Abstract

Using a photoresist derived carbon and two surface modification techniques, a genetic assay was developed for small sequence DNA hybridization biosensing using an electrochemical method. The use of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy provided a useful and meaningful technique for the measure of surface alteration on an oxygen plasma treated carbon surface. The use of 4-Aminobenzoic acid was explored as an alternative technique to surface modification for single stranded deoxyribose nucleic acid attachment and found to be ineffective.
