Double-Side-Coated Grid-Type Mechanical Membrane Biosensor Based on AuNPs Self-assembly and 3D Printing

Advanced Materials Interfaces 2022 Volume 9, Issue 3, Article 2101461

The membrane based on receptor functionalization provides a new paradigm for the development of mechanical biosensors. However, improvement of sensitivity and test accuracy is still a challenge for mechanical biosensors in practical application. Herein, a surface stress mechanical biosensor (MBioS) based on double-side-gold nanoparticale (AuNP)-coated grid-type polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) membrane (D-G-MBioS) and 3D printing for human serum albumin (HSA) detection is developed. The surface stress is amplified by the grid coupling sandwich immune structure to improve the sensitivity of the MbioS, successfully reducing limite of detection (LOD) by two orders of magnitude. By self-assembly of AuNPs, the double-side-coated PDMS membrane is…

Three-dimensional cell culture approach for in vitro immunization and the production of monoclonal antibodies

Biomedical Materials 2022 Volume 17, Number 5, Article 055003

The generation of monoclonal antibodies using an in vitro immunization approach is a promising alternative to conventional hybridoma technology. As recently published, the in vitro approach enables an antigen-specific activation of B lymphocytes within 10–12 d followed by immortalization and subsequent selection of hybridomas. This in vitro process can be further improved by using a three-dimensional surrounding to stabilize the complex microenvironment required for a successful immune reaction. In this study, the suitability of Geltrex as a material for the generation of monoclonal antigen-specific antibodies by in vitro immunization was analyzed. We could show that dendritic cells, B cells, and…
