Label-Free DNA Detection Using a Near-Field Microwave

Abstract:

Article Preview

A near-field scanning microwave microscope (NSMM) is used to study the physical properties of DNA strands with a specific sequence and image lamda-DNA bundles. After the hybridization process between target and capture sequences, specific DNA binding events leads to microwave reflection coefficient (S11) changes of the NSMM. These changes are caused by a modification of the physical dielectric constant due to sequence specific DNA binding. This study demonstrates significant potential of the NSMM as a nondestructive and noncontact tool to detect DNA strands without a target-probe amplification process and as a valuable technique to understand the physical property of DNA.
