackle this challenge by integrating biofunctionalized organic mixed conductors in customized electronic devices so that they have high sensitivity, specificity and speed. The work includes developing and testing organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs) based on various mixed conductors and evaluating their performance for biosensing.

Deliverables/Expectations

OECT fabrication and characterization

Sensor analytical characteristics

Screening different materials
