Novel Approach for Lysozyme Detection Employing Block Copolymer Overlayers on Plastic Optical Fibers
A novel approach on lysozyme sensing is proposed by employing Polymer Optical Fibers functionalized successfully with overlayers of block copolymer sensitive materials. The detection scheme is based on electrostatic interaction between lysozyme and the copolymer. Low concentration levels of lysozyme have been detected successfully with almost spontaneous response times.
